Big groups or small, families or friends, experienced anglers or first-timers - Akura has the ingredients to make your Rarotonga fishing charter the most memorable and exciting part of your whole holiday. We are one of the longest operating charters boats and fishing is our passion! With our helpful crew, you don't need to know anything about angling to land a delicious dinner - and we'll fillet the fish for you so that all you need to do is fire up the grill! Savour the spectacular views of the Cook Islands while you wait for the fish to start biting - and you won't be waiting long. With our top-quality gear, Captain George's 25 years of experience and certified crew, you're getting the best possible Rarotonga game fishing trip.

Akura is a purpose-built 40-foot vessel with twin 330hp diesel inboards- perfect for wedding parties and large groups. Akura is kitted with top quality equipment in brands like Shimano and Penn. We have all the onboard facilities you need to cruise in style and fish in comfort with a fully working toilet and comfortable seating. Want to customize your fishing experience? We also have a 25 foot vessel, "Te Manga", that offers a variety of fishing methods including fishing down, drop stone fishing, reef casting, spear fishing and more. Check us out on the ITM fishing show with Matt Watson and see the action! All charters include sandwiches and waters- all you need is some sun screen and your lucky fishing hat!

Great trip out with these guys. Staff were friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. They ran the boat like clockwork and had it down to a science. We caught a couple of good sized yellow fin tuna and a big bull Mahi Mahi. The boat was well equipped with a toilet and plenty of seating. All the safety gear: radios, life... More

What a great success we had on the Akura fishing charters. One of the only requests for our holiday was to go game fishing. There were 4 of us that went on the charter and what a great time we had, Eva was knowledgable about where we were going and why we were fishing in certain spots. He was explaining... More

My husbands only request for the honeymoon was to catch a Mahi Mahi - Akura certainly granted his wishes and we were very happy with the trip despite myself being sick over the side the whole entire time! (apologies to the lovely Canadian couple who were on our charter). Great day all in all and would definately book again, we... More

I've been on fishing charters in the past, and the Akura crew was one of my favorites. Great time on the water, and the crew were very knowledgable and personable. Caught a wahoo, and can't wait to come back to Rarotonga for another Akura charter with delicious fresh fish.

We hired the 26 footer with four of us on for the day ... had an excellent day on the water! Unfortunately the big one got away (hey that's how fishing rolls!) but still had a great time! The crew are awesome! We would highly recommend Akura....simply for the knowledge and hospitality of the Akura team! Great work guys ...... More
