Richards bay fishing, Big Ocean Charters

Richards Bay fishing charters. Experience the thrill of deep-sea fishing with Big Ocean Charters.

At Big Ocean Charters our all-inclusive fishing charters take you out into the Indian Ocean off the coast of Richards Bay, for a truly exhilarating fishing experience. We have been active since May 2006 giving us more than eight years experience in the industry. We know these waters better than most and know where to find the fish. Our skippers all have more than fifteen years of experience fishing in these waters.  Our skippers all have a S.A.M.A. Certificate of competence.

Fishing for Kingfish

We focus on game, bottom (reef), and backline fishing but, can also cater for fly fishing, drop shot fishing or other charters. We are always willing to customise a charter to suit your needs. Contact us to negotiate a price.

We launch our boats through the port of Richards Bay. Boarding the boat is done from a jetty, thereafter it is a safe and comfortable trip out to sea.

We welcome everyone from beginners to experienced anglers including women and children over 8 years old. Our safe, easy launch makes this charter great for kids and beginners. The crew will help less experienced anglers with baiting up and tackle, so they can concentrate on the next big one. We will help with the cleaning of all fish caught.

Leaving Richards Bay, fishing awaits!

Note:  To avoid disappointment all adults are required to be in possession of a recreational angling permit which can be obtained at any post office.
