Westcoast Charters - Felix

29 Inlet View
Porirua, New Zealand

Westcoast Charters runs fishing trips from Titahi Bay, Wellington, New Zealand. These fisheries are home to fish big and small. Whether it’s Snapper, Tarakihi, Groper, Kahawai, Kingfish, Albacore Tuna, and bigger fish, here you can find it. Of course, the season and the weather dictate what you might get, but Captain Neil is a safe bet.

Neil has been fishing the local waters for three decades and he knows how and when the fish move. He will work hard to put you on fish. In his own words, ‘Sometimes it is easy, other times they are off, but we often will still get a few when others fail.’

Westcoast Charters offer a variety of packages. Depending on your schedule, skills or passion, you can opt for shorter or full day trips. If you’re coming with kids, it might be good to start with a short outing, and see how they like it.

Captain Neil will accommodate you aboard his 20’ aluminum outboard motor powered catamaran - Felix. Felix is plain but fast and functional. Up to 5 guests can come along. Felix is powered by two 90 HP Yamaha engines and can reach the speeds of up to 30 knots. The vessel is fitted with GPS and Furuno color fishfinder, features multiple rod holders, has a hard top half cabin, comfortable seating, a portable toilet, and clear deck.

You will mainly engage in bottom fishing and look for eating fish so that you can get yourself a tasty meal. Given its speed, Felix can take you around multiple hot spots and you will have more time to enjoy fishing.

If you are not so much into serious fishing, Neil can take you down the coast to combine fishing, diving, snorkeling or heading ashore on a calm day. When you come onboard, Neil will provide basic bottom fishing gear, some lures, and jigs. If you’re really into lure fishing, it’s best to bring along your own.

Pack food and refreshments, sunblock, sunnies, a cap, and comfortable clothes and footwear convenient for the weather. You will definitely want to bring a camera. Grab your backpack and come along!

About the Captain

Neil Palfreyman
Porirua, New Zealand
Member since October 2014
I love the freedom of the open water, a bit like riding a bike. I became a fisherman because I love challenges and being independent, I passionately don't like captivity and some workplace cultures. I have a trades background and can turn my hand to a lot of things. I like scuba and fee-diving more than fishing but save those for my hobbies.
