What you'll do

I will meet you in central Auckland and we will drive to Sandspit, 1.5 hours north of Auckland, where we will catch a water-taxi and travel for 30 minutes over to Kawau Island. The water-taxi will drop us off at our private wharf directly in front of the house. We will then have a cup of tea or coffee while we gather our fishing gear. We will then walk to a fishing location which I will decide on depending on the weather and the tides. The walk can take up to 1.5 hours one-way depending on where I choose to take you. The wharf and bush trails are not available or easily accessible to the general public unless you have the knowledge.
If your partner or family do not wish to come for the walk they can spend the day at the house relaxing and exploring the surrounding bush and coast.
After fishing for 4 to 6 hours we will return to the house, fillet our fish, clean up the fishing gear and then catch a water-taxi back to Sandspit. A hot shower and beverage is available at the house.

Where you'll be

Depending on the weather conditions and tides, and the preferences of the group, we will either fish directly off the wharf or walk easy to moderate trails through beautiful bush and beaches to remote and secluded fishing locations.

Things to know

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 5 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

More tips

Land based fishing is also good in winter when the sun is not so bright. Catching fish cannot be guaranteed but I will do my very best for you and we will have a fantastic day. We have a large fridge for food storage while we are fishing.

What to bring

A good pair of walking shoes or boots. The trails are clay & slippery if wet and we may walk on the rocks of the coast or down a slope.

A hat and sun screen. Rain wear as a precaution.
