Having been on a number of charters throughout NZ I would expect a little bit of customer service from the skipper and his deck hand (his wife). I was reminded of being back at school from the moment we arrived. was good to know that the fish we caught - being the paying customer received their quota- but also the... More

It's interesting to read the other reviews now after we spent the day out yesterday... And I have to say if you can chill out and go with the flow, you'll have a great day for a great deal. $75/adult, $40/child for 6 hours (including rod, bait and having a share of the catch filleted to take home). Take your... More

"We were 15 minutes early at least for our trip and the first to climb on the Toa Tai.

Specially from the captain.... More

We were recommended this charter by a family member who went out with them last month and loved it. We brought 2 teenagers and our elderly father who was visiting from Uk. Although Colin (captain) might appear a little grumpy, he was actually fine once set off. He helped with everything and frequently joked and smiled with us all! Helen... More

Unfortunately we had our christmas function with this charter. It is wonderful to be able to get around our beautiful Marlborough Sounds no matter what type of weather you have. When we turned up, we had no safety brief if there was to be an accident of any sort, no rules whilst on board you are to just read these... More
