Touchwood Fishing Charters

We provide a full service fishing experience, catering to novices through to experts. Our awesome crew will bait your hooks, remove the fish and on the way back in and we will fillet and skin the catch, so you can literally sit back and fish. We provide all the fishing gear, bait, ice, tea and coffee. We target Tarakihi, Snapper, Kingi and Hapuka.

We offer full day and half day private charters, ideal for work functions and a great way to spend the day with family and friends. We have a full gas oven onboard and can provide a BBQ if required and we do have a toilet and shower onboard. Can't get a group together?
