There is no greater thrill than pitching your bait to a fired-up Blue Marlin coming in hot .

Welcome to Ryan Williamson Marlin Charters .

Our Fishing Locations

We have been fishing in Cape Verde Islands and Sodwana Bay for many years. Armed with local knowledge and years of experience, we can guide you to some of the best fishing spots in these locations.



On a recent marlin competition at Struisbaai on the East Coast of South Africa, I accompanied Captain Ryan Williamson, on the boat, "Titan". To watch Ryan live baiting and sewing up baits was phenomenal. He was quick, like a true professional. Watching him leader the fish, no fear, and no letting go, unbelievable and the fish were strong. Out of 30 boats, we won the competition with 2 x black marlin safely released (only five were caught, and we got two of them!). I can recommend Captain Ryan to anyone who wants to catch a bill fish. You will not be disappointed.



I had the pleasure to fish with Captain Ryan Williamson at Cape Verde last season, “Wow”, what can I say, a fish a day and sometimes more. I hooked a personal best, a fish estimated at 750lbs plus, on a pitch bait. Captain Ryan at the helm, and the crew responding to his instructions, was an experience I will never forget. I will be booking again for the 2021 season.



My name is Frans Erbhardt from Germany. My son Siegfried and I fished with Captain Ryan in Cape Verde last year. The first day, my son released a fish in excess of 800lb, his first marlin. An hour later I released a fish of approx 450lbs. Both fish were taken on pitch baits and I must congratulate Captain Ryan for handling the boat the way he did, reversing up when necessary, and handling it like he was born to do this.

His young crew, the man from Tobago, I forget his name, leaded the fish and released it near the boat. These men have nerves of steel, handling a huge fish alongside the boat, Captain Ryan right by his side. We fished there for a week and release another 6 fish, I can highly recommend this professional outfit.
