Auckland to Northland, Family, Environmental Fishing


We offer cruising and fishing charters to suit your needs, whether it's a full day or half day of cruising, fishing, swimming around the Hauraki  gulf, or Tutakaka Coastline, we'll do our best to make sure you have a memorable time.

Important notes about our charters

We take up to 7 guests on full and half-day trips
Drinking is allowed, however, we don't condone excessive drinking for your and our safety.
Usually, half-day cruises don't allow enough time for fishing.
Full day includes a minimum of 2 hours of fishing and includes all gear, ice, berley, and bait.

Fishing is totally weather permitting, as much as we'd like to control it, there are limitations!  i.e. we do not fish in difficult conditions.
However, if the clients want to anchor up, fish, swim, and BBQ all at the same time, then this is no problem
Half Day Charters
Half-day price including GST $1495.00
Our half day charters are 4 hours, either morning or afternoon sessions, Audacious is a fast launch so we can cover a lot of ground as long as we've got good sea conditions.
Typically these charters are within the bounds of Waiheke to Tiri islands, they don't usually allow enough time for fishing, unless its really in close around Rangitoto island or inner harbour.

A BBQ and fishing is always possible in good conditions, that said our clients always have lots of fun aboard.

Have a chat to our team to discuss your needs and we'll do our best to accomodate you.

Full Day Charters
Full-day price including GST $2524.00
Full-day charters offer a great scope of the Hauraki Gulf, we have a number of beautiful locations we can reach within a day.
From the back of Waiheke Island and the firth of Thames to the outer gulf and back of Tiri Island.

Fishing is definitely on the cards, and usually, we've got a minimum of 2 hours fishing as well as swimming and BBQ and cruising, taking in the many beautiful sights of our gulf.

Everything is weather dependant, but talk to us and we'll put a plan  together .

Fishing report Audatious , Iv been out with captain Matt many times now and they are my preferred charter as the boat is so spacious clean and tidy and has so many options for fishing 🎣, You don't even feel the big waves as the boat is made for any weather conditions and gets you out there fast no probs 👍, The food made by the crew is as good as mum's cooking and captain Matt is always bringing out cheese boards and fancy snacks and drinks for the clients to try ( no hungry people on this boat 😉), He deffently makes you feel like a VIP 😁, Me and my fishing buddies would definitely recommend Audatious for a day charter or overnighter , which we did and found the crew who knew the fishing areas like the back of there hand and had the funniest sence of humour , heaps of GD fish enough to share around even ! And had great time all round even saw the dolphins and whales on our cruise out there absolutely amazing experience thanks guys 👍

Yesterday (Sunday 15th December 2019) we went out on Audacious with Matt and Chris. Both had awesome attitudes, were keen to get us on to the fish and gave expert advice. Chris was right there when you had a tangle or a fish on the line, or if something ate part of your line altogether. The food they provided was simple, yet good quality and delicious. Everyone had their choice of beverage and the rods we hired were in good condition. The boat has everything you could want or need, beds, a flush toilet with a very generous sized bathroom, kitchen facilities, lounge and dining space, plus an upstairs area to relax and watch the view whilst cruising to your destination. We were fortunate enough to have a group of friendly dolphins playing alongside us too. We went with a group of 11 and that was probably a perfect number. We caught snapper, a shark and a bait fish. BONUS we all went home with snapper for dinner too! Our next fishing charter I will definitely be phoning Matt again. Thanks Matt and Chris for a great day out for our social club at BJ Ball Papers.

Amazing time with Skipper Matt and the Audacious crew. Matt was always going to deliver on the promise of finding us the target fish species. Great company and unforgettable experiences.

We had a great time, caught heaps of fish. Mad day, lots of fun with great boat. Went all over the place out wide, hunting the fish. Took us 4 hiurs to fine them and bang, onto them. No bait either, so no horrible smell

A great weekend at the Barrier - Thanks skipper. Loved the bait versus jig/soft bait competition. Bait still rules supreme haven taken the two top snapper spots as evidenced in your photos. Looking forward to the next trip out.
