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.

Yet another amazing trip on the Blackpearl! Whenever friends or family visit, we always hop aboard because it's a world class set up. As long as the weather's good, you're in for a treat. Can't recommend it enough!

Great day out with my mates. Matt put us on to the fish, snapper, kingfish, gurnard, terakihi and kahawai. His knowledge of the area made our trip just an awesome day for all. The weather was perfect and his easy going attitude puts everyone at ease. Got to divide my share of the catch with family and friends. Cant wait to do it again

This is a truly epic experience!

Our group opted for the evening fishing trip, 5pm - 9pm. The weather was perfect, the boat was glorious and Matt was a fantastic Captain and Host.

Matt made us feel very welcomed, made sure we were well setup and had everything we needed to start catching fish.

We managed to land Snapper, Kawaii and a few Blue Cod. We all had so much fun that we’re already trying to find another time that we can all fish again over the summer!

If you’re new to fishing or just keen to get out on the water, this is the trip for you! Get amongst it this summer if you can.

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.
