  • This by far has to be the best Fishing Adventure ever. Having fished in Moz & previously here in Durban, the guys from Aqua Nautical Adventures have gone beyond in providing a service like no other. From the time I set foot on their fishing vessel 'Blu Ray' to returning after an awesome day of fishing, everything was perfect.

  • The coolest boat and most well-rigged boat I have ever been on, it's one of the best birthday celebrations and fishing trips I have ever been on, a spectacular boat with amazing skippers and mind-blowing views throughout the trip.This boat has everything, even autopilot !!!

  • This was my first time out at sea and I had a fantastic time, the crew were so professional and were determined to find us fish to catch which we did. It was unbelievable and would do it again in a flash.
