Kaikoura Sea Fishing Tour with Captain Tomo

Join Captain Tomo on his fishing adventures in the beautiful Kaikoura area.

Tomo has vast fishing experience and is your basic and classic Kiwi bloke! A dry sense of humour and a passion for ensuring that you receive the best possible fishing experience he can deliver, a great day awaits you out on Kaikoura waters.

On this two to four-hour excursion with Captain Tomo, you will get the opportunity to catch a variety of fish, such as the infamous crayfish (New Zealand lobster) which are plentiful around the Kaikoura coastline. Other fish like Terakihi, Gurnard and Grouper are often caught but the thrill for many is when it comes time to haul in the crayfish pots. When these are hauled to the surface, more often than not, they contain crayfish. You then help to re-bait the pot, sort and measure the crayfish (to comply with New Zealand fisheries' regulations), and are able to take some home with you.

Insider Tips

  • Your packing list should include: sunglasses, sunscreen, and medicine for motion sickness (if required)

Additional Information

  • It is not guaranteed that every participant will take home a lobster or crayfish as with fishing there are never any guarantees, but in most cases you will likely take home one of these magnificent eating crustaceans for your evening meal!
