Savoy Charters

Get the ultimate fishing experience with Savoy Charters! You’ll have a chance to join a team of passionate and knowledgeable fishing experts, who’ve dedicated their time to this sport and perfected their ways. Based in the Hauraki Gulf, they can take you fishing any time of the year.

Fish aboard Savoy X, a 24’ Tristram offshore boat. You may recognize it from the Big Angry Fish TV show, that Capt. Dan hosted. Savoy Charters are very excited to have the opportunity to add this fishing machine to their fleet and to take serious fishing experiences to the next level. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine and there’s enough room for 5 guests.

The crew can adjust their trips to all skill levels. If you’ve never fished before but always wanted to learn how – now is the time. They’ll show you the basics, such as which gear to use and how, advise which fish species are common in these waters and what’s the best way to catch them.

Are you up for an unusual fishing trip? Try Work Up trip. What happens here is that schools of pilchards get attacked from the air by flocks of hungry birds. This creates a visual spectacle and, most importantly, a feeding frenzy for larger fish, such as Snapper and Kingfish (Yellowtail Amberjack).

Your fishing equipment is fully covered, so you only need to bring snacks and drinks.

Join Savoy Charters and take a trip of a lifetime!

Savoy Charters has several captains in charge of their fishing trips, each one a legend in their own way. Captain Dan (aka The Fish Freak) is well-known in Auckland. He's been fishing for a long time and he tends to attract the younger audience to the world of fishing. Captain Nathan O'Hearn is also a celebrity. He's a former presenter of a show called "Big Angry Fish". Clients might go on a trip with either one of them.
