Welcome to Fish Tales charters:

Fish Tales charters is based in the beautiful city of Cape Town & has 2 vessels in their fleet: Fish Tales (28ft Carry Cat) & Fish Tales II (33ft Carry Cat).

Whether you are looking for that monster yellowfin tuna, want the excitement of a yellowtail taking your surface plug, want to experience traditional snoek handline fishing, whale watch or view Cape Town, Robben Island or Seal Island from the sea. Fish Tales Charters should be your first & only call.

We supply all gear needed for the day, a deckhand to assist with the day’s activities. Owner / operators, Justin van der Walt & Johann Kruger will ensure that you experience the best fishing Cape Town has to offer while ensuring your safety onboard one of our two vessels.

We mainly operate from the following (seasonal) ports: Table Bay, Houtbay, Cape Point (Millers point in Simonstown), Gordons bay & Struisbaai. Fish Tales is not bound by one port, WE GO WHERE THE FISH ARE!

Review: I booked with Justin for that long awaited fishing trip with my sons. It was the best ever father and son experience we ever had. We were well looked after and always safe. Justin really knows the Sea and has the best fishing spots ever. What an experience to see every rod on the boat with a 'fish on' simultaneously. Thank you very much Justin. You make dreams come true!!!!!
