Fishing Charters

Executive level fishing charter leaving from Durban’s Wilson’s Wharf

The Spirit of eLan is an executive level fishing charter leaving from Durban’s Wilson’s Wharf.  We specialise in fishing excursions in Durban Bay, out to backline, or at deep sea – depending on the weather conditions and the client’s preference.

Charter the Spirit of eLan for an enjoyable and memorable fishing trip challenging enough for seasoned fishermen, or novices who are still honing their skills. An experienced skipper with 28 years of experience and extensive knowledge of local fishing grounds, Gary Stewart, has an excellent record of catches.
