Located in Zanzibar this fishing charter is excellent for your deep sea fishing trips with your family and friends. Everything is on board to enjoy a wonderful day fishing in Kendwa. We offer half day or full day fishing trips and go an extra mile to ensure your trip is memorable and productive.

The channel between Zanzibar and Pemba in particular, is an internationally renowned site consistently providing first-rate big game fishing opportunities. With large schools of Barracuda, Wahoo, Kingfish and Giant Travelli in the area all year round, and seasonal visits from many other species such as Marlin, big game fishing with Zanzibar Watersports will be thrilling experience you will never forget!

Everyone is welcome aboard our fishing charters - from novice to experienced anglers, to corporate groups and families. Book this boat now and enjoy a great day fishing in Kendwa.

A full set of tackle is provided with Shimano and Penn International rods and reels, spooled with 80lb, 50lb, 30lb or 20lb mono lines. Clients who wish to use their own lighter tackle are welcome (we comply with the IGFA fly fishing regulations).

Our experienced skippers and crew have been fishing in these waters for decades, and have specialised in big game fishing for the last 10years. They are always happy to instruct novices and talk anglers through any procedure in the course of reeling in their catch, or just give hints and tips to improve your technique.

Tag and release is generally encouraged for all big fish unless it is the fisherman's first ever catch, his biggest to date, or if it is likely to be an East African or All Africa record.

August to November provides really good sport for the big Yellowfin Tuna, one of the strongest fish around. Big Blue Marlin and a number of Striped and Black Marlin are also found, as well as Sailfish. During this season, multiple hook ups are normal, when the ocean can come alive with huge schools of Tuna in pursuit of smaller fish.

During the billfish season, which is from November to March, Striped Marlin are the most prolific, sometimes showing in packs of up to ten. Large Blue and Black Marlin are also quite common during this period.
