Outer Gulf Charters - Apollo

1 Hauraki Road
Leigh, New Zealand

Outer Gulf Charters runs fishing trips around Auckland’s outer Hauraki Gulf islands. If you want a fast, comfortable ride on a wide open covered wet deck for you and your party, you’ve come to the right place. And even better, here you wind fish a variety of fish. Target species include Snapper, Kingfish, Hapuka, John Dory, Trevally, Terakihi, Kahawai, Gurnard and more.

You will be fishing from Apollo, a 42’ Hampton Yachts Perth Australia aluminum fishing boat. Apollo is powered by two 300 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. The vessel features a spacious deck where up to 12 anglers can fish at same time.

Apollo is fitted with GPS, a fishfinder, has a toilet, and stores the safety equipment. It’s great for corporate events, team building, Christmas celebration or just a group of friends wanting to have a blast!

You can opt to fish around Leigh’s local coast, Kawau Bay, Little and Great Barrier Islands, Hen and Chicken group, and Mokohinaus. You can book a multiday trip and stay overnight at Great Barrier or overnight at Leigh and travel to two destinations each day.

Skipper Brian and local fishing aficionado deckhand Grant will welcome you onboard. Together they have over 30 years of experience fishing the Hauraki Gulf Islands.
They will take you around the local waters in quest of the local fine fish.

The trip rates include all charter boat costs, tea and coffee facilities, salt ice and plastic bags for your catch. A BBQ is available on request, there is a two burner stove-top onboard. Bait, rod hire and tackle can be arranged at a low cost, or you can bring your own gear. When packing for the trip, make sure to bring sunnies, a cap, sunblock, and comfortable clothes.

About the Charter Operator

Captain Brian loves anything to do with the sea. First he learnt how to scuba dive and introduced his young family to boating. This meant diving, fishing, and genuinely spending time in and on the sea. Brian and his wife Julie moved from the city in 2000 and opened the first dive shop that serviced the well-known Goat Island, the first marine reserve in New Zealand. As the business expanded, Brian went out to start charter business, ferrying thousands of divers to numerous locations, and running memorable fishing trips. He knows the waters of Hauraki Gulf intimately and enjoys having people over for a nice time out on the water.
