Odyssea Fishing Charters

Odyssea Fishing Charters specializes in putting customers on some really big fish. The waters surrounding Cape Town are teeming with fish species. Whether you head offshore or stay on the beach and fish surfside, it’s bound to be a productive day!

Captain Michael Wagner welcomes you aboard his 25’ Butt Cat 685 walkaround catamaran, perfect for up to 4 anglers. Powered by twin 115 HP Suzuki engines, you’ll reach speeds of up to 30 knots and get to your fishing destinations with wase.

She’s also rigged with navigational equipment and has a large fishing platform to ensure your fishing is safe and smooth. You’ll be given a harness to brave it out against big game and standard fishing gear also awaits.

The reefs and inshore waters here have a lot to offer and you’ll hook into the likes of Yellowtail Amberjack and Cape Snoek. The true magic, though, happens further out. On Tuna trips, you’ll head some 40 miles to battle it out with massive and delicious fish.

If you’re more of a close encounter type of angler, the captain and his first mate can accommodate your wishes – just make sure to bring your spearfishing equipment and take out a licence at one of the local authorized offices.

The crew of the Odyssea Fishing Charters serves food and drinks to ensure you’re comfortable and making the most of your time of the water. They’ll also clean and fillet your catch.

Bring warm clothes, closed-toe shoes, and sunblock. Take your fellow anglers, kids, and friends and head out on your very own Cape Town "Odyssey"!
