If you thought New Zealand was all about Striped Marlin, think again. Cruise and Fish Rotorua are here to show you that the country’s freshwater fishing is at least as good as what it has to offer in the ocean.
The guide invites you to join him on board his Kelsall catamaran. She’s a mean fishing machine with a soft, comfortable side to her. You can enjoy the ample seating space and her spacious deck to soak up some rays while you’re getting to your fishing grounds. Take a break from the hook ups inside her cabin or take a dive into the crystal clear waters from her front deck. Thanks to Minn Kota technology, the captain can always hold the boat on the right spot.
The wide deck of the catamaran allows you to chase the bite freely all around the boat. And you’ll want the space to go after the famous Rainbow Trout on Lake Tarawera. These freshwater predators grow large in the lake and you’ll go after them by using spin rods, jigs, or fly fishing. Alternatively, if you want to enjoy the stunning views a bit more, you can troll for them.
The unique offer of Cruise And Fish Rotorua doesn’t end with exciting fishing and comfortable cruising. On the 5-hour trips you can take a dip in the hot water springs of Te Rata Bay. For an extra fee, you can add a BBQ lunch on this trip. Take it one step further and cook your fresh catch in the hot sands of the Bay!
John will provide you with all the tackle required for this freshwater adventure. Light snacks, coffee, and tea are included on all trips.
Surprise your family or friends with an amazing experience in New Zealand. Book a trip with Cruise And Fish Rotorua and make a memory that’ll last you a lifetime!
