I think the skipper does not know where the fish at.. he said he is been in the business more than 17 years... and 10 of us caught 8 fish for 6hour trip.. its just waste of money and time.. Fishing hour was less than 3hour.. Wasting time on finding spot.. Never recommand to anyone.. If anyone looking for boat... More

I sent 3 messages to Mr Yoon (the reviewer) advising him of this mistake and have got no response, neither has he made an effort to remove the review. In the review he... More

Caught a whack of red snapper along with 2 ocean salmon. Darell did a great job showing me the ropes. Best to fish with at least 4 people to get as much bait in the water to attract as many fish as possible.

Darell did not disappoint again. Was here last year with family and we did 3 charters again. He took us out and moved to ensure we caught our fish which we did. Was very helpful in fishing for kingfish which was extremely enjoyable for all 4 of us. Will return AGAIN next year and call Darell. Have fished charters in... More

I'm a regular client for Darell and have been a loyal customer for about 3 years taking my warehouse crew out on about 10 trips and all outings have been successful. Darell's a fantastic skipper to be on the water with sharing knowledge as well as demonstrating experience and we are constantly leaving with very full chilli bins which makes... More

A group of six if us went out with skipper Darrel on his 9.2m boat LegaSea for a seven hour charter targeting snapper with the hope of the odd kingfish too. Unfortunately the sea conditions were not ideal but Darrel was still able to get us out the back of Waiheke, near the Noises, and put us straight onto fish.... More

My son bought me a gift voucher with Darell on Megebites. I am not a seasoned fisherman and have been out just a few times. Darell really went that extra mile to make all of us comfortable even to the extent of making up our traces. He spent all of his time helping us when we brought up fish. He... More
