Game Fishing Charter Suggestions


New member
Hi All,

Looking to arrange a game fishing trip for a few mates. Keen to catch any of yellow fin, wahoo, dorado, sailfish, etc. Does any one have any recommendations for fishing charters up north as far as Kenya?

Any recommendations of places you've been to or charters companies that can help arrange the trip.

Thanks in advance


A lot of options. Liveaboard or day trips? Hardcore fishing or mix of fishing, swimming, diving, drinking?

Top three would be Duarte Rato out of Bazaruto, mainly marlin but good pelagics as well. Accomodation either on the island (5*) or in Vilanculos.

Then Simba or Alleycat out of Malindi / Watamu. Good all round mix of fish depending on season. Stay in Ocean Sports or Hemingways (5*).

Then Beach Bums in Zanzibar. Can be hit and miss but they do run overnight trips for swords and day trips to Latham in season. Lots of accom options.

I am not a big fan of liveaboards along the East coast (with the exception of Madagascar) as they can be really weather dependent.
