First class fishing trip with Wildcat. We had a fantastic day fishing on the Tasman sea with Skipper Leigh. He was 100% on all counts. We caught over 8 species, Blue Cod, Snapper, Rass, Terakihi, shark, even an Octopus that was swiftly returned to the ocean. Our catch was cleaned and filleted by our professional Skipper Leigh. Then on our... More

We returned for our second charter after having such a great experience last year. On the trip out to the fishing grounds we were escorted by a large pod of Dolphins, something you don't get every day according to the skipper Leigh. We had great expectations of catching our share of Snapper and Blue Cod and we were not disappointed... More

A fantastic day fishing for myself and my young son. Leigh and Jack were friendly and helpful and seemed determined that we all had a good time and caught plenty of fish. Will do it again next time we are in Golden Bay.

Absolutely loved this fishing experience. Leigh was great, not all of us were experienced so he was patient and explained things well, helped us set up and filleted the fish we caught at the end of the trip. We caught all sorts of different fish from blue cod to snapper, king fish, sharks and a barracuda! Absolutely beautiful setting, watching... More

Highly recommend the fishing trip with Leigh. He has many years experience boating and fishing. Everything was set up for you, in fact you did not have to lift a finger. As soon as we cast out we got fish. Blue cod, king fish, snapper were some of our delights. At the end of the trip Leigh would fillet the... More

We stayed for two nights here, and the accommodation was reasonable, but clearly not new. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was good. We were surprised that servicing the room didn't include making the bed. There was no hairdryer, but there may have been one to borrow, if we'd asked. The cooking options were good, and Nescafe coffee was... More

We had a great trip out with the skipper (Leigh). He was really knowledgeable about the local fishing area which helped us get quite a successful catch;certainly enough for plenty of dinners. He seemed to enjoy the trip as much as we did and was always ready to assist. We were certainly made to feel as if it was 'our'... More

After getting off to a slow start we had a very successful fishing trip catching a 5kg shark among other things. Really good skipper v. professional with regards to health and safety. We were lucky it was quiet so there were only 2 of us on the trip. All our catches were filleted for us so we could take them... More
