Absolutely fantastic experience for me and my family. Captain Mark and first mate AJ provided a magical day on the comfortable big boat Fishtales ll. We left Haut Bay in the morning loaded with a big coffee thermos, and headed out on smooth water, with no wind. Before we knew it dolphins were playing around the boat, giant round sunfish and the Cape Fur Seals were diving all around us. After some great views of CapeTown, we turned out and headed for Robben Island. AJ got the fishing lines in the water and the lures ready to go, Capt Mark studied the fish finder and we all watched for birds working above schools of fish. Suddenly -“There she blows!!” And a pod of Pilot Whales surfaced . Their blow holes snorting and fluke tails slapping… truly a once in a lifetime experience for my family.
I can’t thank the whole Fishtales crew, enough for the magical day out on the water. I would recommend this outfit to all levels of fishing- for the casual beginner – a day of trolling and light spin casting, all the way up to experienced angler- a full all day off shore ( 40 miles ) pulling in Bluefin Tuna. Captain Mark was going out at the crack of dawn for an all day tuna charter the next day.
I can not recommend this charter boat highly enough – and next year when I’m back here in CapeTown again from the USA, I’ll hire them again. Here’s to a prosperous 2019- Thomas Cox
