Our Charters

The RodFather crew has been running fishing and diving charters out of Kaikoura for over 12 years.

The Kaikoura coastline, situated on the east coast of the upper South Island of New Zealand, offers an incredible fishing and diving opportunity.

Kaikoura is renowned for its deepwater fishery where you can catch Groper, Bluenose, Ling, Kingfish, Hoki, Alfonsino and Ribaldo in abundance. Closer to shore the shallow waters offer Blue Cod, Gurnard, Tarakihi, Moki and Butterfish.

Or if you are looking for a diving trip targeting the renowned Kaikoura crayfish we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Join Steve on board his 850 Osprey hardtop charter fishing and diving boat for a charter trip of a lifetime.
