Absolutely fantastic fishing day with the best crew imaginable....very friendly with a professional attitude. The day kicked off trolling for yellowtail along a stretch of incredibly beautiful coastline at Cape Point. The afternoon was spent fishing on reefs, mostly bream, 2 huge roman and 1 massive shark....was excellent fun!! The day was thoroughly enjoyed and we left with a bag... More

I went along with another British friend in February. We had some breakfast at the cafe and walked the two minutes to the Marina a bit later. We had a warm welcome from Ros and pretty soon after our boat turned up. We were on a really great 32ft boat (branded Fish Eagle Charters - perhaps they sub-contract?). It was... More

A really wonderful day. Superb fishing. Plently of skipjack, brown bream, cob and a yellowtail. We all had a yellowtail on the line, only 1 was landed. Great fight. Ros was wonderful and very accomodating.

As a local, I am in a fortunate position to be able to choose the best weather and fishing days. I've fished with Big Blue on numerous occasions and still enjoy the experience every time I go out with them. In December I had some friends visiting from up North and my suggestion of a fishing day went down well.... More

Just had a very good fishing trip with Big blue fishing charters from Simons Town. While we did not break any fishing records, we had a super day on the water and enjoyed our surroundings. The crew were easy going and friendly and clearly knew their trade. They were very helpful with equipment and bait and quickly unhooked fish and... More

My keen fishing husband and I recently had the best day out with big blue. I am not that interested in fishing but went along as we do not get much time to do activities as a couple and I was surprised at just how much fun we had. We went on a 6 hour charter and I am glad... More

My 2 sons and I had an absolute blast with Big Blue fishing charters and their very competent team. Ros and everybody from the big blue team were professional, attentive and most of all, helpful. The crew on the boat ensured we had maximum opportunity to have lines in the water when possible and we caught a variety of fish... More

As this was my first time deep sea fishing with Big Blue, I was unsure of what to expect. My experience so far has been fishing in rivers and mainly fresh water inland fishing. I was very impressed with their sports fishing boat and the amount of good condition tackle and equipment that was supplied. Wyatt the deckhand was on... More

After our previous fishing adventure with Big Blue charters, we decided to do a trip specifically targeting yellowtail. When we arrived at Cape Point, the crew started looking for signs of fish. We eventually spotted birds in the distance dropping out of the sky into the bait fish that were chased up to the surface be large shoals of yellowtail.... More
