We had a great time out fishing on Mark's boat. Particularly liked the fact that he takes smaller groups and even with 6 on board plus Mark, there's plenty of space for everyone. Really fascinating seeing the craypots and taking part in winching them up and seeing how it's determined what can be kept or thrown back to get bigger!... More

我7月份去参加的Mark的Fish Charter,至今真的很高兴做出了正确的选择!在我14天的行程里,这个给我印象最深。Mark人很好很幽默,更别提我们捕到了龙虾和1条4公斤重的Tuna。在Kaikoura的3天里,参加这个海钓活动是让我最开心的,比出海看鲸鱼好多了。说了要给照片给他,结果后面考虑到肖像权的问题又没给,觉得很对不住。半个月后又要去Kaikoura, 有点想再去!Thanks Mark very much, it was really a great day!

We went out with Mark yesterday on a three hours fishing trip. We got a couple of crays for each one and nice tasty deep sea perches. We had an absolute awesome day, not only regarding the catches. We saw a couple of dolphins which were curious about us and swimming in circles around the boat all the time and... More

I have to say thanks to Mark who was helpful in guiding us to fish. Only two of us went for fishing, however, he didnt hesitate to launch his ship to the sea. The sea was bumpy which made us feel seasick. However, we still caught a baby shark and some types of fishes and lots of gray fishes. Thanks... More

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,...
