Tauranga Marine Charters is the brainchild of Captain Brett Keller. A seasoned angler himself, Captain Brett has been fishing for over three decades. His vast experience will be of hand when taking on these feisty and tasty fish.

You will be fishing aboard Manutere, a 44’ custom made boat that can accommodate large groups. Up to 25 anglers can book a day trip, and parties of up to 10 can book some of the longer outings. The boat is rigged with navigational electronics, has a multimedia system, a toilet, and stores life jackets. You will also have at your disposal a first mate.

In terms of the fishing gear—bring your own, or rent it onboard. These are the prices based on the style and technique:
- $25.00 - Bottom Fishing Rod,
- $10.00 - Bait,
- $25.00 - Hapuka Fishing Rod,
- $15.00 - per Trace + $10.00 - Bait.

When packing for the trip, you will want to bring sunblock, a cap, sunnies, comfortable clothes and footwear. You won’t need a fishing license.

So, what about styles and fishing grounds? The deep dwellers are mostly around the beautiful Mayor island (Tuhua). The Moiti island boasts a fine array of shallower waters and is superb for fishing the table fare species.

Choose the package you like, and join Capt. Brett!

Comfortable boat. Both the Skipper and his helper were friendly & obliging.  If I had any suggestions, they would be to update the reels on the hire rods as they are a bit old and stick Alot. Will Definately take my own rods, reels and bait next time. Paid $20 for 2 baits but probably only used 500gms. If the boat is going out to Mayor island, prepare for atleast 4 hours of travel time. Used squid as bait and caught medium sized tarakihi and maomao.. A few of the guys on the trip were regulars and very helpful. Had the best weather for a great day of fishing! Recommend this trip as a good day out!! Will definately go again!  Will not be buying mcds for the next few days… #fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thanks Brett.
