North Kenya Coast
"We still have some of the most exciting fishing anywhere on offer, Grand Slams, Super Slams and even Fantasy Slams on billfish are a very real dream here"
Our fishing charters are based out of Watamu, but we do fish out of other locations along the East African coast on request.
If you are a serious fisherman you'll want to go for a long day as this gives you the best chance of being out there when the fish come up and start to take.
This takes ten hours, starting at 6:30am to 4:30pm. Due to the distance to travel from Watamu you will need to book a long day if you want to fish for sailfish off Malindi or head out into the deep water looking for marlin later in the season.
This takes six and a half hours, starting at 6:30am to 1:00pm. This is perfect for the beginner or early season when the fishing is just outside the Watamu harbor. A short day can always be extended while you are at sea if everybody is enjoying it or the fishing is too good to leave as it often is in the afternoon.
This is normally dinghy fishing with light tackle for Giant trevalley, Bluefin trevalley. barracuda, snapper, rock cod and various other species found in the creek or on the reef.
Methods of fishing include spinning, trolling, fly fishing and bottom fishing, all produce results.
It's a great way to spend the day. Ideal for kids and adults.
A super exciting way to fish for Sailfish.
This can be done on either a long day or a short day. Primarily targeting Sailfish but Marlin and other game fish also available to the fly fisherman. Anglers must bring their own tackle and flies ,however we do have a back up fly rod available
"I think over the years I have learnt that whilst fishing is about catching fish it is also about enjoyment, the Oceans offer many incredible sights, whales, dolphins, turtles, feeding frenzies, sea birds and the whole eco systems surrounding floating objects that are often worth stopping near and just taking a few minutes to enjoy." - Pete Darnborough, Watamu
