Hermanus, with its expansive coastline, the estuaries and rivers, is a fisherman’s dream. Fishermen from all over the country are attracted by the rock angling possibilities on our coastline where the waters offer galjoen, cob, red roman, steenbras and many more fish. The bay offers surf fishing as well as chartered deep sea fishing trips which are very popular.

The coastline from Rietfontein to Kraal Rock is a marine reserve and although angling is allowed, nothing else may be removed from the sea or rocks in this area including bait. Fishermen can also enjoy fishing in the Klein River and Bot River estuaries. A brochure containing all the rules and regulations can be colleted at the Marine and Coastal Management office in the New Harbour. Fishing permits can be obtained from the local post office at a prescribed fee.

Fly fishing is becoming increasingly popular in the area. There are four dams in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley where members of the Hermanus Fly-fishing Club cast their flies.

A diving permit obtainable from the local post office entitles you to four crayfish per person per day during the season which opens on 1 November and closes on 28 February. Crayfish may be caught daily from 08h00 to 16h00 up to 31 December and thereafter only on weekends and public holidays. There is a size restriction on the crayfish and it is advisable to obtain a measuring ring before you dive. Various restrictions exist for the transportation of the crayfish.
