    Great fishing trip with Alan and his crew! We were able to catch both Snoek and Yellowtail on the Cape Point Trip - awesome views included. Highly recommend!

    Mike is a fantastic captain and very knowledgeable about the waters around cape point. We caught a big yellowfin tuna, some skipjacks, and had a great time. Would definitely recommend taking your charter with Big Blue Fishing Charters.

    We were in Simon's Town for the morning and decided to treat ourselves to a boat trip. We contacted Trident to see what they had on offer as we did not want to spend too much time out on the water. They were extremely accommodating and took us out on a trip around the bay and to Boulder Beach. It was my first time out to sea and even though I was a bit nervous at first, I really enjoyed it. It was lovely to be in such a natural environment and to watch the seals at play.

    Our skipper Paul had a deep love and respect for the ocean (even picking up litter that floated alongside the boat). He also had a great knowledge on the ocean life, particularly the birds, making our trip educational as well.

    I highly recommend contacting Trident for a trip next time you are in the area.

    We had a fantastic experience yesterday with a day fishing tour. Dawie & Ilze are passionate about their job and offered a super fast boat with 2 engines 200 hp each that made everyone conhortable for space available and full equipment for fishing offered. I would recommend this charter company to friends & family. Besides, with took 5 big yellow tail fish tks to the experience of captain Dawie.

    Please read. Peter is not only extremely knowledgeable and experienced, he’s honest and accommodating plus extremely funny!
    We had booked to deep sea fish for Tuna and Peter could of easily taken us out, taken full money and we would of caught nothing as Tuna haven’t been in the waters for a while currently.
    He recommended we fish for other species like Snoek and Yellowtail.
    A lot of other companies would of taken our money for a full day of Tuna fishing and we would of returned empty handed and disappointed.

    Therefore, he recommended we pay the smaller package where we would catch and have a great, day out to which he wasn’t wrong! We all caught a load of Snoek, which not only put up a tough fight, they taste good on the braai!!!

    They even prepared the fish we caught to take home.

    Peters boat is perfect if you’re a group of 3/4 people and he goes the extra mile to accommodate everyone. He’s a real fisherman with vast knowledge and he made our trip worthwhile!!

    Highly recommend to all!
