Bay Fishing Charters offers shared and private trips fishing the best spots in the Hauraki Gulf. Jump aboard and speed offshore for the chance to catch Snapper, Kingfish, Maomao, Trevally, and so much more. Fish until your arms fall off, then head home with a boot-full of delicious fish!
You’ll be fishing aboard the “Nimble II”, a 17.1 m (57’) Rainbow fishing boat. This hardy vessel was born for a life of commercial fishing, but she’s perfectly suited to sportfishing, too. The boat can carry up to 25 guests and can fish up to 20 people at once with ease.
The Nimble II features a warm, cozy cabin and an enclosed toilet for your comfort and convenience. She can sleep 12 people on overnight trips and has tea and coffee-making facilities, as well as a large BBQ for you to cook up some lunch or dinner.
Day trips will take you as far out as Bream Bay and the Hen & Chickens. Book in for an overnight charter and you could be heading 50-plus kilometres offshore to spots like the Mokohinau Islands or even Great Barrier Island. Out here, you can find monster Kingfish, as well as some of the biggest Snapper you’ll ever come across!
Skipper Andy Brockie has been on the water for over 40 years. You can trust him to put you on the fish. He provides rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait for everyone onboard. You will also get hot and cold soft drinks and full access to the BBQ to cook up your meals.
Bay Fishing Charters can cater for social clubs, Christmas parties, private functions, and corporate events. Whoever you are and whatever you’re after, you can’t go wrong fishing on the Nimble II.

The boat was ideal for a large group of 10 like we were but with a small group it would not on be a great experience. The captain was a grumpy bugger and didn’t talk or smile at all. The lady was great and was always willing to help out. We caught 16 good size fish so good at know where the fish are.
