Hananui Fishing Charters

Hananui Fishing Charters is run by locally born John Clifford, who has been fishing these waters for decades. The Bay of Islands has a smorgasbord of fish including Snapper, Kingfish, Trevalli, Kahawai (otherwise known as Sea Trout), Terakihi and much more.

Charters are available, even if you are not currently a guest of Hananui Lodge and Apartments. When busy, priority will be given to our guests.

Four Hour Charter

Enjoy four hours of morning or afternoon fishing. Fish most likely to be caught on this trip are Snapper, Trevalli, Kahawai and Terakihi.

$135 per person, plus your skipper John will bait your hooks for you and will clean and fillet your fish (if you want) at the end of the trip!

Minimum of 2 people.  Maximum of 4 people.

Six Hour Charter

For those of you looking for a little more excitement and challenge, what about experiencing a Kingfish at the end of your line? These fish are further out, so we'll need a couple of extra hours to get you there and back. For this reason, we leave in the morning.

$250 per person, plus John will bait your hooks for you and will clean and fillet your fish (if you want) at the end of the trip!

Minimum of 2 people.  Maximum of 4 people.
