Fish Kaikoura runs through out the year and caters for smaller groups between 2 & 6 people, providing a more personal touch.We launch from South Bay Marina (Moa Road)so we can have you fishing Blue Cod & other species of fish within minutes of leaving the shore. We will show you how to catch a delicious Crayfish before heading to our bountiful fishing grounds. If you don't catch any fish we will refund you in full!

I booked this for a birthday gift for my partner and his friend. They had the best time and I have never heard him rave so much about anything. Came home with so much fresh fish and some crayfish. We will definitely come again- you can see why your reviews are so good

My captain is called Mark, was very welcoming New Zealander, and his assistant "Greek"(not sure how to spell his name) was also knowledgeable. Thank you, you gave me positive affects about Kaikoura, NZ.

The most pleasing part of the morning was being with... More

This is such a memorable experience to fish with Mark and Greg. They are really professional and takes a lot of time to explain the NZ fishing laws, how to bait up the crayfish pots, the birds. They helped with everything - baiting the hooks, cleaning and filleting fish. We enjoyed fresh fish for the next 2 days. And Mark... More

Went fishing with my family of four in the morning around 9.30, my drive from Christchurch took about 2.5 hrs. The trip is 3 hours and Mark, Peter and Greg were our guide. They are friendly and professional. My kids and wife have fun fishing. Unfortunately, my sea sickness kicks in almost when we anchored and started fishing. Was vomiting... More

How many times will a fishing guide take you fishing and also check his lobster traps? This was my first! The guide cooked several lobsters for us and gave us 4 - 6 to take home. In NZ a lobster costs about around $98 at a restaurant so the free lobsters provided were a bonus. Also, the cost of the... More

We met with the owner Mark bang on time and he kitted us out with Life jackets and gave a good safety briefing. The fishing was excellent and his commentary very informative. There was 6 of us and Mark the skipper. Once fishing we kept him pretty busy filleting and baiting. We have just had a feed of the fish... More

I booked a 3 hour trip for myself, my husband and our 2 boys, aged 10 and 12. When we arrived at the boat Mark took the time to introduce himself to us all individually, and immediately came across as a really good guy who was keen to make our fishing adventure one we would remember. We were lucky enough... More

Whatever reason takes you to Kaikoura there are a multitude of things to excite you. One of the most stunning times to visit is in the winter on a sunny day. You can then absorb the beauty of this amazing lanodscape. Either sitting on the edge of the bay or viewing from a fishing boat you will be amazed at... More
