Kerry Gregory

Bay of Islands long term resident and legendary fisherman Kerry Gregory has been a part of the Epic team for nearly 2 years

If you visit the local Russell Swordfish club you will see our Skipper Kerry on the walls as he holds several of the local records and can boast some serious fish. With decades of experience as a local fishing charter captain you will be in good hands. As well as being a great fisherman Kerry will also entertain and inform you with his knowledge of the local history and geography.

The Bay of Islands is an exciting fishery and accessible on an Epic Adventures fishing charter from the main Wharf’s at Russell and Paihia. or Waitangi (by special arrangement).
There are many fishing options in the waters around the Bay of Islands, ranging from shallow snapper fishing to the deeper water pins and knolls for kingfish and the occasional hapuka. Further out there are the world famous marlin options made famous by Zane Grey last century. There are still plenty of bill fish around and Capt. Kit on KOROKING can show you where!

Bay of Islands…. is EPIC!

5 Stars!

These guys are hilarious, knowledgeable, and damn good at catching fish. My wife and I left the boat exhausted and sore from reeling in massive snapper and king fish all day. If you’re coming to NZ in search of a deep sea fishing charter, look no further. I can’t recommend these guys enough, especially Captain Ryan of “Church.” Tight lines y’all Timothy

I can’t recommend these guys enough

Awesome day. Thanks guys, great fun – good workout!! Callum


Skilled skipper dropped us straight on top of the fish- all we had to do was reel them in (easier said than done lol) Thanks Owen, thanks Epic, we’ll definitely be back soon. Gwynneth

Wonderful day out!

One of the best fishing trips I’ve ever been on. Both Chase and Owen got us onto the fish no worries at all without any fuss and made for a truely grouse trip. Cheers Oscar

One of the BEST!

Thank you so much captain Kit! You did a well-done job this last Sunday! Unfortunately, I got smashed by a giant Kingfish, I hope next time it will be different!

Thanks Kit

What can I say what an awesome trip this was ….never a dull moment I have been on a lot of charters but nothing can compare with this would recommend this to anyone that likes fishing Ryan …skipper of church is an awesome bloke
