Should our guests catch a Tuna or a Dorado for example,
they are very welcome to take it back home / hotel for dinner!
We do ethical fishing which means we release rare, extinct, or slow-growing species like billfish (marlin, sailfish, swordfish, shortbill spearfish), sharks, rays, trevally, reef fish.

Should a guest catch one of the mentioned, we will assist the angler
to bring the fish alongside the boat, take a quick picture, and we will safely and quickly release it.

What do our clients say about us
  • Robert Szultc
    Zandré became my friend right after the first trip! He is easy-going, knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and above all that, an amazing host!
    I would definitely recommend fishing with him!
  • Samuel Willson
    Omg that was really fun! I caught my biggest Dorado, five Yellowfins, and it was the greatest time I ever spent in my life! I wouldn't give a second thought to fishing with Beach Bums guys again!
  • Zaco Van Zyl
    South Africa
    There can't be a better place than Africa and Zanzibar for fishing fans like me. Its warm turquoise waters are full of nice species, and Beach Bums Co. knows all around, so be sure they will bust their tail to make you catch your dream fish!
