We will show you how to catch a delicious Crayfish before heading to our bountiful fishing grounds. If you don't catch any fish we will refund you in full!

My in-laws and I went fishing with Mark. It was a great and enjoyable experience. Mark not only set up everything for us, he also explained lots of things about sea fishing. Options were given regarding how fish were to processed and kept. The fish fillets we took home were very well prepared.

Despite of seasickness, our family had a lot of fun going out fishing with Mark. Mark is very knowledgable, honest and friendly. He is very experienced and knows where to get fish. He tried to move us to a calmer area, seeing that we had seasickness. We caught a lot of sea perch, one blue cod, and from Mark's bait basket, three crayfish (Lobster)! It was wonderful. I would definitely go again, taking enough seasickness pills with me next time. Highly recommended!

We went out with a family group. Everything was wonderful. Mark (the skipper) was flexible and open to tailoring the afternoon to our particular interests, with respect to the type of fishing we wanted to do and viewing wildlife (albatross, seals and even dolphins and whales if you are lucky!). he looked after us well, baiting and filleting the fish, and filling us in on the natural history of the area. This is a great, honest and good value company. We ended up with crays and plenty of fish to bring home and had an idyllic, happy day. I thoroughly and unreservedly recommend Fish Kaikoura.

We enjoyed our fishing trip with Mark so much we went out 2 different days. A great guy with a lot of great information. On our first day we didn't catch much according to Mark. A few sea perch. The second day we went out unsure of the windy weather and by the time we got our there the wind died down and we caught a lot of fish. Lots of sea perch even got slightly bored catching them and caught a couple blue and red cods. No need to do and albatross tour when you go fishing they were all around us while we fished. As we caught fish Mark would be cleaning the fish for us to take and just as fast he'd be there to bait our lines. He gave us a few crayfish which makes the trip so worthwhile! Crayfish are very expensive! Would highly recommend Mark!

Had a great day fishing even though it got a little rough later in the day. We came back with a good amount of sea perch and blue cod as well as two big crawfish! Had a great trip out and would definitely recommend!
