“Talk about monster fish!”
Reviewed 20 September 2016

Wow what an experience! I've never seen such massive monstrous fish in my life being pulled out of the sea. If only there were more hours in the day so that we could have caught more. Highly recommend this for anyone who's an ocean lover

“World Class!”
Reviewed 16 June 2016

Spent a great day out at sea with our captain James and his deckhand Guy on board the Kahuna. Could not ask for better service, they were very knowledgeable and highly professional, as well as being great company. We caught numerous tuna and yellowtail throughout the trip, which ensured for a fun and memorable day. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend Xtreme fishing charters.

Superb day tuna fishing out of Hout Bay, I would highly recommend Matthew as a skilful, competent and knowledgeable skipper who not only knows how to find the fish but is also decent company

“Unbelievable day catching tuna”
Reviewed 23 February 2016

Although I don't usually write reviews, I thought that the world class experience I had with Xtreme Charters was worth sharing. Matt and his team put us into some unbelievable fish and their knowledge and expertise is second to none. Having never fished in the deep for yellowfin, I found that the advice and experience of those on the boat quickly got me up to speed culminating in my first yellowfin of around 40kg coming to hand within an hour of fishing. Overall we managed to have close to 20 of these monsters on the line throughout the day with one of close to 80kg coming loose at the boat. The boat was incredibly comfortable with a very relaxed vibe and the guides are there to answer any questions that you may have about both the fishing and the staggering amount of marine and bird life that abounds. Whether you are a seasoned deep sea angler or a novice like myself, I have no hesitation in recommending Xtreme charters for this once in a lifetime experience.

Was a great outing. I'm sure my sons will never forget catching their first Yellowfin Tuna. Thanks for your patience with them & with me Matthew.
