We can tailor your trip entirely including transfers, accomodation and external tours so all you need to do is kick back and enjoy the ride. We currently have three multi-purpose luxury game boats in our fleet as well as a stunningly appointed 114ft mother ship. Our vessels can be mixed and matched to suit your charter requirements.

Perhaps some popper fishing on the reef’s edge in the morning, trolling the ocean depths over lunch and finishing off the day with a snorkel on the reef to get up close and personal with the creatures that lie beneath? We are here to make your trip unforgettable.

Zulu can accommodate up to seven guests on day trips and up to four guests for multi-day charters. All charters are fully catered for including refreshments and all bait and tackle.

We cater for private day charters and extended live-aboard trips. Our most popular charter option is private trips for up to four anglers over a 3-8 day trip. Contact us to start planning your trip now!
