AFO can offer you different options to suit your needs, short land based accommodation trips to week or longer mothership excursions. 
Much of the Cape is very inaccessible by land so a mothership is a very good option if you wish to fish many of the untouched areas.

The mothership season runs from March through to December, travelling along the coast there are endless fishing opportunities. Walking the beaches and flats casting to sighted fish of numerous species, charging offshore casting to schools of crashing pelagics.
