Hooked on Barrier Charters

Hooked on Barrier 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.

We regularly catch (and can also cook) 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 for those with more experience who are keen to target particular species. To organise something special, please talk to us.

Qualified divers may want to mix fishing and diving in a group charter. 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.

Our charter vessel, Sundancer leaves from Whangaparapara wharf, unless otherwise arranged.

For a relaxed outing for all ages, read about our sightseeing options.
