Fishing

Keen on fishing but don’t want to venture out too far? Then why not enjoy an afternoon by the water on our very own pontoon. We have an extensive range of top-quality fishing equipment and can put down burley to attract plenty of fish.

Cast out in to the reef waters of Helena Bay where you can find an abundance and vast variety of fish. Snapper is one of New Zealand’s highly prized eating fish and is often caught off our jetty or surrounding rocks. Bring back any ‘keepers’ and our Head Chef will prepare and cook it for you – it doesn’t get much fresher than that!

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.

We have multiple partners who we work with to tailor-make the perfect fishing trip for you. Snapper, hāpuka and kingfish are available all year round; alternatively, why not try game fishing? Troll for marlin, tuna and swordfish, you can even try spear fishing too! Guests will often see whales, dolphins and penguins on these excursions. Pontoon pick up and drop off is available and we can organise a gourmet picnic lunch, unless you would prefer a quick trip ashore to a recommended café, it’s entirely up to you.
