The waters of the Coromandel and Bay of Islands offer some of the most enjoyable and extreme fishing on the planet. From massive Snapper and Kingfish to Marlin and Mahi-mahi to name a few. Epic has built its reputation on the plentiful fishing grounds between Curvier Island and the Alderman islands. With an expanding team we’re expanding our fishing horizons now from the Alderman Islands right up to Great Barrier Island and down into the Firth of Thames and recently we launched in the Bay of Islands out of Russell/ Paihia.
Respect is paid to our fishing grounds at all times, our crews consistently explore and scout new king fish locations to ease as much pressure on fish stocks as possible. We have lower limit allowances for our crews of just one Kingfish per client. With intimate knowledge of breeding and behavioural habits of the fish that live in and pass through our waters, crews fish mindfully of each individual species. Sustainability is at the forefront of our business model and we aim to protect a healthy fishery for future generations. We have worked closely with NIWA and assist where we can in any research to ascertain accurate breeding and migratory stats of New Zealand Kingfish and other species.
Epic Adventures now operates fishing charters out of several locations across the upper North Island of New Zealand.
- Whitianga, Coromandel (Kaos, Epic and Church vessels)
- Russell/ Paihia, Bay of Islands (Koroking vessel)
Whitianga is the tourism centre of the Coromandel with some world class accommodation and attractions such as the Lost Spring day spa complete with thermal fed pools with waterfalls and massage rooms perched up in huts amongst the trees (great for the ladies while the boys are out on the boat!) lots of fun in around town for the kids too including fun zone, animal parks, mini putt, swimming holes and paint-ball all just minutes drive from town.
Whitianga is also home to Mercury bay and the hub of recreational fishing activity on the Coromandel peninsula too. It’s position half way up the peninsula make it an attractive home base to reach a vast range of pumping fishing spots and puts you in short driving distance of world famous beaches and bays such as hot water beach and cathedral cove, as well as some world class bush walks also easily accessible from here. Whitianga boasts a bit more night life with restaurants and bars open late.
Russell/Paihia, Bay of Islands
Our Coroking vessel has a new home and has been re-christened to Koroking. Kororareka is the maori name for Russell her home port.
The Bay of Islands is a fishermans dream, with deep blue water very close to port, heaps of accessible pinnacles, deep holes for Puka and Bass and shallow estuary snapper fishing options. The small towns of Russell and Paihia offer great accomodation and nightlife options.
