Come deep sea fishing with our friendly crew in the rich waters of Kaikoura. With stunning views of the Kaikoura coast, mountain ranges and the abundance of fish and wildlife, it truly comes together for an amazing experience. We cater for the novice to the expert fisherman, with all training provided and gear supplied.

The boat we use is the "Takapu" a 40 foot Sea truck powered by a 600 horsepower Yanmar twin turbo engine. The dimensions are 3.4 metres across the beam and 12.6 metres in length. The crew onboard will fillet the fish once caught and then put them on ice so they are ready to go once your back on shore.

Our boat is skippered by a lifelong fisherman who is passionate about ensuring every trip is enjoyable and safe for those aboard. His knowledge of the area is in depth and his ability to find spots where fish are in abundance is second-to-none.

We also have specialised equipment that allows those with physical disabilities to enjoy being out fishing in the wonderful Kaikoura region.
