When you take fishing trips with us, you can board in Tauranga or Mount Maunganui and will be able to purchase rods and bait on the boat. If you would like to bring your own gear, we can make recommendations, depending on the type of trip you book.  

A deposit applies to group bookings and is required when booking has been confirmed. This will be refunded if the trip is cancelled due to the weather or a new date can be made which suits your party. All cancellations are made by the skipper.


Please note, we do not have Eftpos facilities, we take cash, bank transfer and cheques only.
