Come and enjoy a fishing trip that will leave a smile on your face with Top Catch Charters. The fishing out of Kaikoura is as excellent as the scenery! Captain Malcolm Halstead is an experienced angler who’ll do his best to make your time on the water exciting and memorable, whatever your skill level.
You’ll be fishing from a comfy 18’ Osprey boat that runs on a 115 HP Yamaha four stroke engine. She can fit up to 6 anglers, with up to 4 fishing at any one time. Snorkeling gear and coolers are provided, so there’s no need to bring your own for the trip. The boat is equipped with everything you’ll need for a safe and productive journey.
There’s a wide variety of fish species for you to go after all throughout the year. Some of these include Grouper, Kahawai, Salmon, Gurnard, Sharks, and many more besides. Depending on what you go after, you can expect these trips to be anywhere within 5 miles of shore.
The price of any given trip includes the use of rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as fish cleaning services after the trip. If you’re up for it, Capt. Malcolm can teach you how to clean the fish on your own. He can even recommend a local restaurant that will cook it. The Top Catch crew look forward to your company on one of their trips!
