Odyssey Sport Fishing Charters is a family-run and operated charter, based in Hout Bay, South Africa, that specialises in offshore or deep sea fishing. We fish the waters just off the coast of Cape Town, which is home to some of the best fishing on the planet. On our fishing charters we mainly target tuna – both yellowfin and longfin tuna (albacore) – with the yellowfin in our waters reaching spectacular weights of 100 kg plus (check out the fishing gallery here!). We do all our fishing and exploring on our lovely catamaran, Odyssey, which docks at Hout Bay Harbour.
Odyssey Sport Fishing Charters is run by a father-and-son team – Alan and Dean Godfrey – two men who truly have a passion for the ocean. Read on to find out more about this dynamic duo, and what they have to say about themselves.
Hi guys, and thanks for showing interest in joining us for an unforgettable day on the water. I have been fishing all my life. My parents say I probably learned how to fish before I could walk. I have been involved in all aspects of fishing from offshore tuna to inshore light tackle for close on to 13 years now. I have learned from the best in the business – people I still fish with on a regular basis.
The ocean is my passion and that is evident in everything I do. I have been brought up with a huge respect for the ocean and for people as well, and I am devoted to making your day on the water a memory that will last forever.
Our fleet currently consists out of the Odyssey – a 32-foot Catamaran built by one of the top boat builders in Cape Town, 2 Oceans Marine.
