Umhlanga Ocean Charters - Deep Sea Fishing

“Umhlanga Ocean Charters II” is a 19ft Yeld Cat, fitted with 2 x 80HP Yamaha motors and is equipped with top of the range rods and reels from “The Kingfisher” to ensure your fishing experience is of the utmost quality. 

We cater for private charters and can also fill our boat with separate individuals. We support responsible and sustainable fishing practices. 

We only take out a maximum of 4 anglers per trip in order to ensure that you have the skippers full attention at all times. Each angler will be supplied with their own rods to enable equal opportunity of hooking that “BIG CATCH”. Our Deep Sea Fishing Charter situated at Granny’s Pool Umhlanga Beach near Durban; is for those anglers who are seeking a Unique Fishing Charter on a neat and comfortable boat fitted with high-quality equipment and tackle, together with the personal assistance and guiding of our skipper and angler.  We aim to give you a more personal, comfortable and memorable fishing experience.

You can also select some of our artificial lure specialities like spinning, popping and drop shot on our trips. Your catch is yours to keep; however, to better ensure the future of our reefs, we do encourage “Tag and Release”.  There is no guarantee of catching fish but our skipper will do his best to ensure that the best efforts are made and that your outing with us is that of an exciting and memorable one.
