Overview

At five and a half hours this trip is the best value in the Bay of Islands. Our boat is a 43ft wooden character launch, the ideal fishing platform for individuals, groups and families with a good combination of shelter and open deck space. The Skipper has 49 years experience in charter boats and is the areas longest serving fishing skipper. Owner on-board to ensure a memorable trip.

Thanks for your review (I'm not allowed to mention reviewers names.) I wish that we could've produced better fish but not even Terry's magic touch can produce hordes of big hungry Snapper every time. I'm glad that you appreciate our efforts though. It was a...More
