Ocean Dream Charters Ltd.

Ocean Dream Charters is a family run business that combines comfort, luxury and fun on one of the fastest boats of its type in the Auckland area. The charter is run by skipper Kevin and his wife, who have had a lifelong dream to run a fishing charter of their own. They started the business in order to share their love of fishing with others and cater to anyone who wants to have a good time aboard a luxury vessel. Their niche market is Chinese tourists in New Zealand, while their staff will provide you with an exceptional service and cater to all your needs.

You will fish aboard their 47 foot Jeanneau cruiser, which was built in 2006 and has a capacity for 16 guests. It is powered by two 500 HP Cummins engines with a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots.The boat consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen with a refrigerator, a flybridge with 2 sun loungers and ample seating, and air-conditioning throughout the boat. You will also find all the necessary safety equipment including life vests, EPIRB and a CPR-trained crew, so you can totally relax and be safe.

Ocean Dream Charters will take you fishing to Aucklands’s favourite fishing spots where species such as John Dory, Pink Snapper, Yellowtail Amberjack (Kingfish), Lobster and Hapuku can easily be found. You can go on inshore or offshore trips, cruising the inner islands or the outer Hauraki Gulf, and use a variety of techniques such as light tackle, bottom fishing, jigging and drift fishing. Depending on the fish you want to target, skippers will be able to advise you which technique to use. They will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, and live bait which is included in the price. This is a very family and child friendly charter so you are welcome to bring your kids along and they can taste the charms of fishing for themselves. First mate will help you reel in your catch and their fee is included in the price of your trip.
