About us


Fish Tales Charters was started by Justin van der Walt through an extreme love for the sport of fishing.

Fish Tales Charters is endorsed by Cape Town Tourism. Click here to see certificate.

We strive to go the extra mile to ensure that you have an enjoyable day at sea & have your own fishing tales to take home with you & share with your friends & family. We don’t mind staying longer or covering more distance than normal. You are the no 1 priority to catch a fish on the day, but don’t be surprised if we join in on the fishing , it’s not just a business, it’s a passion.

Fish Tales lets you keep your catch should you want, but the skipper decides on the day how the catch is divided.

Some of our accomplishments:

World record Bigeye Tuna spearfished from Fish Tales – Skipper Mark Manchip – April 2017

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!!!!!
