It’s one of the greatest fishing experiences in the world…the thrill and the epic battle of a mere man against a striped marlin. It’s something to tell as a fireside tale for years to come; a family legend in the making; a memory to treasure from your North Coast holiday. Around you swells the rush and murmur of the warm Indian Ocean, a few kilometres away shimmers the lush subtropical vegetation of the Blythedale Beach shoreline.
When you booked your holiday accommodation on the North Coast, known poetically as the Dolphin Coast, you never dreamed that you’d be able to fulfill a lifelong passion, a long-harboured dream of your own…being able to pit your wits and strength against one of the greatest fish in the ocean, the marlin.
Yet marlin fishing isn’t the sole domain of international jetsetters or gung-ho TV stars looking for the ultimate ‘passport to pleasure’…Marlin fishing is possible just minutes from your beach house at Dirty Harry Fishing Charter. Our guests can choose whether to launch close to the cottages, near the Ballito sea, or from the port city of Durban, which is also nearby.
Imagine taking on a beast the size of a sports car, a thrashing, leaping creature from the depths. A magnificent monster with eyes so large you can see them from the boat as it takes on the challenge of the rod and the line – and you. The lithe prime predator of the seas against a land-living mortal. The ultimate sport fish against a puny human adversary
This might just be the greatest, most memorable day of your life. You’ll rest easy when you return to your comfortable cottage. One thing is for certain – you will never, ever forget the holiday you had on the KZN north coast, no matter who wins the battle
