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.

Had the priveledge of spending a couple of days fishing with skipper Mike, and deckie Ross, last week. We have been on many charter trips, but this one absolutely beats any of the others hands down. Add spectacular scenery and amazing wildlife to fantastic fishing......life doesnt get much better. Thanks Mike and Ross for your incredible knowledge and friendliness.

Mike and Ross were excellent hosts . So much fun and well balanced with good information on the best fishing spots. Though we were novice anglers, they gave us the right amount of help to let us feel like pros - bringing in the fishes with great dexterity. We went to different spots and had different types of fishes - from perch, kawahai to sharks. They helped us sashimi the fishes and what an enjoyable feast. Certainly recommend them.

Our family group of 4 adults just enjoyed the best ever full day fishing charter with these guys. Kicked off with a bbq brekkie, and the day just got better and better. We got our full quota of the biggest Blue Cod, nabbed a few other species, and enjoyed the company of a couple of very knowledgeable, helpful, and straight up bloody good blokes running the charter. Highly recommend this charter. Best value for money. 10/10.

Had the best time with Seamist last month on a fishing tour. Booked last minute and they were easy to deal with on the phone and on the day. It was meant to just be a 2hr fishing trip but they asked us if we had time to stay out for 3hrs so we could get further out for better fishing given the recent water/storm conditions (at no extra cost). This was totally worth doing - we literally dropped the line, and there were bites within seconds.
The crew were super friendly and helpful in your typical laidback kiwi way. I have only fished once before but this was not an issue - they can bait, unhook, fillet etc for you (they will help as much or as little as your want). We all came back with a crayfish and bag of fish each.

Absolutely fantastic. Brilliant family trip for our kiwi 6 and 8 year old children. Excellent value for money. 2 hours on a proper fishing boat (actually, we didn’t say no when kindly asked if we wanted to stay out a bit longer to get to the best spot for the day!), great fun pulling up blue cod, lots of perch and crayfish from pots. Booking was easy. Skipper & first mate were relaxed, professional and helped our family have lots of fun. Kids loved it, we were taken to a magic spot, and left with enough kaimoana to eat like Kings for the next 3 days on our road trip. Also happened to spot seals, albatross and many other sea birds. Kids enjoyed learning about sustainability and now think they are experts in marine environmental issues and fishing. Kids out-fished their parents. Bragging has continued for days and days. Hard to beat this trip! Highly recommended.

Spectacular May weather for our full day trip - great knowledgeable skipper and a delicious cooked breakfast! But best of all the fishing! Lots of Perch and Blue Cod, some Trumperter and best of all the large Blue Nose of the electric reels and finishing off with some Crays! Highly recommended experience that leaves you with a swag of filleted fish to take home and great memories.
