Who we are

Aquanaut Tours, Swakopmund

We are based in the coastal town Swakopmund and the owner and guide, Shane Milne, is passionate about the beach and its surroundings. He learned most of what he knows hands-on by spending time investigating rock-pools and its creatures, constantly and keenly observing bird and marine life on the shore as well as learning to dive and fish from a young age.

Shane has had a keen interest in fishing since the age of 7 when he caught his first fish on rock & surf equipment. His passion for catching sharks started when he reeled in his first one at the age of 12. From there he joined a local angling club and started competitive angling at the age of 13. After 2 years of competitive angling he qualified to represent the South West African (now Namibia) junior team for Rock & Surf angling at an international competition in East London, South Africa. Some years later he represented Namibia in Light-tackle Boat fishing, once in Kariba, Zimbabwe, and later again at Hardap Dam in Namibia. Since then he has been a guide for the Namibian and South African top teams on several occasions for Rock & Surf as well as Boat angling. In December 2016 Shane successfully guided the Namibian Rock & Surf Masters to win Gold in their division.

Shane has competitive experience in Rock & Surf, Light-tackle Boat, Deep Sea, Bottom Fishing and Fresh Water (river & dam) angling. He shares his passion for angling with others by doing guided angling tours.
