We went out at 8.30am it was a little choppy to start but soon settled. Very warm welcome from our captain Mark as we boarded. This is the first charter I have been on where I was handed a life jacket to put on (very nice) normally you get told if you want one they are under the seat. We... More

After looking through several trip adviser reports decided to organise a 3-hour fishing trip with Fish Kaikoura with Mark. Excellent service by Mark before and during the trip. Prompt reply to Email queries. We simply turned up on the day and told Mark what we wanted to target. Boat was already in the water and after safety briefing and explanation... More

My in-laws and I went fishing with Mark. It was a great and enjoyable experience. Mark not only set up everything for us, he also explained lots of things about sea fishing. Options were given regarding how fish were to processed and kept. The fish fillets we took home were very well prepared.

Despite of seasickness, our family had a lot of fun going out fishing with Mark. Mark is very knowledgable, honest and friendly. He is very experienced and knows where to get fish. He tried to move us to a calmer area, seeing that we had seasickness. We caught a lot of sea perch, one blue cod, and from Mark's bait... More

We went out with a family group. Everything was wonderful. Mark (the skipper) was flexible and open to tailoring the afternoon to our particular interests, with respect to the type of fishing we wanted to do and viewing wildlife (albatross, seals and even dolphins and whales if you are lucky!). he looked after us well, baiting and filleting the fish,...

The second day we went out unsure of the windy weather and by the time we got our there the wind... More

Had a great day fishing even though it got a little rough later in the day. We came back with a good amount of sea perch and blue cod as well as two big crawfish! Had a great trip out and would definitely recommend!

Ended up going out solo with Mark for a half-day. Within 15 minutes of anchoring I was pulling in my first fish (and Mark was genuinely surprised it had taken so long). Must have caught 10 fish between us. Even saw a seal and plenty of albatross. Would go again and again in a heartbeat.

As part of our travels we really wanted to book ourselves a fishing trip, and after picking up a Fish Kaikoura leaflet and speaking to the DOC visitor centre, we booked a trip with Mark. This turned out to be a cracking choice as Mark was a great skipper and made the trip fun, relaxed and informative. Neither me or... More

Couldn't recommend this highly enough. Mark was a brilliant host for our 3 hour fishing trip. Very knowledgeable, informative and patient. Plus just a really nice genuine guy. Caught many sea perch, blue cod and even barracuda on the trip. By the end we got to keep more than 2kg of fresh fish and 3 large crayfish between 4 of... More
