We had an awesome trip and Matt Dobson is a very good operator, nice clean boat very tidy machine indeed.
Even though the fishing was slow and it was only a short 4 hour trip Matt did his utmost to get a few fish in the bin for us.
Couldn't fault it really when the fish don't play the game, that's just fishing at the end of the day.

A delightful day's fishing
Feb 2020
We were a party of four, none with very much fishing experience. Matt Dodson is an excellent skipper and host, helping and advising us on technique. Matt worked hard to find the spots where the fish were and we were very satisfied with our catch. At the end of the day Matt filleted the catch for us and we each took home enough for several meals. The boat, Black Pearl, is a large, well-appointed modern boat. The women in our party were pleased that there is an onboard toilet. We had a really enjoyable day's fishing and plan to do it again.

Very experienced local skipper, with great knowledge and understanding of the area. Even in hard fishing conditions will always come out with the goods. Always got good advice and the right gear for the occasion.

Best Fishing Ever!!

My son and I went out on a charter on May 20, 2019 with Matt Dobson of Black Pearl Charters. We a had a great time fishing! My son landed a Kingfish on light tackle with Matt's instructions. Matt is a very knowledgeable Captain.I would recommend a trip on his boat if you want to have a truly exciting fishing experience!

Great day out

Did an afternoon charter knowing conditions weren't the best for biting. Such as a fast boat we were in our first spot quickly. Matt bent over backwards to move us around until we hit the hungry fish. Decided to just keep good eating fish so had plenty of catch and release fish too. Everyone left with sore arms and enough fillets to feed both our families kindly filleted by Matt. Great boat and skipper will definitely be booking again.

I live in the Far North of NZ where the fishing is normally pretty good. But WOW, I was not expecting Wellington to be so productive!!! If you're reading this, you must go out on the Black Pearl! I nailed so many decent fish of so many different species! This guy Matt Dobson is a great skipper and seriously knows the fishery down there. I'm not normally one to pay to go on charters, but I'll be doing this every time i'm in the area! Absolutely brilliant day Matt! Many thanks, Gary B

Our team went out with Matt from Black Pearl for a full day on 13th Dec 17. We had an absolute blast, with Matt working hard to keep us on the fish for the entire day - not an easy task! The end result was very tired arms, big grins and magical memories!

Everything about the Black Pearl operation is extremely professional and I was very impressed with the quality of the gear Matt has on board - in particular the Shimano reels.

One thing I can say for certain is that we'll be back. Whether it be with clients or just the Desert Road team, I am very keen to get back out there on the water with Black Pearl Charters. Considering the quality of the gear, the fishing and Matt's invaluable local knowledge, I strongly believe it is a value for money experience.
