‘Reliance 1’ is a well maintained modern 10 metre aluminium boat built for serious fishing and has barbecue and toilet amenities on board.
The owner and your charter skipper ‘Tomo” Welcome’s you aboard his 10 metre charter boat ‘Reliance 1’ and ‘Kaikoura Fishing Tours’. Catering from the novice fisherman to the experienced angler, providing fishing adventures into the rich marine life of the Kaikoura coastal waters from just a couple of hours fishing to full day charters for up to 8 anglers. Plenty of fishing deck space and providing top quality bait and Penn and Shimano tackle.
Our main catch and target species is Blue Cod, Hapuka also known as groper, Trumpeter, Tarakihi and Sea Perch and on our return back to Kaikoura we lift our crayfish pots that have been put down at the start of the fishing trip so hopefully a bonus crayfish to take home. All fish caught is filleted and bagged ready for cooking or you can elect to release your fish that you have caught.
We like to protect our fisheries and return all fish that are too small or breeding stock so our fish stocks can continue to be plentiful for future generations.
During your fishing trip we will experience numerous species of pelagic sea birds and it is not uncommon to sight some of Kaikoura’s famous renowned marine life, whales, dolphins and seals whilst fishing, with a backdrop of the Kaikoura ranges and coastal sea views ………. Kaikoura is an amazing place!
