Experience the spirit of the south

Our Durban Fishing Charters -Memories that last a lifetime.

The Spirit of the South is an executive-level fishing charter leaving from Durban’s Wilson’s Wharf.  We specialize in fishing excursions in Durban Bay, out to the backline, or at deep-sea – depending on the weather conditions and the client’s preference.

Charter the Spirit of the South for an enjoyable and memorable fishing trip challenging enough for seasoned fishermen, or novices who are still honing their skills. 

Sitting relatively high on the water, the Spirit of the South profile is ideal for a long drift parallel to the coast, solitude of the Sea, camaraderie of fishermen.
