Audacious Inc Limited

Grasp the beauty of the Hauraki Gulf and the Bay of Islands! Audacious Inc Limited is based in Auckland and can quickly reach these mesmerising fishing spots. They can easily accommodate larger groups, whether it’s a family gathering, team building, or friendly reunion.

The boat ‘Audacious’ is the crew’s pride and joy. She’s a 48’ Scott Robson flybridge, purchased in January 2017. She was out of the water for 11 months, with lots of hard work, funds, and care invested in her restoration, so she can be on top of her game.

The boat is fast for a big boat, with an average speed of 178 knots, and a stable fishing platform. There’s enough room for 10 guests during day trips, while overnight trips can accommodate up to 6 guests. The boat has a private bathroom with a shower, a fully functional kitchen, a bedroom, and a fighting chair for the most vigorous of fishing duels.

Fishing is available year round but what you’ll be catching depends on the package you choose. A multi-day trip will take you chasing Kingfish, big Snapper, Grouper, and Blue Nose. Captain Matt Keeton and his crew are familiar with the area, particularly the north, which includes the Bay of Islands and Tutakaka. Targeting Pink Snapper, Hapuka, and Kingfish (Yellowtail Amberjack) is guaranteed fun! You might also catch sight of whales and sea birds, including the Pacific’s blue penguins.

Rods, bait, and tackle cost $23 per person. Berley and ice cost $60. There are some snacks and fresh water on the boat but you should bring your own food and beverages.

With an array of islands and a sheltered haven to explore, this is the perfect opportunity to relax and land that big one. Book your spot with Audacious and enjoy!

I've been fishing from 6 years of age and became a commercial fisherman at 19 for 3 years. I returned to the sea over 15 years ago. This is my 2nd charter launch in Auckland! I love the sea and fishing on the water. I always try to ensure everyone has a great time and catches some fish. The weather has to play its part to maximize time spent on the water. We love to catch Snapper firstly but if enough time will chase Kingfish (Yellowtail Amberjack) also.
