My husband and I went out for a fishing trip with Blue Sea when we were in Paihia on the Christmas holidays. There were a huge choice of fishing charters in Paihia but we booked on Blue Sea Charters as it came highly recommended from our motelier.
We met down at Paihia wharf where the owner Eddie personally greeted us and introduced us to our skipper and the other people on board before we got going, (nice friendly personal touch we thought)
Taking us to various fishing spots we saw so much of the fabulous Bay and the amazing scenery and (to my husbands delight) caught loads of big fish mostly snapper, travally and some kahawai, which was really exciting.
The Skipper was very knowledgable and fun, the boat was clean and comfortable and there was lots of room for everyone on board- we noticed some of the other smaller boats we saw out looked a bit cramped and crowded.
The hi-light for me was not having to bait my own hook with the skipper even filleting and packing up our fish for us at the end for us to cook for our dinner!!
Not being a big fishing fan even I had a great day out and we will definately book with Blue Sea again next time we visit Paihia!
