Fish & Cruise Wanaka provides a classic Kiwi adventure everyone should experience in their lives. You will not only fish and enjoy the scenery of this picturesque lake, but you’ll also enjoy a freshly cooked meal onboard. For at the end of the trip, the captain will clean and cook your catch on the boat, so you can have a truly authentic experience.

The charter is run by a captain who has over 15 years of professional experience and a passion that goes back to being a child. On his 5th birthday, he received his first rod as a present, and he still has it. These charters are a reflection of his love for fishing and the surrounding area of Lake Wanaka.

Fishing will be done aboard a Reflex commercial boat with the capacity for 5 guests. It is powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine, which makes it pretty fast and reliable on the water. It is equipped with all the safety and electronics required to make your trip a safe and successful one. You can use the fishfinder to locate the best spots where the fish swim in schools, and by following the captain’s recommendations, you will be able to boat lots of them.

Lake Wanaka has a healthy population of Quinnat Salmon, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. You will be catching these species using the fishing gear provided by the captain, including rods, reels, tackle, and bait. Whether you are a novice angler or a pro, you will have a good time aboard by soaking up the scenery, breathing in the fresh air and catching delicious fish.

Our amazing Captain has been fishing on lakes and rivers since before he could walk. Fishing has been a passion of his for a long time. After many years of fishing all around the world, the Captain moved to Wanaka in 2004 and began operating on the lake not long after. After a number of years and many satisfied clients of all ages, and from all corners of the world, that passion is still there. We offer spinning or trolling, exploring the islands, the bush and beaches - winter, spring, summer or autumn - Lake Wanaka is a magic part of the country to explore and enjoy. Join us for some time on the lake - you'll love it!
