Ryan Churches

Epic is super stoked to have Ryan join its ranks. Ryan has been fishing the Coromandel waters for as long as he can remember.
With a passion for all kinds of fishing whether it be lures under birds, stray-lining for big snapper or dropping livies and jigs for big kings! Ryan puts in his all to get people onto that trophy fish!

Like all of Epics skippers fishing runs deep in their blood, Ryan is no exception and is often out on the boat honing his skills always searching for that horse on his days off!

CHURCH is a versatile Bluefin 665 with a stable 2.5 beam and comfortable seating making her a perfect vessel for chasing kingies and big game fish.

GREAT DAY out yesterday on the Coromandel….lots of Kingfish….great skipper called Owen knew his stuff…. Peter

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

These are the guys!
