The East African Coast is a Mecca for the deep sea angler. Getting up early and heading off in search of the big catch is an unforgettable and exhilarating experience.
Skippers Haven is the only resort along the south beach, 40km south of Dar es Salaam, that is fully equipped for deep sea fishing. The skipper Angus Black has fished around Africa for over 20 years and he personally rates the East African Coast as one of the best areas to catch. The 19ft Tiga Kat is rigged out for sport fishing and is extremely comfortable and spacious, so when you do get that quiet moment in-between fish you can relax and recharge, ready for the next battle.
There is a wide range of fish that are targeted which include Dog tooth tuna, Marlin, Sailfish,Wahoo, Dorado, Yellow fin Tuna, Barracuda, Great Trevally and King Mackerel to mention a few. We promote a only keep for the pot policy; which means we keep fish for the restaurant but promote catch and release. All bill fish are released.
With Skippers Haven being so well located we also operate daily charters that run to Latham Island - one of the most recognised fishing grounds in Africa. The location of the resort makes one of Africa's hidden secrets very easily accesible, allowing anglers what they want, more time spent fishing!
We offer half day and full day charters and can offer packages so please contact us for more information.
