Frostbite Adventures

Frostbite Adventures invites you for an unforgettable fishing adventure in the one and only Bay of Plenty. Captain Darrel Frost prides himself on tailoring every trip to your individual needs, whether you’re a hardcore angler or a complete novice. Just let him know what you’d like to do on the water, and he’ll do his best to make your fishing dreams come true.

His boat is a 26’ McLay vessel that runs on a single 200 HP Yamaha engine and can reach a top speed of 25 knots. There’s plenty of room here for up to 4 people to fish comfortably, so feel free to bring your loved ones along for the ride. She’s got all the necessary safety gear and navigation electronics, so you can look forward to both a safe and productive day on the water.

Capt. Darrel’s specialty is fishing the reef structures around the Bay of Plenty for the likes of Kingfish and Snapper. Come summertime, you’ll also have a chance to after Marlin and Swordfish too! This usually involves fishing at about 12 miles away from the shore, meaning you’ll reach the fishing grounds in about an hour.

You’ll be provided with everything you might need for an exciting day on the water, including all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Not only that but Capt. Darrell will have the catch cleaned after the trip for your convenience. All you need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and get ready to make some memories!

About the Captain

Before entering the fishing business, Capt. Darrel Frost was in the Army. However, fishing was a part of his life for a long time, as his father worked in a local harbor. He doesn't like to brag about his own fishing accomplishments because he believes his guests should always come first. He's more than happy to share the accomplishments of his guests, so feel free to ask him whatever you'd like to know.
