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

We fished for 30 mins. Squid were attacking our bait. They said squid made excellent bait there, but no attempt was made to downsize tackle, catch the squid, then use it as bait. Instead we sailed round and round while the skipper looked at his fish finder. We then went all the way down to cape point, just to come... More

After a disastrous attempt at shark diving, we decided to do a fishing trip. We had no idea what options were available in Cape Town and were open to suggestions. We didn't have any expectations when we booked with the Big Blue guys from Simons Town. They were one of the few outfits that have permanent docking facilities where they... More

We hit the nail right on the head with the weather and fish. We couldn't have asked for better sea conditions and the marine life and fish were plentiful. We booked our trip before our holiday at a very reasonable rate and it was well worth the $$. Our boat was very comfortable and the crew were exceptional. They put... More
