Far North Fishing Charters over the Bar to the Tasman Sea

far north fishing charters with Hokianga Express Charters

This is one of Northland’s true marine playgrounds and we invite you to come on a fun and exciting fishing charter with Hokianga Express.

You’ll get a hands-on, personalised fishing experience like no other. Your skipper Pete and his crew are passionate, lifelong fishermen so no matter your experience with fishing or on the water, you’re in good hands.

Beyond the majestic sand dunes and into the ocean, the sea life is healthy and plentiful.  It’s not unusual to see dolphins swimming alongside the boat, seals lounging on the beach, or huge marlins feeding on shoals of small fish. On some lucky trips, we even get the occasional whale sighting!

Hokianga Express is licenced and certified for fishing charters out over the Bar, to the Tasman Sea, and we can take you fishing for New Zealand’s most popular catch – snapper, kahawai and trevally. Just so you know, our catch rates for huge snapper are excellent!  Just 15 minutes from the jetty, you can even find striped marlin, yellow fin tuna, kingfish, and giant bass.

While you’re in the area, why not sandboard the Hokianga dunes or take a van tour through our scenic region.
