My two oldest boys and i decided we needed to do a bit of fishing while in Franz Joseph recently. We found these guys online and booked an afternoon on Lake Mapourika. Very easy company to deal with from minute one. Our skipper Jake had an excellent local knowledge and was

I had such an amazing time on this boat trip. Dale is so welcoming and knowledgeable, as much coffee and hot chocolate as I wanted which was a bonus. The scenes were stunning even though we were clouded over, it was the information and the serenity of the lake that really made

The rain made fishing pointless. Would have been nice to have an option to reschedule or do just a scenic cruise. But it was fun. With young kids they should have a second guide to help them fish as the skipper can’t help. Thankfully another guy was there to fish and helped

Hi Susan, Thank you for you review. I was glad to hear that one of your boys caught a fish! The rain can sometime improve the fishing but can make navigating and driving the boat a little more demanding requiring the skippers attention. In terms of rescheduling, we did reschedule your tour for you several times to assist with your plans, so I am disappointed to hear that this was something that took away from your tour with us. I hope you have more luck on your next fishing adventure and safe travels. Regards, Dale
