“Great time out!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We had an excellent half day out with Phil and Wayne from Wahoo Fishing Charters. They really went out of their way to find where the fish were biting. They are a really professional charter and know the waters so well. They have a great relationship with the other charters, which is important, as when you are out in the ocean, they can each talk to each other to see where the fish are biting. My husband had been out on another fishing charter during our stay and couldn't stop raving about how MUCH better Wahoo was in regards to everything - professionalism, equipment, enjoyment level and how well maintained the boat was. And girls, there is a toilet on board!

We will be going back to the Cook Islands and we look forward to going on another charter (or 2) with Wahoo.

Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

Wow thanks so much Phil and Wayne. My fish mad husband is still talking about his wonderful day on your boat. The food, company, help, safety and encouragement was huge, and the "ladies portaloo " was a special and thoughtful touch. Also the belt rod holder for the non fishing member (me) when 4 reels went crazy and I was "forced" to fish ! As a team we managed to bring in the 4 tuna and later 2 wahoo We will be back and staying in those lovely wooden studios, made by Phil on the beach front.

“Great time!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Went out with Wayne and Phil, Both awesome guys... Caught 3 decent sized Mahi mahi, which was abit of a buzz watching 2 of the guys in our group fighting to bring these fishes into the boat. Had a marlin catch on but ended up losing it which was abit of a bummer! Other than that I would deffinately give these guys a go. They're soo friendly, helpful and informative. Also waynes wife prepared a yummy lunch for us as well which was an extra bonus. Well done guys keep up the great work!!!

“Back for Seconds and Thirds - Awesome...!!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Wayne and Glennis you are the ultimate hosts, catching fish is just a bonus. Took a party of 6 and Papa Joe fishing for a 70th Birthday celebration and the birthday boy Frank caught a Mahimahi. Glennis you put on a lovely lunch and Wayne is a good skipper. The group enjoyed the local knowledge of Papa Joe and it was very entertaining. We have been out previously on "Speede Gas" with Phil on the wheel and he's just as good now as a deckie. We will definitely be back again and again.

“Gone fishing !”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We used WaHoo Charters in 2011 , Phil was an excellent host. We went out the day of my birthday unfortunately we didn't catch any fish not though lack of trying just wasn't the day for it but we did have an awesome day thanks Phil. They also provided very fresh sammies & chilled bottled water.

* Please note the "when did we visit" is wrong but can't change it, it only allows a 12mth pick this should be changed.
