The Hauraki Gulf is waiting to provide you with a fishing experience to remember.

We can help you organise fishing charters for line or big game fishing, combined with family excursions to islands in the gulf, with experienced operators.
Tiri Matangi Island

Tiritiri Matangi ('looking to the wind'or'wind tossing about') lies 4km off the coast of Whangaparaoa Peninsula.

Tiritiri Matangi is a scientific reserve and a sanctuary for rare wildlife. Visitors are welcome but are asked to treat the island with care and respect.

By 1900 centuries of Maori occupation followed by European farming had turned most of Tiritiri into rolling grassland, with only a few pockets of forest remaining.

Now, Tiritiri is being replanted with native trees, both to accelerate the natural regeneration of the coastal forest, and to provide a rich and varied habitat for bird species

diving Goat Island

Goat island is one of New Zealand's most successful marine reserves.

A magical maritime world with fish swimming all around you. Rub noses with Grand-daddy snapper or simply experience the vast array of colourful marine life. You can dive, snorkel or take the glass bottomed boat out and view the marine life "dry"
