Watch out. This company charges R20 000 per day and then you cannot take the fish you catch (they give you only some of what you caught). They let you pay for the trip and then they make money from the fish you have caught.

Racist company. As soon as owner realizes a non white person is trying to book, he goes silent! Emails and Instagram DMs, no response.

After sharing our bad experience dealing with Sean from Hooked on Africa, this is his “professional response”. Absolutely disgusted and shocked at how this person runs his business. Stay away and avoid this company as he apparently has enough customers. What an absolute rip off.

It would be nice if i new what was being spoken about BUT if my memory serves me correctly remembering i do 120 charters per year this discussion was about PRICE. Perhaps they questioned why i charge what i do and they can get it cheaper elsewhere in which case i probably said well then go and book their/// Having done this for 30 years i must have my ducks in a row??? in order for me to have survived this long and still going strong.

Overall it was a great experience but a huge disappointment in terms of transparency from the owner, Sean. We payed almost R20 000 and bought this experience as a gift for my dad in law and two friends who are Capetonians. As much as they enjoyed the trip, they caught over 500kg of fish and walked away with a measly 2kg per person. No mention about these terms and conditions on the website or through the phone when we booked the trip. 25 fish were caught, and one would expect a reputable company to at least give each guy a good portion of the fish. Dad and the men crewed for the entire day so that Hooked on Africa can sell their catch. It sounds like a money making scheme and has left a sour taste.

Sorry for the late response BUT this is as far from the TRUTH as it gets in fact your Father and crew got 3 WHOLE TUNA not 2kgs so please get your facts straight and in fact were offered more BUT declined until a few days LATER.
