Hooked on Barrier fishing charters cater for groups wanting exclusive use of a boat, and individuals wanting a casual fishing trip. You set the pace: and choose from full or half day, fishing and diving charters. (Please note we are not a game fishing boat and our primary fishing area is on the west coast of Great Barrier Island)

We regularly catch Snapper, Kahawhai, Tarakihi, Trevally and Kingfish. As well as some great fishing, our charters get you closer to the most spectacular scenery on Great Barrier Island. We often see dolphins and whales on our trips (depending on the time of year), so bring your camera!

We can help kids and beginners learn to fish, and will tailor trips to suit your group. To organise something special, please talk to us.

Qualified divers may want to mix fishing and diving in a group charter. However be aware that diving takes precedence while divers are in the water. Dive for tasty crayfish and scallops, or visit one of the two wreck dives near the island. Safety first: relevant experience and a dive buddy are essential for all divers.
