A definite highlight was eating our catch, which Davy BBQ'd for us on board the boat. If you... More

We contacted Davy the night before and were delighted that he agreed to take just the two of us for a half-day adventure around the lake. We enjoyed the beauty of the lake from the water, landed on an uninhabited island and thoroughly enjoyed home-made muffins and tea in the middle of Lake Wanaka. If I had been a millionaire... More

Davy is a legend. This fishing trip rates as one of the best we've had and it was all down to Davy (and his wife's great chocky muffins). I really appreciated how much he loved his job and while we trolled Davy had cracker banter. We simply had a blast AND we both hooked fish. Thanks Davy, beaut way to... More

A memorable day on Lake Wanaka. Davy is a perfect guide. He knows the lake well, and the best spots to fish. We landed some very nice browns, and a big rainbow that put on a good show. Davy grilled up one of the browns right on the boat for lunch, which tasted fantastic. It was even better with some... More

We booked at the last minute as our expedition to Milford Sound was cancelled due to the weather. Davy took us out on his boat, for a scenic 2 hour cruise. He was informative and very friendly. My husband is disabled, but we managed to board the boat with ease and he was very comfortable on the boat. Lake Wanaka... More
