Important, please read before your Charter!
Welcome to Fish Tales fishing charters
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Fish Tales & what our fishing charters entail.
Fish Tales was started by Justin van der Walt through an extreme love for the sport of fishing.
We will go the extra mile to ensure that we did our absolute best to put you on the fish. Should this mean 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.
Please enquire before your charter on how the catch is divided. Much of our catch goes to soup kitchens, initiatives to provide nutrition to the hungry & fund raising. We provide each guest with a manageable portion of the catch. Cleaned & ready to cook for own consumption.
Please ensure that you leave all bananas & boiled eggs at home. These are absolute no no’s, you will have to do a silly dance & eat all of it at once if we find out that you smuggled some on-board.
Fishing & especially offshore fishing can be physically demanding, please disclose any medical conditions in advance.
Please ensure that you have read & understand our rules & policies.
