There’s a fish with your name on it in Auckland, and Riko Boat Charters will help you catch it! With Captain Bryan at the helm, you’re in knowledgeable and experienced hands.

The fish in these waters include Pink Snapper, John Dory, Silver Trevally, and more if you cast your line at the right time of year. You’ll target your catch by fishing with heavy tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Any fish within the legal limit is yours to take home.

Your day begins aboard Riko Riko, a 38’ Saltwater fishing that holds up to 10 passengers. It has outriggers and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Rods, reels, and tackle are included, along with dead bait.

The charter boat covers your fishing license. Just show up ready for a good time! Keep in mind that some fish may have harvest limits or closed seasons. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain. There will be coffee and tea on the boat for you, and feel free to bring your favorite drinks.

Now, come aboard with Riko Boat Charters and get hooked!

    Join me for a full day of fishing, targeting Snapper, Kahawai, Trevally, Gurnard, John Dory, and, if lucky, Kingfish. We have rods and bait, usually pilchard and squid. Just bring your lunch or snacks, and have a great day on the water. We don't have a BBQ and have always found a cut lunch doesn't take too much time away from fishing. Most of the time, we travel out to search for fish. This is a great time to sit and have tea or coffee and snack and chat.

I love wildlife and the sea, so I fish as much as possible and dive when I can. I have skippered many charter vessels besides Riko Riko, both big and small, but she has been in my care for over 12 years now, and I'm still improving in places. Old is gold, and wood is good, and the fish seem to love swimming around her, that's for sure.
