Birdwing Fishing offer Adventures in Paradise to everyone who comes aboard, whether they are family groups or keen fishos. With experienced ocean sailors for skippers, they try harder to give you a great day out.

During the Winter, Birdwing fish the outer gulf, venturing out into deep water and using clever techniques to hook some tasty fish. In the Summertime, they frequent the waters around Kawau Island, or Waiheke and The Noises.

Their comfortable and fast McLay alloy boat is equipped with top of the range electronics by Furuno and Raymarine, allowing you to find the very best places to fish. Powered by an inboard Yanmar diesel engine, the boat is well maintained and regularly surveyed to ensure it is in the best condition. Equipped with plenty of fishing gear, the boat also features an innovative quick release Maxwell anchor that can be deployed and retrieved quickly, meaning you can easily bottom fish a variety of different spots.

The team at Birdwing are dedicated to combining old fashioned tenacity with new fishing ideas, always aiming to make your fishing trip as fun and successful as possible. They use bait as well as heaps of berley to attract lots of fish towards the boat, and can also guide you through the techniques of softbaiting and fishing with lures in case you want more of a challenge.
