“Highlight of trip to Great Barrier”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

My 2 sons and I have just returned from 6 days on Great Barrier Island. We were fortunate enough to enjoy a late afternoon/evening trip with Chris. What an amazing trip. The boys ( 12 and 16) caught lots of fish, with my youngest son being lucky enough to catch a huge 10 LB snapper.
Chris was welcoming, great with kids and runs a good operation.
My eldest son has a balance problem, but found the boat to be stable and sat well in the sea. There was plenty of space.
We were fortunate to have a BBQ cooked for us which we were really grateful for. A truely great experience.
Facilities were clean and tidy.
We will remember this trip for a long time. We have done lots of fishing trips over the years, but none as great as this.
