Adventure Wanaka Fish And Cruise

100 Lakeside Road Wanaka.
Wanaka, New Zealand

Adventure Wanaka offers Trout and Salmon fishing in the stunning Lake Wanaka aboard a luxury cruiser. Sit back, relax, and dip a line if you want to: however you want to spend you time on the water, Davy and his team will do everything they can to make your dreams come true.

Your adventure will take place aboard a beautiful Four Winns boat whose sleek lines grace the crystal clear waters of the lake and complement the snow-capped mountains that surround it. The boat features a private bathroom with a shower as well as a kitchen, and it is also fully equipped with navigational equipment and safety gear. With an enclosed interior, you will be protected from any bad weather while also being able to sample the highlights of freshwater fishing in New Zealand.

If fishing is your thing, Adventure Wanaka enables you to put your skills to practice, providing gear and professional advice for techniques such as fly fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging. Both beginners and experienced anglers are welcome to come aboard and fish for their dinner, with the prize being a delicious Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, or Quinnat Salmon.

Once you have landed your catch you will have the opportunity to have it filleted and cooked by the team on the boat’s portable barbeque, nicely rounding off your perfect day in paradise.

Please note fishing licenses are $20 per day per adult.

About the Captain

Davy Pattison
Wanaka, New Zealand
Member since August 2016
I grew up on a sheep farm and have spent many years of my life enjoying the great outdoor lifestyle that New Zealand has to offer. I have fished since I was a little boy. Fresh water lake and river fishing for trout and I have also spent many years of sea fishing in coastal waters mainly for reef fish. Adventure Wanaka has given me the opportunity to combine the two things I love doing the most. Fishing and boating. I offer lake fishing experiences from trolling, spin and fly fishing around our beautiful lake Wanaka.

The boat was real nice well equipped for any kind of weather, Davi was great and helped us out with everything even home made cookies, muffins and BBQ’d a trout for lunch.  The Lake is perfect mirror smooth which can be a challenge for fishing but we did great. 1/2day, caught 7 fish up to about 4 lbs. 4 big browns and 3 tasty rainbows. We were just throwing them back as we caught what we needed to eat. lot’s of action and gorgeous scenery
