FAQs about Fishing Charters in Hauraki Gulf

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

The average price for a private 4 hour Hauraki Gulf fishing trip is $1,206, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,544 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Savage Fishing Charters, Fish n Dips Charters LTD, and Audacious Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Hauraki Gulf.

The most popular fish species you can target are Pink Snapper, Yellowtail Amberjack, and John Dory. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Jigging, and Heavy Tackle. 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.

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.

After a small delay getting started (I forgot to buy ice along with bait), my family had a great day on the water. Captain Tony found some good spots and we reeled in tons of snapper and a couple of beautiful gurnards. Only kept 11 snapper between the 4 of us but could have kept more. We hooked a couple of Kawhai too but they fought like crazy and threw the hooks. Seven hours on the water so we were tired out after the day but have enjoyed eating all the Snapper!

Great day of fishing, brought home 22 fish in total (4 anglers). Tried different spots and learnt about soft baits. You need to take everything you need (rods, bait, drinks, snacks etc) but that was clear in the the ad. Captain made contact early and boat handled choppy ride home with ease. Would go again.

Chartered an 8hour trip with Captain Bryan and had a great time. Bryan was super knowledgeable of the area and brought us fishing at 3 spots. He made the kids really comfortable and helped them gain valuable knowledge and experience in fishing, they really enjoyed themselves. He also recommended areas of interest to visit around Auckland. He even called and found a restaurant where we could bring our catch and have them cooked for dinner . A truly enjoyable day.

The weather was very windy so we didn’t have much choice where to go, so we fished in the harbour. It was still a good day out for the boys.
