Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Simons Town, in Western Cape

The Cape waters have a world wide reputation for tuna fishing. Yellowfin tuna of over a 100kgs are landed but the average size of the fish is 50kg to 80kg.

We depart from Simon's Town harbour and travel 12 nautical miles to Cape Point. From there we head out (up to 40 n.m) to the tuna grounds. We target Yellowfin tuna, one of the world's toughest, fighting fish and a smaller member of its family, the Longfin tuna. Very often Skipjack, Katonkel and Dorado (Dolphin-fish) are also landed.

Hooking up with one of the rulers of the blue world, the Mako or Blue shark gives a great fight, but these are caught on a strict catch & release basis only. Although not common, Marlin and Swordfish can be caught at certain times of the year. It is often possible to catch yellowtail or snoek closer to Cape Point when the conditions are favourable.
