Went out for a 6hr trip, was told by the booker that great conditions were to be had. Immediately after clearing the creek we could see that this wasn't to be the case. 3m swell with 2.5m waves and a force 6 wind meant a brutal ride as the boat rocked hard in every way; really not for the feint-hearted. No explanation of what we were looking for, no live bait and we simply trolled up and down the coast for 4hrs using lures until we'd had enough and asked to go back early. Didn't even get to hold a rod and not a nibble to be had apart from landing two plastic bags, which sadly were thrown back into the ocean. No safety briefing, though I found the 'life jackets'(buoyancy aids) myself. I appreciate this time of year isn't peak fishing season, but I'd also appreciate being told what to expect at the time of booking, rather than taking the cash and going out regardless. If we'd had children with us, this would've been a terrifying experience for them. Walter seemed like a nice guy when we met him back on shore, but would recommend a little up-front honesty. It was simply a waste of time and a lot of (our) money to take people fishing in those conditions.

My friend and I chartered one of Walters 3 fishing boats for 5 days at the end of November. We fished on 2 different ones and both very very comfortable and large sea - worthy boats (44ft). The fishing was good even though we came in a period that is considered off season for Bill fish. We caught a bunch of Mahi and Tuna and even managed to win the local fishing tournament this year. Walters crew is experienced and have a passion for fishing - I would highly recommend this company and the fact that his prices are about half of those of the rest of the world make it even better!

Stunning scenery going up and down the Creek and out towards the Indian Ocean. The crew had so many interesting local stories and kept us entertained the whole trip. African hospitality!
