Established in Port Alfred (Eastern Cape Province of SA) in 1979, soon after Charles and Lou de Bruin arrived with their young family,
seeking a better quality of life at the coast. Port Alfred is situated in possibly the most
beautiful part of South Africa and has a wonderful climate.
Kowie Marine Services is wholly family-owned and managed - our passion is the sea and we strive to make our customers safe and
happy when they enjoy their craft on our local waterways “Ensuring quality time on the water” has been our motto since day one.
Charles’ has extensive experience in the commercial fishing area and Darren has worked on private yachts in the Mediterranean for a
number of years, and also owned and sailed his own Van der Stadt yacht.
Having said this, we believe that with our 36years experience in the industry we are well-positioned to offer the boating public of the
area a well-balanced service.
