We spent the morning fishing with him on his great boat in the Northern arm of the lake in Stephenson's Bay, catching three nice trout, including two brown trout and a rainbow trout. Davy even cooked one of he brown trout on a grill on the stern of... More

Davy is a legend. This fishing trip rates as one of the best we've had and it was all down to Davy (and his wife's great chocky muffins). I really appreciated how much he loved his job and while we trolled Davy had cracker banter. We simply had a blast AND we both hooked fish. Thanks Davy, beaut way to... More

We spent a couple of hours on the lake . It has bees one of the most wonderful things we have done in N.Z.. Apart from the scenario, astonishing, the courtesy of the guy has been also one of the most wonderful things we have had in N.Z.

This was an excellent trip, Davy is a great fishing guide and host who made the whole experience really enjoyable. He knows the best places to go and will try everything he can to get you a fish. The homemade muffins and cookies are awesome. Whether you're along for serious fishing or just the scenery you can't help but enjoy... More

A memorable day on Lake Wanaka. Davy is a perfect guide. He knows the lake well, and the best spots to fish. We landed some very nice browns, and a big rainbow that put on a good show. Davy grilled up one of the browns right on the boat for lunch, which tasted fantastic. It was even better with some... More

We booked at the last minute as our expedition to Milford Sound was cancelled due to the weather. Davy took us out on his boat, for a scenic 2 hour cruise. He was informative and very friendly. My husband is disabled, but we managed to board the boat with ease and he was very comfortable on the boat. Lake Wanaka... More

...on a rather cold and rainy day, which we could enjoy right on board thanks to Davy! As fresh as you can possibly have a trout, delicious!

My husband and I like were looking forward to organising a fishing trip in New Zealand during our trip on the South Island in May 2015. We had tried to book Adventure Wanaka online prior to arriving in the town but all slots were fully booked. Once we had arrived and checked in to our holiday park we spoke to... More

Fantastic morning with Davy fishing on Lake Wanaka. He made myself and the family of four who were also fishing welcome and relaxed. During the morning homemade muffins and lemonade were available along with hot drinks. A beautiful morning but a slow start with the fish. Despite my clumsy efforts to land two ( that got away) he remained cheerful... More
