Kite fishing is one of the most fun and effective ways to catch big fish! You let the kite take your baited hook straight to the fish, way beyond the breaking waves. Join in for a Kite Fishing Adventure at a beautiful beach location outside of Auckland. Take home delicious fish and great memories!
- Transfers from your Auckland city accommodation
- Hot/cold drinks
- The opportunity to have a swim if you choose to
Learn more about the fish that can be caught in the beautiful Auckland region, which type of bait is good for which types of fish and why certain baits and fishing methods are unsuitable or suitable for kite fishing. You'll take a seat in the luxury 4WD and be taken through some spectacular scenery to a great beach, where you can relax and enjoy yourself. You will stop at some particularly scenic places so that you can take some photos, then take a short beach walk of up to 30 minutes to get to the fishing spot, depending on the day’s wind and tide conditions. There, you will unpack and prepare your gear and get it up to 2km out to sea. Then, finally, you will use the kite to silently pull the hooks further out than you could ever go by casting with a fishing rod. When you retrieve the line and kite, watch out for fish splashing in the water as the kite comes closer! Snapper, Kingfish, Gurnard, Kahawai, Trevally, John Dory and even sharks can be caught during this great day out. You can keep any fish that are within legal limits, and if you don’t know how to fillet or prepare your fish, your friendly guide can show you how it's done!
