Fishing equipment is provided at no charge to all of our guests who would like to fish from the Helena Bay Lodge pontoon. Here it is common to catch trevally, snapper and john dory. For those who would like to venture further offshore we can arrange fishing charters departing from the property for a full or half day, with a selection of vessels to suit your budget.
Helena Bay works with several local operators including Bay of Islands favorite Back in Black. Back in Black offers New Zealand luxury charters for those seeking superior fishing trips and an unforgettable experience … sightseeing, relaxation, quality family time and fun! Major sport fish are abundant off the Tutukaka Coast. These include striped marlin, blue marlin, swordfish, yellowfin and bluefin tuna and kingfish. Of course, there are always the Kiwi favourites: snapper, kahawai and trevally.
Chartered fishing trips can be arranged by our reception team. Guests can board their charter vessel from the Lodge jetty.
