About the Charter Operator

Outer Gulf Charters
Leigh, New Zealand
Member since November 2015
Having holidayed in Leigh area since 1975, Brian's passion was anything to do with the sea. He learnt to scuba dive in 1984, and introduced his young family to boating which included diving, fishing and playing in and on the sea. In the year 2000 Brian and his wife Julie left behind City life and pioneered a dive shop servicing famous Goat Island, N.Z's first marine reserve. The business grew and Brian went on to own and operate a charter boat which ferried thousands of divers to unique diving locations, as well as offering great fishing trips to be remembered. He knows Auckland's outer Hauraki Gulf Islands like the back of his hand and still to this day enjoys giving his customers a great day out on the briney.
