May Marie Charters
At May Marie Charters, they love taking guests out for an awesome day charter fishing in the Bay of Islands! No matter what your expectations are, the crew will work hard every time to exceed them and make this trip an adventure you’ll never forget. Skipper Dave is known for his enthusiasm, experience, and excellent fishing skills.
You’ll be fishing on a 44’ McManaway boat, named May Marie. This spacious vessel accommodates up to 14 anglers for Snapper fishing or 6 anglers for Kingfish trips. May Marie offers a comfortable ride, even on rougher days, as she’s super stable. There’s plenty of shade to get out of the sun, a closed cabin area, and the kettle will be on if you would like to make a cuppa.
The Bay of Islands is simply beautiful and the scenery as we head to our secret spots won’t disappoint. The friendly crew will welcome you on board, bait your hook and entertain you with a yarn or two. Choose between shared charters targeting Snapper or Kingfish, or private ones that can be tailored to your needs.
At the end of the day, the crew will fillet your catch and make it ready to take home with you. They provide all fishing equipment, tea/coffee/water, and you’re most welcome to bring snacks, lunch, or other beverages. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license.
Children are welcome on board too and kids 4-11 years fish for free (one per paying adult). Join May Marie Charters for an epic day out fishing in the beautiful Bay of Islands!
