Big Game Fishing Safaris in Simon's Town, Cape Town, South Africa | Fishing
From Simon's Town, waters some five to twenty five miles south-west of Cape Point off the Cape of Good Hope offer some of the finest Big Game Fishing in the world. These waters provide prolific catches of Yellowfin Tuna and Longfin Tuna as well as Yellowtail, Dorado and Atlantic Big Eye Tuna. Our waters are also blessed with an abundance of Broadbill Swordfish, "the gladiator of the deep". The Cape of Good Hope has earned a reputation for being a hotspot in the world for Big Game Deep Sea Fishing.
Although the Cape of Good Hope is not known for Marlin, some numbers have been caught. They are occasionally sighted and lucky is the angler who may have the good fortune to hook one of these exotic tropical billfish.
The reefs of Rocky Bank, some six miles south of Cape Point, as well as Whittle Rock situated almost in the centre of False Bay, together with the shoreline off Strandfontein, offer good catches of Cape Salmon, Yellowtail, Elf (Shad/Bluefish ), Snapper, White and Red Stumpnose as well as Red Roman. Snoek, which in appearance is very similar to the Barracuda, are also in abundance, as are Squid.
