Time of my life

For my first fishing experience on a fishing charter with an experienced skipper and other enthusiatic keen fishers, I really enjoyed it and felt encouraged. My experience from the start to the end was awesome! It was great learning from Master Mike, he could skip ashore in his sleep with the knowledge, skills and passion he has for being out on the water. I will be back and this time with my own bait runner and squid bait!! 🤞🏽 thanks The Red Boats, what a thrill!! everyone should give it a go, have no expectations to catch and just enjoy the whole experience on the water looking at our beautiful city and fishing in our beautiful country. We were lucky enough to fish infront of Rangitoto!

A solid 5-star experience!

we reeled in a good number of fish! The captain's expertise and assistance were invaluable. We're already looking forward to returning!

Best trip ever

This trip does exceed my expections. As someone who fears water, my initial plan was to kill two bird with one stone- one, challenge myself with a whole day out in the ocean; two, check my first fishing experience. It turned out that I have received more than that. Thanks to our super multitasker Michael and nature, I brought heaps of fish home and let go of some baby ones. Also I was luck enough to go on this trip with a group of big family whose song was healing and brought a positive vibe to the whole journey. You will definitely be amazed by how good Michael is in calmly helping 16 people out simultaneously as his name was called all the time to solve the fishing relevant issues. Highly recommend. Just remember to bring your music or entertainment as it takes some time travelling to where fish lives

Wasn’t great.

This trip yesterday wasn’t nearly as good as the last one, we left bang on time but literally over half of the 9 hour trip I can’t get my head around how much our lines were barely in the water an then we were having to pull up lines an move somewhere else. Last trip was sooo good but this trip not impressed, I understand skipper needs to find the fish but way to much time travelling round an round an round, not enough fishing time I figured we must of only gotten 3.5hrs of fishing. 😑

Great day out with the Kids.

My second time out with The Red Boats, this time we picked up the great value 'Family fishing day' holidays package. It only cost my three daughters $25 each for an almost full days fishing. Once onboard and wrapped up warm, we powered out past Rangitoto to set down to fishing with the provided gear. Dad spent most the day untangling lines and removing undersized snappers, but the girls learnt to fish and attach bait themselves by the end of it. Skipper was knowledgeable and patient with us noobs, unhooking the tricky fish caught and freeing a live bird that we somehow caught. We downed the cooked sausages and even used a couple as bait when we ran out. Some impressive fish were caught by others on the boat and it was a nice family feel with other kids fishing. The girls caught forty odd fish and kept several large enough to take home to impress Mum! We will be back.
