Marlin Fishing, Tuna Fishing, Game Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing Charter and Boat Cruises in Durban South Africa. One of Durban's most popular Charter Fishing boats, moored at Wilsons Wharf Marina in Durban Harbour. Our Boats have a good reputation and catch rate, with many satisfied and repeat customers. We are probably the best equipped charter operating out of Durban.
