The food is good and plentiful. A typical menu can be supplied for approval if required. The price does not include the catering cost which is calculated based on the angler/guest numbers. That cost is $45 per person per day. Fish filleting is included in the hire cost. Any special preparation for shipping by air etc is done at cost The smoking and shipping of a Marlin or other fish you catch can be arranged if requested. This is done at cost Overseas guests can request an airport to airport service if they wish, or we can assist in planning any further travel you want to do whilst in New Zealand. If you are visiting from overseas as a once in a lifetime fishing trip we would suggest a 7 to 10 day trip if your budget allows. We can then take you to some truly wild and remote places These trips to remote destinations are part fishing trips and part adventure. We will fish as hard as you can handle, or you can ask to relax in some beautiful secluded bay to swim on a deserted beach. Each day we make a new plan to suit your requests. Fishing in the areas we travel to is fantastic. Local Kiwis can catch that XOS PB Snapper, a huge Hapuka, or their first ever Marlin. Overseas visitors might like to target New Zealand's record sized Yellowtail Kingfish as well as the largest Striped Marlin they will likely ever catch. No matter what the target is you will be catching it in absolutely stunning surroundings,
