Charter fishing off the Colphin Coast is an experience not to be missed and Ocean Echo Fishing Charters offer an exhilarating surf launch off Zinkwazi Beach.
Ocean Echo Fishing Charters provide a customized service that includes Day and Night Fishing, Game and Bottom Fishing, Whale and Dolphin viewing or a Leisure trip enjoying our beautiful ocean and coastline, as well as Spearfishing (own spearfishing equipment to be supplied). All other fishing equipment and bait will be supplied by Ocean Echo Fishing Charters. Beginners are welcome and assistance will be supplied.
Due to the water conditions off the Tugela River Mouth and low boat activity, one can experience a rare sighting of the humpback dolphins as well as the common bottle nose dolphin’s which is ideal for leisure trips. There is extensive shark activity over the Northern area of Zinkwazi where the sharks come up and eat bait fish, this allows for awesome viewing.
Bryan Potgieter is your skipper as well as the owner of Ocean Echo, with 23 years of fishing and spearfishing experience and a passion for the ocean! As safety is the key issue, we want you to be able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that you are in the care of a very experienced crew.
Ocean Echo is 23ft in length, has a Gunya Gunya Mono hull, a walk around cabin and was built by Bryton Ski’s. She sports 2 x 2009 model 85hp Yamaha Engines and has 2 live bait hatches, GPS Plotter and Fishfinder on board. All traces are handmade by Bryan. Overall she is very stable and seaworthy which allows her to withstand most conditions the surf can throw at her.
An angling license is required for each fisherman on board the boat; these can be purchased at any Post Office in SA and must be obtained prior to launching. You may keep what you catch and these fish will be cleaned and prepared for taking home.
