Swissroll Charters

You can’t go wrong with Swissroll Charters. Captain Ralph Nussbaumer and his experienced crew can put any breed of anglers on top of the hottest bite around. All you have to do is bring your fishing buddies and head to Durban, South Africa.

The crew will be on hand to assist all newcomers to the world of sportfishing. They will provide you with all the latest tackle, reels, and bait to make a great catch possible. Their boat, the ‘Swissroll,’ is a 30’ Marlin Strike with a seated cabin, a fully functional restroom, and a carpeted deck. She houses the latest GPS and full-color fish finding electronics, as well as autopilot. The Swissroll comes powered by two 150 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engines and can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

Summertime is all about fishing for Marlin up 30km out. Bottom fishing is done closer to shore, along with trolling for Tuna. All other exciting species such as Amberjack, Musselcracker, Scotsman, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Dagga Salmon, King Soldiers, Rockcod, Sada-Sada, Cape Yellowtail, Geelbek… and whatever else lives in the “aquarium.” As fresh as it comes, you will be able to taste your catch while out at sea.

Don’t hesitate to bring your lunch and drinks with you!
