OUR WATERS AROUND NEW ZEALAND

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.

Tiaki


We are part of the Tiaki movement – guardians of the environment

Sustainability

Respect is paid to our fishing grounds at all times, our crews consistently explore and scout new kingfish 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 the breeding and behavioral 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.

Rubbish

Zero tolerance for rubbish from our charters or customers. Rubbish bins are provided onboard and skippers are encouraged to stop and pick up any observed floating rubbish at sea

Pollution

Vessels are not fueled at the wharf, without exception the boats are put onto trailers and refuled at the local garages in Whitianga

Epic Adventures now operates fishing charters out of several locations across the upper North Island of New Zealand.

  1. Whitianga, Coromandel (Kaos, Koroking vessels)
  2. Russell/ Paihia, Bay of Islands (Big Fish BOI – partner of epic)
  3. Amodeo Bay, Coromandel (Anglers Lodge – partner of epic)
  4. Hauraki Gulf and great Barrier (Fish n Dips – partner of epic)

WHITIANGA

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. Its position halfway up the peninsula makes 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 nightlife with restaurants and bars open late.

 

OUR GEAR

Just to make your trip that little bit more EPIC. We provide as part of the charter fee the very best fishing rods and reels available, We use jigstar rods and maxel reels for overheads and the best spin gear from Daiwa (Saltiga 6500). That way we know with confidence that we have given you the angler the best possible chance to land your personal best fish on an Epic Adventures fishing charter.

OUR BOATS

All Epic Boats are from kiwi boat builder Senator. We have tried several others but Senator boats provide the most stable, and comfortable platform for our guests. We highly recommend you check them out if you are considering buying your own boat.
