Your guide will offer expert local fishing knowledge for the discerning angler and patient tuition for the novice to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to land their catch.

The majority of the fish caught in the Bay of Islands are blue cod, terakihi, trevally and snapper.

All gear, including bait and tackle, is supplied.


A catch is not guaranteed. Fish that have been caught cannot be stored on board the cruise ship; they will be kept by the fishing boat crew. Minimum age is 8 years. To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please ensure that you wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, layered clothing suited to the weather conditions (it is always cooler on the water than on land). Bring a hat, jacket, sunscreen and bottled water.
