Had a great day out with Chris on Hooked with Barrier. I was with 8 colleagues and customers where we went out for an all day fishing season. Chris was very knowledgeable and dropped us on some great spots where we caught plenty of snapper and travelli. His carrot cake for morning tea is well known island wide and the spread for lunch was great. Thanks for a great day out Chris we all thoroughly enjoyed it. 🎣

We had an amazing day with Captain Chris exploring around Great Barrier and the Broken islands. His knowledge of the area was excellent and we anchored in different areas and had time for a swim. The Carrot cake he made was delicious along with an excellent lunch and coffee throughout the day. I would highly recommend this trip and a highlight for our time on Great Barrier Island.

We had a large group head out for a whole day experience, the sea wasn’t too flash so Chris adapted the day for us to suit our group. We had the first half of the day fishing for the guys and the second sightseeing for the whole group and the kids. The kids loved the snapper we could feed directly off the boat and the kayaking and paddle boarding! Chris was fantastic, very knowledgeable and happy to help is any way possible. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting the Barrier!

Thanks to Chris & young Jack for an amazing lunch cruise on "Sundancer." . There were 8 of us in our group and we all had so much fun. Both Chris & Jack's sense of humour was infectious. . Chris's knowledge he shared with us about the Island was very informative. At all times he was professional and even though we did have a couple of quite rough segments we all felt safe under his Captaincy. Greeted with morning tea and beautiful Carrot Cake, then a great lunch at Kaikoura Island cooked on board by Chris & Jack, where we could watch the colourful snapper come up to the boat was beautiful. Visit to a local Manuka oil manufacturer . No recorded itinerary or microphones on this boat. Chris's commentary was all personal and was happy to answer any questions we had. 5 hours and Highly recommend this trip. Thanks Chris & Jack.

Fabulous day out on the boat with Chris. Started the morning with tea and homemade carrot cake(delicious). Our trip took us along the coast to see the Gannet Colony, all the islands and a stop to buy honey from one of the locals. On our way back Chris spotted the dolphins and took us right in and we had an amazing experience. 10 out of 10
