We have been on many fishing excursions in NZ and overseas and this was by far the best experience. It's all down to Phil. His passion for fishing and his wonderful personality made the difference. He was so excited for each of us when we landed our fish and he made sure we were taught the skills we needed to... More

There were 6 of us... More

Phil is the best fisherman ever. We spent the day with him and he knows exactly where the fish are. In fact he is so well known in the waters off Waiheke that everytime he stopped somewhere for to drop the line over, all the other boats came around him. After a couple of hours fishing you come back in... More
