About us

Umhlanga Ocean Charters officially opened in January 2016 offering unforgettable scenic Boat Trips just 16km from central Durban in the popular seaside resort town of Umhlanga Rocks, South Africa.

One of the things we see most often before our customers board our vessels is their eyes wondering across the life jackets, darting over the safety equipment and funny enough checking the vessel for leaks. Well, we’re here to tell you that you have nothing to worry about. Together with Zaan (Our Skipper) who has a 17-year career in our industry and over 20 000 launches under his belt, Zaan has acquired an in-depth knowledge of the ocean and considers safety a top priority. We are a very understanding bunch and we know more than anyone, just how important it is to be safe while we are out at sea.

For those who would like to make use of a fishing charter service, we have great news for you! As fishing is our passion; we are now offering Deep Sea Fishing Charters for those anglers who are seeking a Unique Durban Fishing Charter experience. We aim to give you a more personal, comfortable and memorable fishing experience by providing the necessary attention to each fisherman aboard the vessel. We do this by limiting the number of patrons we take on board the vessel, thus ensuring that each person is given the skippers undivided attention.

Obviously, fishing isn’t for everybody, which is why Umhlanga Ocean Charters features a casual cruise for our voyagers who wish to kick-back, relax, and soak up some sun while sailing along Durban’s Coastline. A truly serene experience which offers breathtaking views of the city skyline that will impress even the most seasoned Durbanite.

So, for a healthy dose of fresh sea air and the ultimate seafaring experience.
