On board, we have Northlander Jeff Crooks, an experienced Skipper who holds an Inshore Launch Masters Certificate (ILM). Jeff lives and breathes the sea and his passion is in fish finding and teaching young and old, how to catch the big one! He is great at making everyone on board feel comfortable, safe and at ensuring they have a good time. Jeff spent his first 40 years in Northland, teaching kids on the sea, and became the Sailing Master of the Bay of Islands Yacht Club for several years along with his professional career. We warmly welcome Jeff and his family back home after 7 years Charter Fishing in the Hauraki Gulf.

Too much bad language from Captain and he was more interested in his own fishing.

Fishing was great but would have liked to have caught more variety and larger fish. I am still planning to book again before I go home
