Friendly trip to catch mostly Blue Cod and check the cray pots (crayfish included). Great value at $80 (off peak).

We thought we were going on a fishing charter! Whales, seals, dolphins and amazing Albatross. Oh and dont forget the fishing (as much as we could eat) and the Crayfish. Great friendly and helpful staff that did well to take us out with short notice. Thanks Guys for a great day and we rank this as one of the best trips of our holiday.

This fishing charter was beyond our expectations. Highly recommended, it is the best value tour we have had in NZ and Australia.

An awesome experience. Took home a bag of filleted fish plus a 'crayfish'. A good operator and good value for money.

It was a great day out! The scenery was stunning and we saw a whale within the first ten minutes! We caught crayfish, blue cod and sea perch. And we were surrounded by different types of albatross on the entire trip. The whole experience was brilliant!

These guys were great, we caught crayfish, blue cod, and perch and a huge groper and a just about as big trumpeter. They cooked our cray fish for us and gave us a great fun trip. The boat was big and roomy, and the crew really friendly and fun. They really are the A Team, we have fished all over NZ and this has been one of the best with extras. Thanks Vic, Tom and Blackie.
