Deep Sea Fishing Knysna

Deep Sea Fishing Knysna operates out the famous Knysna Heads in the Garden Route of South Africa. They offer exciting fishing adventures battling an ever-changing cast of fish, from warm-water species like Cape Salmon and Cob to cold-water fish like Hake and Red Roman. There’s never a bad time to fish when the waters are this good!

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 28’ Budcat catamaran. She is a fully inspected vessel and comes with a full complement of safety equipment to let you enjoy your day with peace of mind and focus fully on the fishing. The vessel has room for up to 10 guests and is equipped with everything you will need for a great day of fishing.

On every trip, you will be guided by the boat’s GPS and fishfinder, and by her seasoned skipper, who will use a mix of technology and natural indicators like birds and the color of the water to get you into the best position for catching big fish.

Once you’re at the fishing grounds, you can spend the day trolling and bottom fishing for Cape Salmon, Yellowtail, Rock Cod, Red Roman, and even Yellowfin Tuna.

Everyone is welcome on board, and children from 12 years old can join. These trips need a minimum of 4 people to be able to run, so grab your fishing friends or family and come down and have a great adventure with the crew of Deep Sea Fishing Knysna.

All trips come with tackle, lures, and a cleaning and filleting service for your catch at the end of the day. All you have to bring is any food and drink you may want, as well as a fishing license. You should also bring a cooler to put all your delicious fish in at the end of the day. And you’d better bring a big one, because you won’t be going home empty-handed!
