A Fishing Charter is where a Fishing boat owner hires out the use of the boat to groups for fishing expeditions on the sea or other bodies of water.
Along South Africa’s coast, this is an important generator of revenue to owners of fishing boats. For part-time and amateur anglers, it is more cost effective to rent a fishing boat as part of a Fishing Charter, than to buy and operate their own boat, and that is a win-win solution to both parties. Some fishing charter operators also get involved in more diverse activities like whale watching, shark cage diving,scuba dive trips and photographic expeditions.
