Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

That was the best charter experience I have done to date.
Jason and Trent did an amazing job, the knowledge and attention to everyone on the boat was exceptional,fish off, bait on line back in the water, no mucking around with these guys. Perfect
What they provided for us on the day was worth every cent.
Well done crew we will definitely be back for more.

It was a really great fishing trip experience this morning from Pihia.

We all caught some fish saw dolphins close to our boat and saw lots of birds hunting for fish on the water.

We also went through the hole in the rock as well.

Heather was also good at letting me now on Monday that Tuesday afternoon fishing trip had changed to Thursday morning.

I booked my trip through Janine at Club Pihia and was really helpful in finding me this,trip

My husband and I booked the Kingfish charter and it absolutely did not disappoint. They take a maximum of 6 passengers but we were lucky enough just to have us and an Irish father and son who made for fab companions on this trip. Jason the skipper and Trent the deckhand were both professional and laid back and clearly very skilled in what they were doing. The 7 hours simply flew by and in that time we managed to catch live bait (including some sizeable Kahawai's) , Kingfish, Snapper and much more, along with sightseeing and dolphins! Honestly money well spent and we are definitely booking again. It literally was the coolest day!
Plus Heather is a dream to deal with in the office and for the ladies there is a toilet on board.

Another fantastic day out with these guys .Jason and Trent know exactly what to do to make an awesome day full of catching fish. Crew are friendly relaxed and helpful so much so this was my 5th time in less than 6 months.

I took part in the Snapper Fishing excursion organised by May Marie Charters (Paihia). I had specific requirements for a left-handed wind reel and that posed no problems at all with the team who set me up in no time at all.
Our guides, Jason and Trent worked so hard to ensure we all had the most memorable fishing experience. I was really impressed by Jason's attention to detail when the bait-fish had moved out of range, he quickly put us back on the shoal so we sufficient bait for later on. Everyone caught and even the tangled lines, caused by running Kahawai did not dampen their enthusiasm to get us fishing again asap.
You know when you had a great time because when time absolutely flew. I may not have caught a PB Snapper today, but I saw some cracking specimens landed so these guys know what they're doing. However, I've caught my first Kingfish got smashed up by another, much larger one, witnessed two Bronze Whaler sharks almost back to the boat and had countless scraps with good sized Kahawai and nice-sized Red Snapper too. What a day. I need a lie-down now. Wish we had fishing this good in the UK !
I recommend this trip without any reservation. Thanks guys, it was a blast today.

Book with these guys, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommend this charter. I booked a snapper charter for my partner, dad and son for Xmas. The communication and service from Heather right from the start was fantastic. They went out and had a fantastic morning thanks to Dave and Trent. Caught lots of fish and came home very happy with their filleted fish. I would recommend this charter for those of all ages. My lot will definitely be booking again next time we’re up! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
