Recommend Captain Brett and his deckhand and their boat Motutere. Every thing i expected of a charter was carried out. They were both extremely helpful whether preparing bait, asking everyone how thy were faring and more importantly, untangling lines during the numerous tangle ups. Lastly i would recommend that people always take warm gear regardless of weather

It may pay to advise clients with childrenchildren that in the lead up to Christmas there may be more 'Drinkers' than Fishermen on board. OK for adults but not so good for the 10-16 year olds. Brett is a great Skipper and the boat well maintained and equipped were it not for the 'over imbibers' the trip would have been fantastic and we will certainly book again - just not in December!

We went around Slipper Island trying several spots before we got a good sounding inside Slipper at one of Paul's spots. A good haul of nice snapper with some exciting plays with several large Kahawai While Paul may not have the flashest boat in the fleet he knows the area and where the fish are. As we are both bait fisherman all worked well.

Myself and partner had a day on boat rods and bait included. Good value for money, great staff Ben and Paul were awesome bit of banter and serious tips on how to do things. Ben attended to all customers needs when lines were tangled or had fish on. Ben was there to help us catch fish and when there were no bites we moved spots. Was great. Paul has a lifetime of knowledge and stories. Will definitely go again.

Ben was a great Skip. Kept us on the fish, offered great tips and knowledge and helped us all out with our tangles and kept us rigged up. Nice to have a boat prepared to chase the fish and move as needed. We caught an awesome haul of fish...the travel time was worth it. Thanks Ben and Paul!

Great day, Brett is very active as capt. and is constantly on the hunt looking for the fish. I was impressed that he would put us on a spot, a couple of fish would come on board and then it would dry up soon after, within a few minutes (literally) Brett would be aware obviously by checking the fish finder - and we would be moving onto a better spot. We all pulled in a good amount of take home bounty.

Its great deep sea fishing, guys usually get up to 20 sizeable fishes to take home. One mister caught octopuss, one baracuda, and one got a king fish. Other than that, snapper and tarahiki are very common. Captain is very helpful and he cares for us fishers to get the most out of trip.
