Ultimate Charters - Te Ariki Nui

Ultimate Charters is here to offer you the ultimate fishing adventure! Chase the world record sized fish with an experienced crew. Whether you join for just a few hours or decide to take a multiday trip, you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride of a spacious boat. You don’t need to be an experienced angler to take one of these trips. Get your hands-on fishing experience and master the techniques of the offshore spots.

Te Ariki Nui is a superb sports fishing boat. She is one of a few boats licenced to take charters all around the country including the Three King Islands. She’s a 54’ offshore boat that accommodates up to 20 guests on daily trips, while there’s enough room for 6 guests on mulriday trips.

The boat has a high tuna tower, which makes it easier to spot pelagic species in the depths. She’s also powered by twin 320 HP Caterpillar engines and features modern navigational electronics.

Te Ariki Nui is berthed in Whangaroa from 1st February to 31st October. She then moves back down to Westhaven Marina, Auckland from 1st November to 31st January, providing corporate day trips and party charters for groups of up to 20 people around the beautiful Hauraki Gulf over the Christmas and Summer period.

Some of the fish you can target on these trips are Bluenose, Marlin, Swordfish, Hapuka, Kingfish, Bass, NZ Giant Trevally, and many more. You can rent fishing equipment by the crew and also order meals from them.

Join a skilled team of fishing experts which make this charter outstanding for all types of sports fishing. Ultimate Charters is proud to say that this boat has earned many anglers’ “Fish of a Lifetime” title.
