Owen Wills

Owen aka bush billy aka Capt Owen is quickly becoming Epic’s most well liked and well-known skipper. Sharp witted and intensely focused on getting results. Owen’s armed with an arsenal of one liners which encourage you to “get a wind on” and helps you see the funny side of being slammed against the rail on a big Kingy. All this together, coupled with the fact Owen skippers the most advanced Senator in the fleet, makes a trip out with Owen an unbeatable adventure.

Owen started out with Epic as a land based specialist and when the chance came up to get out on a boat the opportunity was quickly snapped up. Owen’s skills and take action style off the rocks quickly converted to results on the boat, producing wicked trips and big fish for his clients with great knowledge on both sides of the Coromandel.


KAOS is our newest Senator, a RH770.
It’s a beast! KAOS is fully pimped out with the very latest in SIMRAD marine electronics, Honda BF 250 Engine, the very best rods and reels from Jigstar, Maxel and Shimano.
Standard day departure out of Whitianga running to Aldies, Curvier and the Mercs and fishing four people chasing kingfish and anything else that shows up that pulls string!

Owen knew his stuff….

Thanks Capt. Ryan on ‘Church’ – great skipper, got me onto a KINGFISH of a lifetime!! Pulled the boat from the rocks as soon as I hooked up & gave great advice on pulling it in! We landed it & now I’ve got some spectacular memories to cherish (along with great pics) for a long time to come!! Highly recommend & would go again in a heartbeat – cheers Ryan / you the man

Capt. Ryan the man!

I wholeheartedly recommend Epic Adventure’s boat, KoroKing under the guidance of Skipper Kit. I didn’t get my snapper, but instead caught a 15kg Kingfish on my snapper-rig. I was jelly for 10 minutes after that. Thanks Kit and Epic Adventure. Chris

Thanks Kit and Epic Adventure

Was a sick days fishing, Captain Kit kept us on the fish all day, this is a must do experience, Joel

Cheers Capt. KIT

Awesome day guys!! really enjoyed it thankyou so much!! Chelsea

Really enjoyed it

Was lucky enough to be aboard CHURCH today, Ryan is the man! Put us on the fish every single drop, and didn’t waste any time to chase them. Over 20 solid kings and not a single fish dropped or reefed all day. Legend, ill be back.

Ryan is the man!

Fantastic skippers who really know what they are doing – if you’re after huge Kingies these are the guys! Rob
