If you are heading to Queenstown do not miss an opportunity to get out and have a fish with Simon. We had an awesome few hours on the boat and can’t wait to go out again next time I am in Queenstown.

Fantastic to experience Lake Wakatipu up close and wet a line. Simon has good knowledge in fishing, and makes everything effort to ensure you land something. Got a brownie and chinook! Wanna go back for more!

H, your best option is to choose the private charter (boat to yourself). You can book direct through tripadvisor. No charge for the infants, private charter is $1200.00NZD so that works out at $240each.
