Cape Point Fishing Trip

This inshore fishing trip will take you out to Cape Point where we will try our hand at some yellowtail fishing.

This is a half-day adventure out at sea, on the beautiful and fully equipped Blue Pointer, with her very knowledgeable skipper and crew who have many years of fishing experience.

 Come see Cape Point from the oceans angle. Take the idyllic photo as we make our way past the picture-perfect Smitswikel Bay, Buffels Bay and past Dias Cross. We will venture close to the cliffs below the historic Cape of Storms famous lighthouse and then make our way to the Point. There all you need to do is enjoy some inshore fishing and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Cape Point Fishing Trip

Leaving Simons Town just as the sun rises over the False Bay mountain range, will leave you breathless at its beauty. The trip itself, to Cape Point is approx. 45 minutes to an hour in which you will experience encounters with Cape Fur seals, whales and a plethora of ocean and pelagic bird life.

We will find a good spot to anchor and fish. Most of the fishing will be catch and release and you are welcome to take home a fish “ for the pan”.

On your way back you can take a photo of Roman Rock Lighthouse; the only lighthouse on our coast to have been built on a single rock, in so doing, taking a little bit of the Cape of Storms history with you.

 It is a day to remember, and as we make our way back to Simons Town, you will have an hour to once again enjoy the coastline from the safety and security of the Blue Pointer.
