Public Trips

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Public Fishing Trips aboard the M.V. Manutere

Whether you’re a single person wanting a day out on the water, a family, or a group, but don't want to hire the boat yourself, jump on board and join others on a public trip.

A day fishing trip aboard the MV Manutere is a fantastic way to spend a day on the water, catch some fish, and experience what the ocean has to offer.

Our most popular trip is a Day trip bottom fishing.

We depart Bridge Marina, (first left heading over the harbor bridge from Tauranga to the Mount) pier D34, at 7am and Salisbury Wharf, Pilot Bay, Mount Maunganui at 7.30am.  We will return you to the Mount at around 4.30pm and Tauranga around 5pm.

We target the popular table species namely Tarakihi, Snapper, John Dory, Trevally and Kahawhai. Gurnard, Pink Mao Mao, Red Snapper, Porae are also regularly caught.

The destination varies depending on which areas are producing the most fish.  The outlying reefs are regular destinations, the Penguins, Astrolabe reef, the Pinnacles and the Okaparus, with the offshore islands of Motiti and Tuhua (Mayor) also being regular fishing areas.

Hapuka fishing for the deep water species is a very interesting form of fishing, with many different species available to be caught. The deep water knolls out of Tauranga have caught some trophy fish over the years, and are continuing to produce these beautiful eating, hard fighting monsters of the deep.

If you are interested in joining a public trip hapuku fishing, send us an email or call and we'll let you know what we have planned.
