What you'll do

Enjoy the fun of catching your own fish the easy way! Go fishing without getting on a boat, getting wet or clambering over rocks! Kontiki (Torpedo) fishing off the beautiful Opito Bay is a real treat and so simple anyone can enjoy it.

I have over 20 years of experience fishing Opito Bay.

Meet me at my Kiwi bach, firstly we'll discuss safety and where we'll be fishing. Then I'll load up my trusty tractor and we'll pop down to the beach 200m away. After laying out and checking the gear we'll set the "torpedo" off to go fishing.

Now's the time to sit back and relax. Bring along a cuppa or a beer. Maybe some nibbles and have a picnic. While the torpedo is doing its magic, we'll talk about the types of fish we might catch, their habitats, the best way to cook your fish and other things to see and do on the beach that only locals know about.

After about 45 minutes it will be time to reel in the fish and get your cameras ready! This is so much fun for anybody 9 years old to 90!

All the legal sized fish we catch are yours to take home.

I’ve been fishing Opito Bay for 20 years - since the first day I visited. Fishing is what I love to do and in large part, why we live here. I’ve been fishing since I was 10 years old - 45 years now and still get a thrill catching fish - whether it be big game, snapper or kahawai off the beach. I've fished many places in NZ and the world but would have to say Opito Bay is unique. I love helping other people enjoy fishing; its just as much of a thrill seeing their reaction and enthusiasm in catching fish that they can eat.

Where you'll be

You won’t need to travel far, the beach is only 200m away. We’ll be fishing on the glorious Opito Bay in Coromandel NZ. With 7km of sand, fringed by rock pools, you'll be looking out to the many islands that make up the Mercury Island Group. I'll choose the best spot on the beach based on where the fish are, tides and weather conditions. Plus the type of fish we are targeting. You might even hitch a ride on my tractor. Closest town is Whitianga

An excellent day on the beach fishing with Perry and Erin - Opito Bay is beautiful and we caught a few fish for me to take away too. Was made to feel really welcome, and it's a great way to take in the view and catch some fish. Absolutely recommend trying this experience out!
