The coastline and bays of Waiheke Island are renowned for being fantastic fishing grounds. From a boat, off the rocks or on the beach.
Our fishing professionals are passionate long-time local fishermen who will lead you through an amazing team fishing activity.
There is simply nothing quite like a fish appearing on the end of your hook. And whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced fisho the thrill of the catch and learning something new from these local, highly experienced fishermen is something that your group will cherish for ever.
THE LONG LINE FISHING CHALLENGE:
Each group is given a long line fishing rig, a fishing professional to guide the team, bait and tackle and a position on the beach. Your team must prepare the line, kayak or paddle (on a stand up paddle board) the end of the line off shore and fish! The team with the most keepers at the end of the fishing time wins.
Your fishing professional will help you fillet the fish then hand it over to you to take home if you wish.
Activity includes all your equipment, professional facilitation, support and spot prizes.
While you're waiting for the fish to bite, we'll set up a picnic area for you to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Picking packages can be ordered separately, created by our Let Me Cook chef. Click here for picnic package details.
