Kai meaning food · Koura meaning crayfish

Trust me, it lives up to its name.

Kaikoura is situated between a mountain range and a pristine coastal environment abundant with a variety of amazing ocean life ranging from the Spermwhale to the small endangered sea bird called Huttons Shearwater.

The Boat

Kaikoura Fishing Tours will take you on the ‘Tessa B’ , a custom built 12 meter long charter vessel with the highest safety and fishing equipment onboard. She is very stable and has tea/coffee facilities, large sized bathroom, covered seating and surveyed for 18 passengers, however, we have a maximum of 12 people fishing at once.

The vessel has fished the Chatham Islands and the lower west coast of the South Island.

We cater for all levels of fishing experience from the expert to the novice, with all gear and training supplied.

Kaikoura Fishing Trips

We cater for the expert fisherman to the novice with all training provided and gear supplied.

All fish is filleted ready for cooking or if preferred catch and release. We are about preservation of the fisheries and give all fish that are too small or breeding stock back to the sea so fish stocks continue to be plentiful.

During the trip we can describe the sea birds and their habitat, also whales and dolphins are not an uncommon sight while fishing.

However we won't tell you too much more because words and pictures cannot describe Kaikoura and the surrounding areas well enough, you will have to come and see for yourself just how amazing the place really is.

See you in Kaikoura!
