Overview

Fish Kaikoura runs through out the year and caters for smaller groups between 2 & 6 people, providing a more personal touch.We launch from South Bay Marina (Moa Road)so we can have you fishing Blue Cod & other species of fish within minutes of leaving the shore. We will show you how to catch a delicious Crayfish before heading to our bountiful fishing grounds. If you don't catch any fish we will refund you in full!

Had a great morning fishing trip with Mark and Peter. They were great company, very knowledgable, and knew the spots for some great fishing and crays. Would definitely recommend this charter company and I look forward to going out again next time.
