Kayak fishing is commonly accepted as the fastest and easiest way to fish. The inherent stability of our sit-on-top fishing kayaks along with their self-draining scupper holes makes it virtually impossible to capsize. Kayak fishing is not only an exciting experience it has been proven to be a highly productive form of fishing.
Whether its drift kayak fishing, fishing around rocks, offshore fishing, or using your fishing kayak to set a long line and sit back and catch fish to your heart’s content. Our kayaks include retractable rudders which allow you to drift with the tide and regain manoeuvrability when required. This flexibility means you can paddle into nooks and crannies where even a fishing boat cannot go.
Best of all fishing with the magnificent backdrop of the Kaikoura ranges and the craggy cliff faces creates an excellent experience all round. There is also the sheer thrill and excitement of landing that big one off a fishing kayak.
Our instructors and guides know all the best spots on the Kaikoura coastline and Peninsula, so be sure to ask what we can do to help make your fishing experience one you will both enjoy and treasure.
We’ll do our best to help you get a catch, fishing is a sport, so the strike rate and amount of fish landed can vary day-to-day, and angler-to-angler but it’s still a lot of fun and worth the adventure!
