Fishing Charters – Napier, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

Boat Fishing/Prices

Everybody enjoys getting out on the sea for a bit of fishing. Try your luck catching a big Hawkes Bay Snapper or Hapuka and during the summer Kingfish and Tuna.


We offer 3 different types of boat fishing:

  • Bottom fishing : We anchor the boat over a good fishing spot X and catch fish that feed close to the sea bed in dephts of 15 to 100 metres. Using fresh bait or soft baits. The main target species are snapper, terakihi, garnard, kahawai, kingfish and hapuka. Suits all ages and levels of experience. All fishing gear provided.
  • Sports/game fishing : Our season runs from November to April. All our sports fish are caught using the following methods depending on customers preference soft baiting, jiging, casting poppers, live baiting, saltwater fly and trolling lures/teases, our main target species are Kingifish, Tuna (Albacore, Skipjack and Yellow-fin) Mako/Blue Sharks and the odd Marlin. Some seasons Hawke Bay can produce some spectacular catches of Yellow-Fin Tuna. The 2004/2005 season produced 3 Hawkes Bay Sport Fishing Club records on yellow-fin, the heaviest being 72.8 kg.
  • Saltwater Fly fishing: Cast a fly from the boat into a big work up of kahawai or tuna. Tease up a kingi from the depths.. An absolute blast when hooked up, lots of patience needed. Kingfish, kahawai and Tuna are all very good table fish, so expect to be eating fish for dinner.
