About the Charter Operator

Outer Gulf Charters
Leigh, New Zealand
Member since November 2015
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.
