Umhlanga Ocean Charters, was very misleading, I like deep sea fishing and ask the reception for near by charters, he recommend a charter that is claiming to launched from the grannies pool, I left in the morning at 5 am to meet at the grannies pool,I got there and was told I need to get a taxi and go to Durban harbor, I left and went back to the hotel, at 9 in the morning I went down to the beach where I met the Casea Charters- Elaine, which indeed have a licence to launch from the Grannies pool, I booked a fishing trip for the next day without any inconvenience.( Casea Charters 083 690 2511 ) i rely think its sad to mislead your customers like this, no happy.

I went out with the carter to see look for wales and dolphins. Unfortunately we did not find any. The skipper knew his craft and gave us a briefing on the sharks net. He done very well and i will defensibly go again.

Best whale watching experience ever. Having watched whales in various place s around the world this was the best. The small boat and skilled guide enabled to get so close to breaching whales without disturbing them in any way. Zaan the skillfully placed the boat so we could just watch the humpback whales swim slowly past our bows, so close as to look into their eyes. I know we were lucky but still a very special moment.

We had great fun, we were on a 5 hour fishing trip and caught Rock cod and red roman fish. The tuna wasn't there, they were after the sardines. Next time we will get them. Our skipper Zaan Grobler, can't ask for a better skipper. Thankyou very much for the fishing trip. We will see you again

What a wonderful experience! Decided on a last minute road trip down to the coastline. We had a foreigner from Holland with us and she dying to go out onto the ocean. Unfortunately, the rubber duck wasn't available for us to go on. Due to our last minute booking. But, being the lovely couple they are, Zaan and his wife took us out on his own boat! We managed to see some amazing activity displayed by the dolphins of the coastline. The amazing couple did not stop there. Being the passionate fisherman I am. Zaan tossed out a couple of his rods and told us if we hook a fish, we could bring it in! What incredible people. They gave very interesting information about the coastline of South Africa! Zaan and his wife are also extremely passionate about their jobs and I would highly recommend Umhlanga Ocean Charters to anyone who would like to experience a true out on the ocean experience! Thank you so much for treating us. Was well worth it! And we look forward to rebooking in the near future.
