Aweigh adventures, a fully licenced and registered charter operator in the Bay of St Francis, is licensed to take paying guests on open water, deep sea excursions of up to 40 nautical miles off shore of South Africa, day and night.
Professional deep sea fishing charters and ocean cruises are presented by Aweigh Adventures daily from the protected port of St Francis and all safety equipment as well as fishing equipment and bait is provided for selected trips, perfect for the whole family.
With over 20 years tourism experience, reliability, attention to detail and safety are the cornerstones of our operation (fun, safety, fish, in that order). A trip out with Harry is authentic,
fun filled and entertaining, with the history of the area, industry, marine life and funny anecdotes being lovingly shared,
to make every trip with Aweigh Adventures an incredible
Harry has taken over 1650 people out into the Indian Ocean without a single incident, not even a cut/scratch/hook/spike… That says something. "I have been fishing since I could sit up and hold a rod and know our coast and its weather intimately, from growing up here. I’m not easily surprised, which is handy when you’re out at sea. I wear a hat but I’m not a cowboy. Your safety and the quality of your experience is my highest priority". Harry Bateman.
