“Magic Day on the Water!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We booked a half day fishing tour with Tomo from Kaikoura Fishing Tours and had a fantastic day. The weather was perfect and Tomo was just awesome! He was helpful, informative and he even cooked us up some freshly caught Lobster on the boat (Delicious!!). We also caught heaps of fish which he then filleted and bagged up for us to take back and cook up for lunch. We saw lots of Albatross and other sea birds and even the odd seal - it truly was a great day out on the water for the family. Tomo was so nice he even gave us a $100 meal voucher to use at a local cafe when he needed to change our booking time - we didn't have to change our booking in the end but he wanted us to have the voucher anyway! Thank you so much Tomo! We would definitely recommend Tomo and his boat, if you want someone who knows the area well and is passionate about fishing!!

“Fantastic fishing!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

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.

“Thrilling experience”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.
