What To Expect

Take a scenic drive from Christchurch to Kaikoura, a charming coastal town on the South Island of New Zealand. Famous for its abundant wildlife and rich sea resources, Kaikoura is a choice destination for those looking for an excellent fishing experience. When you get to the meet up point at South Bay Fishing Charters, you'll meet Captain Ian who will guide you through your fishing journey. Hop aboard the boat from the South Bay marina and travel for 10 minutes to the fishing grounds. On the way there, don’t forget to take a look at the crayfish pots and see if you've caught any lobsters while the captain tells you all about this famous Kaikoura delicacy. Whether you're a first time fisher or skilled with the rod, you'll definitely enjoy an effortless fishing experience when you use the electric reels designed for your comfort and safety. Be ready to snap some photos - you're sure to be joined by some seabirds during your trip. At the end of your trip, you can choose to either release your catch back into the ocean or have one filleted and bagged, ready for you to take home, cook and enjoy.

    A very worthwhile event, the captain is very good and can finally take away the fish and lobster. Although the automatic fishing rod is a bit boring, it quickly catches a lot of fish.

    The first time I used Klook to order the itinerary, I still haven't received the certificate for more than 24hr. It seems to be a supplier's problem, but Klook didn't take the initiative to inform me that I have always confirmed that the captain is very good, but it may be very easy because of the wave of the day. Seasickness

    Very good activity! Captain Ian is super good! Fishing is very easy, even novices like me can fish. In addition, each person can share the fish equally. Very satisfied!

    Very fun, the lobster has a lot of harvest and will be divided equally with the group members on board. Fishing is also very easy to get started, and novices will soon catch fish. Captain Ian is also very helpful and has learned a lot from maritime knowledge. All in all, this experience is quite memorable and interesting.

    Captain will take you to experience the fishing lobster fishing time, as much as possible to find dolphins, seals, albatrosses and whales. Only whales did not come across this event, and the rest was lucky to finish. After the activity, the captain will also handle the lobster and fish which are collected today and give it to everyone.
