About Us

Welcome to Riptide Fishing Charters

Riptide Fishing Charters is a well established fishing charter business and we operate from Shelly Beach on the KZN South Coast of South Africa, just and hour's drive from Durban.

We operate from the Shelly Beach launch site which allows us the luxury of a dry launch, so there is no need to get wet on those chilly winter mornings which is often the case when launching directly from the beach. Our boat is a 28ft Butt Cat.

We pride ourselves in offering a professional service and our skippers are experienced fisherman with many hours logged out at sea.

We can cater for all skill levels, from novice anglers to fly fisherman. Children and women are welcome and we even have an on-board toilet especially for the ladies.

An added bonus to many of our fishing trips is the excitement of witnessing dolphins, sea birds, turtles and even whales. If you are lucky enough you could even experience the excitement of the annual sardine run, which is an experience all of it's own.

All bait and equipment is supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own rods, reels etc.

Besides the fishing, we also do pleasure trips up and down the coast

Shelly Beach is nice and centrally located on the Lower South Coast, and with the ever popular Shelly Shopping Centre located just a stones throw from the launch site there is plenty to keep those family members busy that do not want to partake in the fishing activities.
