Private Charters

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

Private Charters

This is the trip for you, if you have a group you'd like to get out on the water.

We take bookings for day trips, 24 hour trips and evening trips. A work shout, stag or hens party, social club or fishing club or your family.

The skippered vessel is yours for the trip. We have a barbeque on board, private flush toilet, downstairs area with sleeping accommodation for up to 10. You are welcome to bring your own fishing rods and bait, but if you dont have any with you, you're more than welcome to hire ours.

For day trips we generally depart the bridge marina at 7am and return at 5pm, but if those hours don't suit your group, talk to us about what does, we are happy to work with you. We can also pick up and drop off from Salisbury wharf, Pilot Bay, Mount Maunganui.

The 24 hour trips depart at 6pm and return the following evening. Fish in evening on the way out to Tuhua island, stay on board overnight, Brett provides breakfast onboard and you'll be fishing in no time.

One of the benefits of the 24 hour trip is more fishing time!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
