"Kiwi Angler" Aucklands Top Charter Fishing Vessel

Join the Kiwi Angler for a fishing experience to remember. Cruise out from the Whangaparaoa Peninsula to fish the Hauraki Gulf for some of New Zealand's best fishing.

A purpose built 12.8m launch, the Kiwi Angler is fast and modern, boasting a spacious fishing area with a full walk-around cockpit. It comfortably fishes 15 people and can take up to 25 passengers. This is a great day out for a corporate function, or if it's a sole charter or casual excursion your are after, we can cater for your needs. We offer a full catering service and our onboard barbecue means we can serve up lunch while you move on to catching dinner. This is the freshest fish you will ever eat.

The Kiwi Angler is well equipped with up-to-date electronics for searching out those elusive fish. While the skipper and crews experience and knowledge of New Zealands fish-filled waters has earned them a catch record envied by many. Well take care of everything. Onboard you can hire quality fishing tackle and the bait is the best you can buy, while an ice-bin is provided to keep your catch fresh.

So, if your serious about having a good time and about fishing, call Rex or Lynette Smith to arrange your trip aboard the Kiwi Angler. We will make it one to remember.

Any excuse . . .
What do all those people in photos holding fish have in common? Simple, they go fishing. That's right, if you don't go, you won't catch anything except a bad case of envy. It is much easier and more fun to go fishing on Kiwi Angler. Anyway you look at it, the worst day fishing is better than the best day working.

So get serious about having some fun and Snapper fishing in Auckland. Well just north of Auckland we are based at Gulf Harbour marina The gateway to auckland city.

Where can you go

You can decide where you want to fish or rely on the crews choice of the day. You can fish from Rangitoto to Kawau and Little Barrier, and all areas in between. Tiri Tiri Island, Flat, Horn, and Anchorite Rocks are just some of the potential hot spots available. e.g. Little Barrier approx. 90 mins and Flat Rock approx. 50 mins.

What to bring

We can supply all your tackle, bait, burley and food. Just let us know in advance what your group wants and we'll make it happen. Ask for additional information on catering if required. White soled shoes, warm clothing, sun block, rain coat and your own nibbles are recommend. Bring a bag to take your fish home in.


Just as you don't, we do not have control over the weather, nor can we tell precisely what it will be doing tomorrow. Our experience is that the best solution is to make the decision on the day at the marina. In over 80% of the time, we can go. Cancellation is at the skippers professional discretion.
