Epic Adventures Ltd - KAOS

Epic Adventures invites you to take a step aboard the newest vessel in their fleet - ‘KAOS’. The fisheries are brimming with Yellowtail Kingfish eager to put up a fight and crush your line. Luckily, you will have a skilled skipper by your side, along with top-of-the-shelf boat and quality gear. Just get your bags and hop on!

‘KAOS’ is a brand new 25’ Senator RH770. Powered by 250 HP Honda, this vessel will give you a quick ride to where the fish are. But, that’s not all—the boat is fitted with Simrad marine electronics, carries the finest rods and reels of Shimano, Maxel, and Jigstar. There is a toilet onboard, as well as safety gear, plus outriggers to help you entice the fish—and who knows, you might even snatch some Hapuka, Snapper, or anything else that pulls the line. The boat can take up to five anglers with up to 3 anglers fishing at the same time.

Epic Adventures is a team of local fishermen who give their best to make your day enjoyable and filled with fish. It’s going to be an exciting ride, no matter how skilled you are. Kids are welcome to join the chase and it’s best if they are at least eight years old.

You will head out of Whitianga and cruise towards major fishing locations including Aldies, Cuvier, and the Mercs. Chasing Kingfish is super interesting no matter how many times you’ve caught them before.

Get you family together and book a private charter or meet new fellow anglers aboard a shared charter. The crew will supply all the gear you need, but you should bring food and drinks, as well as a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Pack a camera to get a good angle of the fish. Make sure to book on time as these trips sell as hot pies - just have a look at the photos and you’ll know why. Step onboard and go get that Kingfish!
