Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Hauraki Gulf

According to customer reviews, Fish n Dips Charters LTD, Riko Boat Charters, and Sunday Charters LTD are some of the most popular fishing charters in Hauraki Gulf. Full list of top fishing charters in Hauraki Gulf.

Fish n Dips Charters LTD and Sunday Charters LTD received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Hauraki Gulf.

The most popular fish species you can target are Pink Snapper, John Dory, and Yellowtail Amberjack. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Light Tackle, and Jigging. Inshore fishing, offshore fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Spanning 4,000 square kilometres out to the Pacific Ocean, the Hauraki Gulf has plenty to offer. From the nearshore islands to the reefs protecting the bays, all the way to the deep seas offshore, there’s an angling adventure for everyone. Choose from one of the many Hauraki Gulf Fishing charters ready to take you for a fun-filled day on the water.
 
Known in Maori as “the mournful sea,” the fishing opportunities here will leave you everything but downbeat. Get ready for a thrilling day out wherever you head, as you go up against some delicious creatures such as Snappers, Kingfish, John Dory, and Salmon nearshore. Meanwhile, an offshore trip will see you put your strength to the test against Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, along with Tuna, Swordfish, Groper, and many more prized fish. 
 
If you’re a beginner, then a four- or six-hour trip will give you the chance to test the shallow waters around the islands. A full day trip gives you the chance to head to the Great Barrier Island beyond the Gulf. Experienced anglers, however, will have the chance of spending days on end on the water, hitting up the deep waters of the Pacific for some of the biggest fish out there. 
 
Fishing is an integral part of life all around the coast of the Gulf, so you’ll be able to hop aboard a charter in Auckland, Ti Point, Whangaparaoa, or the Coromandel peninsula. Bring the whole family aboard, and make the most of some unparalleled marine and wildlife on your Hauraki Gulf fishing adventure!

Rules & Regulations

Another beauty of fishing in the Hauraki Gulf is that it’s completely free of charge. There’s no need to get a license before coming aboard. However, you should abide by the rather strict bag limits that are in place, but your professional captain will keep you on top of it all.

January
Welcome in the new year with some of the best fishing on offer in New Zealand. Head to the rich waters of the Pacific and battle it out with monster Blue and Striped Marlin as you go after the catch of a lifetime.
February
While the summer weather may trick you into thinking that an offshore trip is a good idea, beware that it could change at any time. Keep an eye on the clouds before heading offshore to make the most of the Marlin bite. 
March
Auckland’s arts festival and Pasifika festival bring the city to life in March, so while the weather may be threatening to turn, there’s no sign of anything dying down. Combine your visit with a trip to sea for great results. 
April
While summer may be a distant memory, there’s still plenty of red-hot fishing action on offer in the Hauraki Gulf and beyond in autumn. Target Kingfish and Snappers nearshore, or go after Tuna and Swordfish offshore.
May
The weather is still pretty changeable in May but, if you catch it right, you’re in for a real fishing treat. There are still plenty of Marlin offshore, while the tasty nearshore fish offer plenty of action too. 
June
Take advantage of lower hotel prices, and make the most of some incredible fishing, no matter the conditions. There are plenty of Swordfish, Gropers, Kingfish, and Snappers to keep you on your toes. 
July
While the waters may be at their coldest, there are still some warm-blooded fish that are happy to call them home. Get out on the water and keep warm, as you battle it out with Gropers, Swordfish, and more.
August
Get ready to be blown away, literally, when fishing the Hauraki Gulf in August. It’s windy season in the north of New Zealand, so you’ll have to keep an eye on the forecast before heading aboard your trip. 
September
With spring ready to breathe new life into the Hauraki Gulf, there’s a flurry of activity on the water. Go after Tarakihi, Groper, Snappers, and Kingfish, and land some of the country’s most-loved fish. 
October
As the fish begin to spawn, there’s a feeding frenzy in the bay come October. Get your fish on nearshore against beauties such as Kingfish, Snappers, and Tarakihi, and head home with a tasty treat. 
November
Whether you’re looking for a full day on the water, or just a few hours of fun, there’s something for you. Expect incredible action just minutes from leaving the dock, as Snappers make their way close to shore.
December
Summer is here, and the nearshore fishing has never been better. See out the year in style by landing plenty of fish for the holidays, before the offshore season starts in earnest in the new year.

My family of five had the best time out with Tim and Nigel. We’ve never experienced anything like it - our 12 year old caught 18 snapper and we caught 50 between the five of us!! We took only a few delicious ones for dinner and released the rest as we are travelling and leave tomorrow. We had so much fun. These guys know where to go. They also help novices like us learn how to fish. Great tips and advice and just a lovely, relaxed day out.

I had a great afternoon fishing with Roy from Fish N Dips. The ride out and back was a bit bouncy (1hr trip) but when we got to the reef, I caught kingfish and snappers on live mackerel bait. Roy was great in offering advice and keeping us on the fish.

We went out 6am and first caught some live bait. Afterwards we went further out to catch some King fish and Red Snapper. We hat an amazing day and caught some nice fish. Unfortunately two big fish got eaten by sharks. You have to be fast :) The fishing spots were really good and we enjoyed our trip with a little bit of sightseeing from the boat.

Had an amazing day on the water with Captain Roy! He worked with me to reschedule the trip due to inclement weather and put us on fish immediately when we got on the water. Great guy, great day fishing and an even better snapper feast last night. 10/10 👍

Maybe because of the weather,I and my friend got angling in heavy rain and did not made it to catch something. But the captain is so friendly and it gives us a good point of view to go fishing.

We had a terrific morning out with Ben and Nigel. The weather was less than ideal with some big swells and plenty of wind, but they worked hard for us to get us on the fish despite the conditions. Some good snapper were caught (maybe not as many as we all might have liked - see comment about conditions) and the trip seemed to go well. There was always plenty of bait on hand and support for the fishers, and we were kept informed as the morning progressed. I’d happily recommend the Cowboys.

Group of 8 had a great day and caught plenty of fish which made for an enjoyable trip. Only things I would note is that if you opt for catering, it's very basic burgers and the listing says that the crew will clean and fillet the fish but they refused to do it for us on the day and said it was a mistake on the listing.

You can't ask for more from a captain. During the first half of the trip, we didn't get any fishing. However, captain Bryan manage to find a good spot in the second half. Bryan even gave us extra hours to fish to make everyone gets good catch and happy. Bryan's personal charm is a plus to this good fishing day.
