Koura Bay Fishing Adventures offers unique fishing trips out of Kaikorua. Here you will find enjoyable cray fishing trips, and quick boat rides across the calm water to get you some nice fish. These packages work great with families and groups of friends.
The captain is experienced and friendly, the scenery is stunning, and the crayfish tasty. If you want to spend a couple of hours on the water, have a glass of wine in the garden overlooking the water as the crayfish is cooked, you’ve got it.
Capt. Gerard is an experienced fisherman who knows how to give an enjoyable trip for novice anglers or fishos just looking to unwind. On his 20’ Stabicraft boat named ‘Sophie-Rose’, Capt. Gerard will take you around the Koura Bay. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha outboard and can comfortably take up to eight people. The vessel is equipped with the navigational electronics, including GPS and a fishfinder. She stores all the gear you will need, as well as the required safety equipment.
You can choose between crayfish or fishing trips. On crayfishing trips, you will be getting the little fellas out from the water within minutes. Afterwards, the captain will welcome you in his nice garden where you can savour some nice wine and socialize. It’s great for groups of friends and families.
On fishing trips, you will meet the captain and head out to the bay. And, the boat is launched with a tractor, so if you’re coming with kids, they’re going to find it interesting and likely have a story to retell. When you set out, you will be fishing for Sea Perch, Cod, Kahawai, as well as many more fish that live near the coast. There is no fishing license required, so all you need to bring are comfortable clothes, a camera, and sunglasses.
This is great chance to experience the beautiful Koura Bay. Get your backpacks, invite friends, and come along.
If you don’t catch anything, you don’t get charged. But don’t worry, you practically always catch fish!
