Kaikoura Fishing Trips
We cater for the expert fisherman to the novice with all training provided and gear supplied.
All fish is filleted ready for cooking or if preferred catch and release. We are about preservation of the fisheries and give all fish that are too small or breeding stock back to the sea so fish stocks continue to be plentiful.
During the trip we can describe the sea birds and their habitat, also whales and dolphins are not an uncommon sight while fishing.
However we won't tell you too much more because words and pictures cannot describe Kaikoura and the surrounding areas well enough, you will have to come and see for yourself just how amazing the place really is.
See you in Kaikoura! more info click here
