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!

Fabulous Evening with Frosty - The Real Mike

Forth time on Red Boat , 3rd with Frosty Mike !! He is an AMAZING skipper.. Attentive, super friendly, great sense of humour and goes above and beyond to ensure u get fish in your bin !! Frosty Mike works Wednesday to Sunday .. If u want an amazing experience, ensure you book those days with him .. Sadly , I can’t say the same for the other “Mike” 😏 We had an extremely disappointed trip with him the last time we went out .. Many thanks for another wonderful trip out Frosty Mike .. See you again soon !!

Very good

It was a lot of fun because it was the first time I went fishing with my son on a boat. I highly recommend doing this type of fishing.

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. 😑

Half day fishing not worth it

The half day fishing is not worth it if you want to catch something as the travel to and back is 2 hours 40mins. The boat is so slow. We hired the rods and none of them worked properly, something was wrong with all of them. I would go on the full day one and take my own rod and tackles.
