Lakeland Princess Charters

Lakeland Princess Charters welcomes you to Rotorua in New Zealand. The area’s alluring nature and productive lakes guarantee you a memorable fishing experience. You can have picnic cruises as well as trips where you can catch your own lunch. Skipper Tom Mayne will make sure you have a lovely stay on the water as well as land a fine catch. Take your family and mates, discuss with the skipper how you’d like your trip, and embark on the adventure!

You’ll start on a 28’ Orca pontoon boat which can sit up to 10 fishos. It’s powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and uses quality GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology. The boat’s got a toilet, is equipped with downriggers, and there’s an esky as well to store your fish and drinks.

The Rotorua area offers you plenty of chance to reel in the lovely local species, Rainbow and Brown Trout. You’ll be trolling for them, using light tackle. You’re welcome to bring any kids on your trip and you can choose whether you’ll keep or release your catch. Also, alcohol isn’t allowed during the trip.

Skipper Tom will cover you for all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need, and he’ll clean and fillet your catch as well. As for food, he’ll supply you with some nibble food and drinks. On picnic cruises and trips where you catch your own lunch, you can eat what you reel in. You’ll only need your fishing licenses before you depart.

Join Lakeland Princess Charters and have a beautiful day of lake fishing.
