Awesome Fishing Charters

Harbour Rd, Struisbaai Harbour
Struisbaai WC, South Africa

Awesome Charters is the premier saltwater fishing charter operating out of Struisbaai harbour. We use a 28ft Butt Cat and the best fishing equipment to provide you with the finest deep sea fishing experience at the southernmost tip of Africa.

The boat “Awesome” is a 28’ Butt Cat, fitted with two 140 HP outboard motors and is SAMSA seaworthy certified to carry two (crew) plus six passengers, up to 40 nautical miles offshore.

Along the twenty kilometer stretch of white beaches from the harbor to Arniston Point, or when cruising around to the most southern Light House in Africa at L’Agulhas you may even spot some sunfish or dolphins and whales.

Fishing consists mainly of trolling for game fish at either the Three, the Six, or the Twelve Mile Bank or, in perfect weather, a day trip to the Alphard Banks or the “45’s”.

Game fish species targeted are Yellowtail, Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito, Skipjack, Dorado and Marlin. These species are mainly caught during the summer months (November – March).
