Good day Gents

I'm in the process of planning an offshore fishing trip down to Hout bay for late Feb early March 2020 for myself and my permanent crew member on my boat.

I've managed to get quotes from extreme fishing charters for their Yellow fin tuna trips, which is pretty pricey.

I'm planning to do 2 trips out to the deep.

Ideally i'd like to fly down on friday, fish on saturday and Sunday. Then fly back early on monday morning.

Could you guys assist me with contact details of relatively cheap / decent accomodation close to the harbour. Secondly if you have had a good personal experience with any other charters, i'd appreciate some feedback on their operations and contact details.

Also if any of these charters offer additional services like airport transfers, accomodation and couriering of the filleted fish to Dbn???????

Thanking you in advance.

Howzit bud... I'd definitely make contact with Miles and a few others in the Cape on boatfishing forum. Chasing out to the deep is a big and expensive trip. The more knowledge you have the better and there's no knowledge like local knowledge. Miles is a fantastic bloke who will go out of his way to help.

Hooked on Africa, Two Oceans Sportfishing, FishTales, Outrageous Charters. Several to choose from.

Make sure you book the owner / skipper and not some glorified deckhand.

Seacliff Lodge is reasonable to stay.
I don't know about couriering the fish.

Just note that the fishery is VERY weather dependant so it is best to have flexible dates. You should know by Tuesday but preferably Wednesday if the weekend is looking fishable.
