The summer is in full swing in SODWANA BAY and good DEEP SEA catches are expected this summer.

We are expecting a bumper Billfish season in SODWANA BAY. The big competitions are on during November 2013 and both DURABLE and DURABLE II are geared and ready to take on whatever SODWANA BAY has on offer. SODWANA BAY CHARTERS and DURABLE supports catch-and-release of Billfish and we encourage our anglers to keep only what they intend to eat.


Some nice Yellow Fin Tuna caught by Lourens Campher and friends off DURABLE. DURABLE is our flagship DEEP SEA FISHING vessel and she is skippered by FOLLIE JANSE VAN VUUREN. DURABLE  is the biggest charter boat in operation in SODWANA BAY.

Well done Bruce. An awesome GT of 20 kg caught off Durable II. This is our forth Giant Kingfish over 20 kg caught off Durable and Durable II this winter.


Paradise on the KZN North Coast. Riccardo and friends visited Sodwana Bay Charters during the September 2013 long week-end and fished off Durable.


The juniors also got stuck into some nice fish during the September long week-end. Thanks Brett for fishing on Durable II. Your first King Mackerel (Couta).


Jannie en Elmarie Bredenhan van Sentraal Druk in Pretoria het weer in Sodwana Baai kom kuier. Ons het lekker gekuier soos altyd. Jannie en Elmarie het ‘n marlyn vir ‘n kort rukkie aangehad op 10kg lyn, maar ongelukkig verloor. Hulle het reeds die volgende visvang “trippie” bespreek om die marlyn wat weggekom het kans te gee om ‘n bietjie groter te word. Marlyn-1:  Bredenhan-0.

Winter fishing in Sodwana Bay

Congratulation to Duan and Xan Swart. 18 kg GT and a nice Couta (King Mackerel) caught off the boat DURABLE, skippered by Peter. Sea conditions are calm with the occasional cold fronts coming through as expected. with a little more effort, good catches are still recorded during the winter months.



Hashim Amla (Protea cricketer and world’s best batsman) brought his friends to Sodwana Bay for a deep sea fishing trip on DURABLE. What an awesome day with the world’s best batsman and his friends. Hashim found the sea a bit rocky, but as soon as the fish was on, he hit them for six. Great having you guys on the boat.
