Bucket List Charters

Alan & Karen have been operating their “barefoot luxury” charter business in the beautiful Bay of Islands, New Zealand for 2 years and have met many wonderful people as they’ve shared the magic of blue waters and green islands from the decks of their 75’ power catamaran, Bucket List.
Our aim is to provide relaxation and fun. We avoid rough seas as to cater to the most sensitive of our passengers and plan to create an outing or holiday built around your dream. We do not promote fishing as in hard out game fishing but can arrange this if it’s part of your dream. Bring a group, send the fishers fishing and leave the non fishers on Bucket List to enjoy other pursuits while you’re out hunting the dinner!
