Being a top-of-the-line fishing and diving charter operation, Fish n Dips Charters LTD uses different methods to catch big fish. This crew mainly uses lures such as topwater popping, jigging slow jigs, and more. You will not smell like bait all day. The crew is based in Auckland and runs a trailer boat, meaning you can always travel out of Auckland and explore different fishing grounds for different species. Book today and have an experience in New Zealand you’ll never forget.

Your adventure starts on a 28’ custom-built Westcoaster aluminum fishing boat that can accommodate up to 6 guests. It runs on a 300 HP Mercury SeaPro engine and is rigged with GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology for efficient and safe navigation. There’s a portable toilet you can use as well as a toilet. The boat is equipped with various fishing gear and has got an esky.

The choice of fish you can catch is excellent. From various Tuna species, Marlin, Mahi, and Hapuka to Gurnard, John Dory, Snapper, and Australian Salmon – you’ll have a great time chasing these classy fellows. Apart from the already mentioned techniques, you can use light and heavy tackle, bottom bounce, deep sea fish, troll, spin, fly fish, and even spearfish. Make sure to tell the skipper in advance if you’d like to fly fish.

The skipper provides everything you need for a great day on the water. All the gear, bait, snacks, and drinks are included in the price. Lunch and catch cleaning are also available but are charged extra, the price of lunch being 30-35$.

Member since July 2022
The skipper has been fishing and guiding in NZ since he arrived here in 2003 and was amazed by the scenery and volume of fish all around the islands. He has always been passionate about lure fishing and was fortunate enough to meet and help some of the leading lure manufacture in the industry locally and abroad. Since he was hooked up, the skipper has always challenged himself to understand fish better, learn to target as many species as he could on light gear, and improve his angling skills. One of the main reasons he made NZ his home in the last 20 years is the mighty Kingfish, a fish that test your skills to the limit. It can be caught in many ways and is easy to catch and release.
