We discovered the flying boat after our visit last year and are there again twice this year. Great fresh food and right next door to the Fishing club that have great happy hours and sports games on the big screen.

Grab a happy hour beer from the Fishing Club, check out the sunset over the ocean and order the most delicious fish and chips which will be delivered to your picnic table, cheap and tasty on the beach.

We stopped here often. The Fishing Club behind the Flying... More

Stopped here for lunch - nice and sheltered compared to the windy southern side of the island. Nice lunch with a fantastic view - one of our group even spotted a whale which was very lucky.

Cook Island Game Fishing Club hosted my father in law for his stag night. We all ordered our food from the Flying Boat Fish n Chips and we were not disappointed. Quick service, they even delivered them to us. Great tasting fish n Chips and good sized burgers. Good adults and children.
