All adults engaging in fishing activities in South Africa are required to obtain a recreational angling permit for themselves from any Post Office. A temporary permit (valid for 1 month) is approximately R50pp and a permit valid for 1 year is approximately R80pp. This permit makes it legal for you to fish and be in possession of the fish you catch.
Boat rides, taking in the beautiful Umhlanga coastline from a different perspective, are also available. Enjoy the thrill of a surf launch on a 6-meter rubber duck which is sure to get your adrenaline going.
Our boats are inspected and registered yearly by SAMSA – South African Marine Safety Association.
We are registered with and come highly recommended by SA Tourism, KZN Tourism, Durban Tourism, and Umhlanga Tourism. Deep Sea Fishing Boats

Game, Reef and Shark fishing
We offer game, reef & shark fishing and you can keep your catch.
During the summer months, December to May, we have a wide variety of game fish in our waters. The most abundant species are King mackerel (Cuda), Queen mackerel (Natal Snoek), Dorado (Dolphin fish), Kingfish, Queenfish, Sailfish, Marlin and Tuna. We catch 3 different types of Tuna in our area, namely Yellow Fin, East Coast (Kawakawa) and Sada Sada. We use both live bait and lures to catch most of these fish.
In the winter months, June to November, we still get Tuna and Queen mackerel but the main target is Garrick (Leervis). These are very strong fighting game fish caught using live bait just behind the waves…Very exciting!
All year round we have good catches of reef fish like Rock cod, salmon and reds (Slingers & Soldiers).
When fishing for sharks we tend to target the smaller Grey sharks as these provide the most excitement for anglers due to their size. They are generally between 8kg and 50kg so give a good fight. Please note all sharks are released.
