​​​​​​​Instructions for Seabird Charters Trips.

​​​​​​​All fishing gear and bait is supplied and the fish caught are all filleted and ready for cooking. Also, the crew and skipper will take fish off the hooks for you (if necessary) and untangle line tangles. 

The boat leaves from Port Nelson promptly at 0700hrs (7am) and arrives back at the port berth at 1800hrs (6pm) Trip cancellations will be notified to you (by email / text message / telephone) if the trip is cancelled or postponed for any reason. 

After trip confirmation, cancellations will require full payment or finding a substitute for your place. Early notification of cancellations to me would be useful for me  to invite persons from a waiting list. 

​​​​​​​Fish in this area (Stephens Passage/Port Hardy) are Tarakihi, Snapper, Maori Chief, Blue Cod, Trevalley Kingfish etc. Numbers for the trip are limited, (10 fishers for one day fishing trips) and allocated on a first in / first served basis.

At times fishing is carried out around the East coast of d'Urville Island & about the Rangitoto Islands, travelling via French Pass. This is usually because of a Westerly wind making fishing conditions on the West side of the island uncomfortable.
