Really a great experience. Went for snapper and was rewarded with a bunch along with a nice kingfish. Crew were very kind to my son who got a little seasick; went out of their way to find calm waters and allow him to rally. Everyone had a blast. I would definitely rebook if I’m ever back in the Bay of Islands!

Myself & 3 mates from Australia had a successful & fun 1/2 day fishing on Major Tom. We caught plenty & ended up throwing some back as we had caught more than enough to feed our group of 8 for the time we were staying in NZ. We all landed some good size Kingfish a couple of Snapper & Kahawai & Terakihi. These were all great eating fish & the Kingfish put up a good fight to land. The deckhand did a fantastic job of keeping the rods rigged & removing the caught fish & also did a top job cleaning & filleting all we caught. I would go on this boat again. Cheers.

We had the most fun with Geoff and Paul out on “major tom ll”
They’re professional to a tee, with so much knowledge and enthusiasm.
We took my nephew Luka (4 yrs old) also and they were great with him.- boy he talked the whole time, and now wants to go out on Geoff’s boat to catch a Marlin!

This was a great day we arrived for the boat trip at 6.30 in the morning and caught our live bait then once that was done we went to find our targeted fish which was kingfish after a couple of different locations that did not get any luck with the kingfish we went to another spot and that was were we had an awesome time catching plenty of kingis. Both the captain and his first mate were excellent we had 6 people on the boat and were able to alternate easily we we helped and guided the best way to catch what we wanted and we are not novices in fishing. All our fish was fillleted and bag for us by the time we got back to the wharf.  I would highly recommend major tom 2 charters geoff and paul are excellent fishermen

Major Tom and crewman, Paul, were so obliging and kind, providing us with a day of touring the beautiful Bay of Islands combined with fun fishing action. We will definitely return for another day.

The wind and seas were too high for marlin fishing so Captain Geoff gave me the option of changing plans to fish for snapper and yellow tail. I only had one day to fish I took that option. Turned out to be a fun day and we caught snapper and yellow tail. If I fish in the Bay of Ialands again I would go on The Major Tom with Capt. Geoff.
