Santa Maria

The Santa Maria Peninsula stretches north of the Kosi Bay/Mozambique border hugging the eastern edge of the Maputo harbour through the Elephant Reserve past the Santa Maria town and up to the infamous area known as “Hells Gate”. Hells Gate is the channel which flows between the northern most tip of the Santa Maria peninsula and the well known Inhaca Island in the southern part of Mozambique.


On our first trip to Hells Gate the TEAM was taught a grueling lesson in respect. The local giants in which who’s territory we were intruding did not take to the challenge lightly. After having being smoked on a number of occasions with reels emptied and hearts broken we had to rethink the game plan.

Rock and Surf fishing here is BRILLIANT with Giant Kingfish, monstrous Sharks and unspoilt beaches with scattered reef and sandy drop-offs that all create a diverse environment to keep even the most experienced angler entertained and the novice intrigued.

With tropical deep water reefs so close, off-shore fishing here is amazing, vertical jigging, drop-shotting and more. The abundance of life on these healthy reefs is world class so be prepared, get some ATTITUDE and bring some BACKBONE we will supply the equipment and you will be put to the test.

In this game NO PAIN equals NO GAIN…

Our Hells Gate package has the perfect balance of rock and surf fishing complimented by exciting deep-sea adventures to ensure you, our respected client, experience all the magic that is Santa Maria.
