Awesome afternoon out fishing at short notice. Tomo was great with my younger brother who is a budding fisherman ;) at 10 years old. We saw albatross and caught 5 family size meals worth of cod, perch and a few other species. Great time on the water. Take kaikoura crackers before you head out if you feel the effects of the sea swell.

The weather gods weren't smiling down on us but Tomo didn't want to disappoint so we tried one area and then a more calmer spot. Unfortunately the 'sea legs' didn't help and the swell got to us a bit. However I saw albatross, seals and some other huge sea birds. Then the fish kept coming up and along with the crayfish, we had tea sorted. After a couple of hours bobbing up and down Tomo saw a storm heading out way and we had a thrilling ride back to port. Totally recommend.

We had a last minute idea to go fishing before leaving Kaikoura and Tomo made it happen! We caught a ton of fish and even a Mako shark. Tomo made it so easy - he cleaned and packaged our fish for us and even threw in some rock lobster as a treat. This is a must do while you are here!

**If you are concerned with sea sickness - swing by the local pharmacy and ask for the Kaikoura Cracker - take an hour before you go.
