We are very pleased to be able to take you out for a fresh catch.

FISHING HOOKED ON HOUT BAY

About the tour

Well, we can't guarantee it, that's why it's called fishing, but we will certainly do our very best to get you in the right spot with the best fishermen and boat pilots we can. You will be picked up from your hotel or B ’n B and transferred to, the delightful, and very much working harbour of Hout Bay. Hout Bay has a thriving community of local fishermen and women and they all have a great story or two to tell…and some are even true! You’ll be met by your boat captain John and your fishing guide Barry and we urge an early start to the day, so as to make the most of it. As you go out of the bay into the open ocean, you’ll pass Duiker Island on the right, teeming with seals and birds, Duiker Island also attracts a few sharks, so swimming isn’t advised. Then Chapman’s Peak on the left, which was first opened to traffic on 1922 ‘hewn out of the stone face of Sheer Mountain’ - this feat was largely achieved by convict labour. But back to the “catch of the Day" The kind of fish we’ll be going after mostly Tuna, sometimes Marlin, Dorado and Yellowtail. You’ll often see, loads of seals, Atlantic Blue Sharks and Mako’s. Closer to shore you’ll catch Snoek, a huge staple of the communities in Hout Bay, Red Roman, Kabeljou ( Cob ) and Geel Bec ( Cape Salmon) amongst other species. Tackle, Bait, Lunch, drinks and tall tales are all included. So do join us for a stunning day out in the deep blue, bobbing around, with a couple of lines in the water - it’s a fantastic way to spend a day!
