The best thing we did in Paihia! Not only did our skipper Jeff take us to a great spot where we were reeling in snapper all afternoon, he was a great laugh and made the trip for us.

We went for just a morning trip and caught plenty of snapper until we reached the quota. Jeff was a great skipper 👍

Great 4 hour fishing trip. Picked up from our camp site and taken to the boat for 9am start. Fast boat, good equipment and bait supplied. Skipper very helpful.

We had a nice fishing trip the other day with a really enjoyable captain. Neither of us have a lot of fishing experience but enjoyed an afternoon at the sea. The boat was fairly small and not very comfortable but the atmosphere and attitude was great. We ended up with seven keepers in the end of the day and had... More

Really enjoyed this trip. Ive never fished before and am a complete novice but the skipper was very friendly and helpful without ever getting agitated that I hardly knew one end of the rod from the other! He moved us to different spots to ensure we caught a decent level of fish. The views were amazing and to top it... More

From the first point of contact with Wendy by phone this was an awesome experience. My partner and I booked a morning charter on Saturday 9 till 1pm the conditions we were told were a little challenging but their skipper was great and would see to it that we had fun. We jumped on and met Craig the skipper and... More

It was a brilliant sunshine day but unfortunately the fish did not come out to play. Had a great time despite catching only undersized snapper and kingfisher. Skipper was friendly and boat fantastic.

We started at 14:00 in Paihia and the first spot we watched some little snappers but all well under the legal size. The captain was friendly but he tried to catch a Kingfish with the live bait only by himself and didn't let the clients try to do that. After he catches two Kingfish under the legal size the live...

Our day was rough in respect of 2 meter seas, however we all enjoyed the challenge, even the hound Dr who insisted on supplying Berley for bait for a good part of the trip. The day was made by our young Maori skipper called Sam who was easy going, whilst being knowledgable and extremely approachable. Our catch rate was steady... More
