Kaikoura is well known to be one of the best fishing spots in New Zealand not only for sports & hobby fisherman but also for commercial fishing.

The Owner and Skipper is Peter Cleall who has been commercial fishing in this area for the past twenty years and has a vast knowledge of the local area and fishing spots. He has been a charter operator for over 4 years, using his commercial fishing expertise to guide him to some of the best fishing spots in New Zealand. Having also fished a large amount of the West Coast of New Zealand, he has a vast knowledge of fish species and their habits, for everything from crayfish to tuna.
During the day there will be plenty of fishing at one or more fishing spots that are chosen based on expert knowledge of the Kaikoura area, and the abundant fish species.
Kaikoura is well known as the home of crayfish, and no charter would be complete without lifting a couple of pots.
