More about Offshore Tuna Fishing

For 9 months of the year Cape Boat Charters will take you out into the deeper oceanic waters off Cape Point.

As a result of two large ocean currents – the Benguela and Agulhas currents – mixing, as well as the prevailing winds, nutrient-rich waters are found at a place known to locals as the “Canyon” – this area is found close to the continental shelf, and it is here that we target the large tuna!

Few things can be as exciting as hooking and playing a huge Yellowfin tuna – it can take anything from 20 minutes to several hours to land a single fish! By that time, you are TIRED!! But you will never forget the experience, and you will have stories for your friends around the braai/barbecue for many years to come!!

MINIMUM REQUIRED PASSENGERS Please note that we require a minimum of 5 guests to go out on this charter. If this number is not reached, the charter will have to be re-scheduled. We will get in contact with you to reschedule the charter to a convenient time, or to arrange for a refund.
