Your Skipper - Chris Ollivier - Hooked on Barrier.

Your Skipper

Chris Ollivier is the owner and also your skipper for all sightseeing and fishing charters. Chris is a fully qualified Skipper (NZ Coastal Master) and has been the master of a range of vessels including Spirit Of Adventure, Spirit of New Zealand and numerous ferries including the Kestrel (double ended Auckland harbour ferry). He has 30 years of international and New Zealand seagoing experience and has been operating charters on the Barrier since 2006.

Chris loves the unspoiled nature of the coastline around his island home, where, apart from the Christmas period, there are few other boats around.

His local knowledge, extensive experience and friendly nature make him your best choice of a Great Barrier guide.
