Westcoast Charters are Wellingtons longest running and most experienced smaller group boat charter we catch fish and have a clean safety record never had a disaster we dont take chances with the sea.
This is my style of fishing charter the aim of the trip is to catch you fish and make it as positive and enjoyable as I can it is not a case of sitting back in comfort and hoping it will happen you can do that at home and watch it on tv,I will help you to achieve a good catch of a variety of good fish if wind and currents are a bit against us we have to work a bit harder or fish closer to shore and usually achieve a result if you have any requests on how you would like the trip to go feel free to talk to me and I will try to customise the trip as long as it is practical.
While we are catching eaters a kingfish can dive in and take a bait or we could have a livebait out if it is practical.
Full day and half day local fishing trips,snapper evening trips, tarakihi and blue cod fishing, groper fishing,trolling for albacore tuna in summer fast twin engined catamaran Felix for up to 6 passengers less time travelling more time fishing I do a more personalised trip.

You are looking for a fishing trip, Westcoast Charters specialise in smaller groups and good experiences most people have good things to say about us I can organise a bigger boat midweek for bigger groups, take time to browse through our website for information on our charter fishing and fishing in the Wellington region every charter company has their style and ours is unique to us
If you are short of time here it is in a nutshell.
Half day trips are tarakihi blue cod or snapper depending on time of year.
Half day family trips are very successful mum dad and the kids or split the cost with another family for these trips we go not too far and where everyone can catch without too much drama expect lots of pan sized fish we have lots of good experiences.
Full day trips we can go out for groper as well if conditions are suitable.
We get other fish you might get a kingfish john dory trevally and who know what else we dont get lots of kingfish and big snapper here but they do turn up.
I have been fishing in New Zealand for around 28 years and I am an active and hardworking skipper/guide, this is a fishing charter focused on catching good fish not budget harbour trips sharing with huge boatloads of people and tangled lines, we will put you on groper tarakihi cod snapper depending on what you want or the time of year or if it is a full day or half day fishing trip.Occasionally the fish are slow biting we cant help that but usually we do ok or really well no refunds if you dont catch the whole ocean
There are rules but they are for your safety and to avoid damage to the boat and tackle I am a relaxed easy going guy except when the fish are not biting I want you to have a good day and I want to enjoy taking you. Enjoy your experience youll get fish but make the most of the outing anyway.
On Felix I am skipper and guide I target and catch the locally available tarakihi and blue cod, we can move out for groper if you want a big fish and in summer we do snapper fishing also which is good on an evening or early morning trip but they can be caught just as easily during the day, Albacore tuna can be around too in the summer we can get one or two out trolling its a great experience and they are very good smoked raw or steak the fillet and cook rare
Either charter Felix for up to 6 passengers full day $900 half day $700 Verns Hunters further out, evening trips are $600 regardless of how long we stay out Mana island and coast $600 up to 6 passengers we get good fish on these trips too fishing tackle included,book a date for this and it's yours

Hi, we are based in Titahi Bay, Porirua City just north of Wellington New Zealand.
Our fishing trips can cater for individuals, groups of up to 5 on our fast catamaran or larger groups of up to 12 or so on the 14 metre launch
We can depart from Titahi Bay or Mana near Wellington any time of the year.
The trips are bottom fishing for groper, tarakihi, blue cod and during the warmer months the addition of snapper trevally albacore tuna and kingfish are a possibility from the Wellington west coast we can target kingfish if you want to do that.
The photo is of a group of workmates who chartered the launch for a day out from Mana, they caught 26 groper and had a ball, a few beers and a barbeque on the way back.
We get bookings from people from all walks of life, tradesmen, professionals out for a day team building, families, tourists.
Snapper fishing off our 6 metre cat is popular for an evening trip, we also catch them in the summer and autumn whilst fishing for tarakihi.
We have several options of fishing charters all with different prices to suit your budget.
