  • Captain Kit really knows his stuff, went out with a mate targeting big game and Kingies on live baits, a thoughtfully enjoyable day out with a great captain on a great boat.
    Plus Russell itself is really fantastic spot – great beach over the hill.
    Would recommend to all.

    • Northlands best fishing charter!
  • We had a fabulous day out fishing with Epic Adventures and Captain Kit. He was really committed to helping us catch our first Kingis. All five on the boat including the women caught fish and it was just such an amazing and positive experience for us all. If you want to catch Kingis we can highly recommend Epic Adventures and Captain Kit. Maree

    • Owen is a legend
  • My hats off to Owen for being such a diligent, knowledgeable and energetic skipper. He shared his knowledge willingly and pragmatically to keep the fish rolling in and clients satisfied. I saw the 3 young fellows that shared the trip with me, on the following day at Hot Water Beach. They too had many approving comments about Owen and his patient, and savvy guidance on making their trip successful. We’re all settled in back in Oregon, trying to catch up on our lives. Thanks again for your assistance, and your good client communication skills. Much appreciated. Bob Claypool

    • Hats Off to Owen!
  • Wahlgren Family, It exceeded our expectations. The unit we were in had everything that we required. It was clean and comfortable. Could not think of anything that would be required further. The property itself is beautiful. It is well maintained, clean and has a very friendly atmosphere. What you have done so far makes it an enjoyable place to stay and access this amazing area. The fishing charter out of the lodge in Anglers Lodge II gave us an experience we will never forget. Caught the biggest King fish I have landed. Chris Dabb is an assets you do not want to loose. His enthusiasm about what he does is unbelievable. I could not believe his knowledge about the local area and the fish he targets. It seemed he was just as devastated as I was when I lost a big fish at Channel Island. Nothing better than a fresh made coffee delivered to the unit every morning prior to our trips. Thanks for one of the best fishing trips I have been on. Keep up the good work. See you next year. Gavin Hurtado

    • Exceeded our expectations
  • Such a good day, and our skipper Owen is a legend. We will definitely be back! Lilly

    • 5 Star!
  • Hi Epic, Just a note to thank Ryan Church for taking my three sons and I for a great day’s fishing. He handled a challenge with a leaking live bait box; with some brain-storming, we then used the fish bag. The team work between the Epic boats was good to hear, as they identified live bait locations and general catch banter. Ryan was friendly, helpful and competent and we look forward to heading out for our third kingfishing day next year.
    Regards Robert, Jeremy, James and Richard

    • Great Days Fishing
  • Good day to Emily and Captain Chase ! It was a wonderful experience as promised ! Team is very reactive : we had a defective spinning reel and solution was found very quickly on site with another epic adv. boat and KINGFISH was there as promised : the next boat caught a big stripe marlin that could have been ours but this is fishing !!! Congratulations to the whole team
    Envoyé de mon

    • Thanks Epic
  • Hi, I recently chartered Church for a day fishing for Kingfish with 3 mates. I had been a year earlier and when I returned home I told my friends of the great fishing and charter I had with Epic. I was worried that I talked it up so much that anything less would be disappointing for my friends. Well I didn’t have to worry, we had a hot bite for hours and the fishing lived up to all the hype and expectations. I would like to thank Ryan who was a great captain who knows how to fish and he joined in our jokes and banter, it was as like I had 4 mates on the boat, we all had the best day on a charter – ever. LES

    • the best day on a charter – ever
  • Please pass on our thanks to the skipper for the great days fishing. The wife and the three kids loved it and they are still talking about it now. Sadly they are still talking about me being so sea sick ? however they all want to say thank you to you and your team for a fantastic trip. Best regards Nathan

    • Please pass on our thanks
  • Great time whole Kit and cabudle. Target species. Lots of fun. mark

    • Thanks Kit
  • Epic adventures sure does live up to it’s name, had a fantastic time and a great experience. Captain Owen was great and very knowledgeable and put us on to the big guns on the first cast, Feeling very sore today, Highly recommended and can’t wait to do it all again. Craig

    • As the name says!
  • Been waiting a very long time to fish for a kingfish in nz so I wanted to use a company that could deliver! I wasn’t disappointed. Epic couldn’t have been more helpful getting me a trip out of bay of islands aboard Koro king with Captain Kit! Me and my wife had a incredible day and one I will always remember, not only did we see dolphins and stopped to view them on the way out but we were then taken through the hole in the rock which we loved before we both caught our target species! Unfortunately we lost 4 big kingfish but landed a few smaller ones and some big snapper for tea! My wife doesn’t fish but by the time Captain Kit had gave her a crash course in kingfishing she was hooking more than me! Couldn’t praise him more for the patience he had with me and my wife and his knowledge was second to none! Thank you for a day I will not forget and I’ll be back soon as return to nz! Epic adventures.. sure is!!! cheers Jason

    • Epic…Sure is!
  • It was perfect from the start to finish. Owen was amazing. Thanks EPIC

    • Mark
  • If you are in the Coromandel looking for a charter and If you want serious fish with incredibly talented skippers, then EPIC should be your choice. We have been lucky enough to get Owen the last two times we have been out and he has put us on big Kingies within minutes of getting outside both times. Its kind of funny watching others chasing Owen around as they struggle to find fish!! Jeff

    • You’d be MAD to book anyone else!
  • thanks to the team at epic for the day out on the water hunting those kings ? . was the best day out fishing ive had with the boys in a really lone time ? . use have a really good team . chase you are a legend dude got as on the kings hard and fast and made the day so much fun thanks again. use will see me one day soon. Jonathon

    • Chase U R a legend
  • Our day out with Epic was in fact truly ‘Epic’! Chase our skipper was impressive all around. A young skipper who seemingly out fished all the other boats in our vicinity on the day. Being a fisherman myself and seeing the way he put us on the fish and managed multiple hook ups with these beasts was amazing. 17 kingis caught on the day and we smoked 5, just enough to keep our families well feed for Christmas! I’ll be back for sure. Adam (kiwi living in China).

    • Kiwi in China
  • Would just like to say a huge thank you to Ryan, it was tough start to the day finding it hard to get on the livebaits and then technical problems with the gps, but Ryan dealt with this professionally and although a tough start he got us back to shore to have the gps fixed,and back out there in no time to pick up some more live baits and onto some cracking kingy fishing. I found him very knowledgeable and good company. An all round epic experience and I will  definitely be coming back for another go! Hope you all have a good Christmas and New Years, If I could have a copy of the photos sent to me that would be great.Tight lines, Thanks, Tom

    • Huge thank you
  • Perfect day out, the skipper was excellent, food provided delicious and caught a lot of fish.

Matthew

    • Got my PB
  • Was a great two day trip. It was real windy but always felt safe with Capt Owen doing a great job. Cheers Michael

    • Great two days!
  • Amazing, Professional, World Class Fishing. Cheers George

    • Amazing!
  • My 11yo son and I had more than an EPIC adventure aboard with Skipper Owen out of Whitianga, Coromandel, NZ. We got to land and keep our first ever Kingfish catches ever! My first was unbelievably caught whilst livebait catching on a Sabiki Jig!! My only worry was not losing my son overboard when a decent Kingie hit. Together we could not make and ground and lost it to the reef. Oh well, kingies and snapper fillets to bring back home will spread the joy amongst family and friends back home in Australia. This will have to be an annual event. Looking forward to trying some overnight trips! Thanks once again epic adventures and Emily in the office for getting all the paperwork done.

    • C Jen Ch’ng
  • Chase and Tim were great, very professional and friendly. They set us up to catch big Kingfish and Snapper. An awesome day out had by all. Sam

The weather wasn’t terrific but the boat was stable, rode well and setup perfectly for the task. The Coromandel is a beautiful place. Thanks for a great day.

    • Ben
  • Highly recommend epic adventure. They whole team make you feel welcome and really put you on the spot for the catch. Me and my brother went fishing with capt Owen, he’s a great asset to the team and full of knowledge and a great laugh.

    • Thanks Chase!
  • Our day with Epic was full of expectation with probablility of kingfish and possibility of puka. A quick stop to fill the livebait tanks (1/2 hour of sabiki fun). Off to the kingfish site.
    The skipper had the gear prepped in minutes and instructions on how and what to do. Easy?
    First drift – 2 rods loaded – boom! Quick measure and photo shoot. Wow, that was easy. Nothing huge but a good test of angler skill and gear. Next minute?
    Woohoo! Grunt & grind! Bigger and better fish. Wicked Kingfish session.
    Puka time. Off to 200m, 30oz sinkers and a good test of Shimano gear especially the Stella and also fisho stamina .5 for 5 – puka landed.
    Mix in a very tasty lunch and a great boat.
    Well worth the drive to Whitianga, good range of accommodation, food & watering holes.
    Cheers to Chase and Epic Adventures, Whitianga. Waru

    • Cheers to Chase and Epic Adventures
  • With a early start on Thursday at 4am to make a way to whitianga from tuakau auckland we were surprised to make it there by 6. We stopped at the bakery to grab some lunch and waited down at the Mariana/boat ramp for the arrival of our boat. With a short meet and greet we headed out to catch our live bait. With our live bait tank full of yellowtail mackerel we were ready to head wide to catch the famous yellow tail kingfish. About 50mins later we were ready to drop our first baits with a quick tutorial from our skipper we were ready to get fishing . I did not expect to be railed by the first fish of the day that officially weighed 15.6kgs my new personal best .and absolutely wreaked my arms for the rest of trip � with every drop of bait we were hooked on to hungry kingfish which actually made you nervous because your arms are actually so tired from fighting them in the first hour of the trip lol . We tried another spot and caught some snapper and pink moamoa to chuck in the bin . With a bin full of fish and some sore battered arms we headed back in . To our surprise our skipper stopped off and showed us some hidden caves and a little bit of sight seeing Before we were back on land and absolutely buggered from a hard days fishing . Thank you so much  Epic Adventures! Two days later my arms and shoulders are still sore haha we will defiantly be back on your boat very soon . Cheers Rhys

    • Absolutely buggered from a hard days fishing
  • What an amazing experience with Epic we asked our skipper to find us some kingfish and he sure delivered. Embarrassingly enough the kingys were so big and so constant that we ran out of energy and had to target a smaller species.
    Can’t recommend mad max highly enough. Great day on the water.

    • Amazing!
  • Epic Charters is one slick operation, the boys were pumped after watching new pictures pop up on Facebook everyday before our trip thinking it was to good to be true but it was true the boys arms were pumped after work out from some good solid Kingi’s then onto some Bluenose two drops two double hook ups and we had some very solid Bluenose we definitely be back. Cheers Epic you definitely live up to your name. Matthew

    • Epic Review
  • Hands down best charter going round. Captain chase was personable and not to intrusive like other charters, for the four days that we were booked he consistently put us on the fish and when we were to tired to chase the big stuff he gladly took us out to chase smaller snapper.  Highly highly recommended. Mohammed Mohtadi.

    • Hands down winner
  • Wouldn’t go with any other charter in NZ or Aust, 4 x so far with Epic each time has produced the goods.Thanks for an awesome trip Capt Chase & Capt Tom aka Mad Max.
    We’ll be back again next year.. and the year after that. Troy

    • Keep Coming back!
  • My husband had a fantastic day fishing with Epic! Chase was the Skipper and did a fantastic job getting them on the fish. They caught plenty of fish, including Snapper and Kings to take home. Everything was well done. You won’t go wrong with Epic and/or Chase. Barb

    • Wonderful day
  • I just want to say a massive thank you to Capt Chase for an amazing day fishing out of Whitianga. Capt Chase’s ability to put us on to big kingies was scary!! I can 100% recommend these guys and can’t wait to head back in January for another epic adventure!!! Liam

    • Cheers Capt. Chase!
  • Awesome charter had so much fun with epic adventures on the water with captian Owen will definitely be back for more in the future. Codey

  • Awesome days fishing for 4 boys as a treat for a 60th birthday!
    MadMax at his best ensuring the boys got ‘epic’ Kingis!! Beyond what they expected.
    Thanks for making it a great trip Thomas. Denise

    • Great 60th!
  • Went out with EPIC on Wednesday and it was the best fishing charter i’ve ever been on! Had a brilliant day and our skipper went out of his way to help me catch the fish i wanted. Would definitely recommend this charter! Jason

    • Epic Review
  • Awesome day out – Skipper Owen worked very hard to put them on fish all day. Owen worked hard to keep everyone baited up and the boat clean. Dave was very happy.
    Top tip – ‘no strikey strikey’ ! Highly recommended skipper and charter. Susie

    • no strikey strikey
  • Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the Whitianga crews for making our charter a great day. We fished on board Coroking with the live wire Captain Owen and had a ball. Getting some solid kings and a couple of by catch horse John Dory. Owen worked hard all day and made the charter a great experience. Good quality gear on board. Highly recommended these guys.

    • Sore Arms
  • Epic by name and nature, great boats, great captain (Owen) been out 3 times and loved it…knowledgeable and worth the money!!! Amanda

    • Owen Rocks
  • Had a great day fishing with Chase. Weather was average but we still had an awesome day and landed some wicked fish. Definitely going to book again.
    Thanks.

    • Thanks Chase!
  • I’ve been watching this Charter for some time and the expectations were high. From the second we arrived to the time we left the professionalism of Skipper Owen was very evident. I’ve never seen Kingfish like this let alone caught them. Totally blew me away and left me totally knackered as well fighting Giant Kingfish today. Awesome charter, Awesome skipper, unbeatable service. F%×king awesome! Robbie

    • EPIC : F%×king awesome!
  • ‘Epic’ is an understatement. Just had the best fishing experience ever! Following a disappointing session at the Bay of Islands with another charter, I decided to jump in the campervan and make the 7 hour journey to Whitianger for a king fishing session with EPIC. I’d like to thank both the office and our skipper for fitting me onto the boat on very very short notice (7pm the night before). A quick overview of our day…
    Arrived at the wharf 6:25am and we were out on the water by 6:30am, before any other boat.
    After arriving at our livie collection spot, we caught over 60 livies within 20 minutes and were off to one of EPICs favourite Kingfish havens.
    We got to the spot, circled for 2 minutes, located the fish whilst baiting up.
    First drop, bammmmmm, we were on! This continued without fail for the next 4 to 5 hours where we caught King after King. We caught over 15 solid Kings all between 10 to 20kg. We kept one for dinner with all others being returned to the water to grow fatter and put a smile on another anglers face!
    To top the day off, our skipper took us around for a scenic cruise along the Coromandel Peninsula where we hand fed 15lb monster snapper.
    Being from Sydney, Australia, fishing like this doesn’t exist so if you truly want to have an amazing experience and catch the fish of a lifetime, book in a kingfishing session with Epic !

    Ill definitely be back in the not too distant future.

    • Mehmet : Epic Review
  • Epic by name & epic by nature, that was the trip of a lifetime!! Skipper Owen was awesome and got us onto arm wrenching kings and snapper all day. His knowledge of the area and friendly nature added to an already astounding trip. By the end I couldn’t even reel in another fish I was so exhausted. Thank you so so much Epic, you will see me again!!

    • BJ – Epic Review
  • Epic is definitely an understatement, we hired two Senator boats out of Whitianga and not only was the fishing sublime but the skippers were absolutely passionate about there work and genuine good bastards. We had a young fella called Chase and what he lacked in age he made up for in experience, helpful, courteous, a vast knowledge of the boat and ocean and although we were in reasonably choppy weather we felt extremely safe with Chase.

    I will definitely be back for round two

    • Epic Review – Rob
  • We out with Captain Owen on Coro king and had an awesome day of fishing we couldn’t have asked for a better skipper he had us railed all day on big kingies and snapper.
    We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to catch some big fish and have an awesome time

    • Kevin
  • 5 stars in not enough! 10/10 king fish action. best charter i have ever been on, great set up, great boats, great captains, great locations. sensational. don’t forget to get some of the fish smoked by blinky too. delicious. thanks again, see u next time

    • Epic Review – James
  • Couldn’t have asked for a more Epic day out with the skippers chase and Owen!!! They put us on the fish every drop!!! Think chase was even more annoyed and pissed off then we were if we dropped a fish, just shows there passion for fishing, catching fish and entertaining clients. Superb day lads and we will defs b back for our now annual fishing trip on epic!!! Cheers

    • Brendon
  • Literally the trip of a lifetime yesterday out with Skipper Owen. We covered some serious miles with kingies all the way from the first drop at the bait grounds until pulling up stumps late in the arvo. Absolutely brutal wrestling with plenty of fish from 15-20 kg and my mate scored a 31kg stonker to boot! Owen talked us through the whole thing and offered clear reasons as to every step of the process. Man takes a neat photo too. If you’re reading this and maybe in two minds because of the price, I can say that you will be getting maximum value out of every single one of those dollars. Thanks Epic!

    • Simon
  • My Father in Law was absolutely wrapped with the day, saying it was undoubtedly the best days fishing he’s ever had

    • Don
  • A huge thanks from Jonny, Mike, Brook and myself for your efforts on Jan 2nd! It was awesome to get into the kingis and a great way to start the new year

    • Jonothan
  • The Best manoeuvring of a boat I’ve ever seen, and the tail wrap is sorted and I’m properly connected again. We would not have landed that fish if it wasn’t for the skill, patience and determination of Capt Owen

    • Pete
  • It would have to be one the most enjoyable days out fishing I have had, which was made better by having a skipper who gets into it as well.

    • Simon
  • We had a great time last week on the Coroking. Capt Owen (Obvious) did a great job. ” if you don’t wind.. that fish ain’t coming up”. haha. He was so funny with his one liners.

    • Robert
  • Owen didn’t miss a trick keeping great angles on the fish and driving down onto it to retrieve good line. 1hour10 or so later we have 109kg Stripped Marlin on the deck

    • Pete
  • I hope to be back one day and if so I would definitely book with Epic. I will also be recommending you to anyone who asks.

    • Graeme
  • We have done charters all over the world and this was the best experience we have had so far.

    • Garry
  • Thanks for a fantastic days fishing yesterday, nine kingis, just awesome fishing. Unbelievable.

    • Alan
  • Thanks for a wicked trip, we loved every minute of it! I’m sure Aaron wont forget this birthday in a hurry. Awesome fish, awesome skipper – makes all the difference.

    • Kylie
  • Chase was the skipper for the day. I want to ensure that the owner and managers of Epic understand what an asset they’ve got with this guy. He was outstanding.

    • Stephen
  • I must say that his (Chase’s) maturity belies his age. He was an excellent Skipper who was very clear and concise with his instructions.

    • Graeme
  • Exceptional trip and a very slick operation, unbelievable experience, I’ll be back for more this was the best days fishing I’ve had. Thanks to you all

    • Kirk
