Fishing and Diving in the Marlborough Sounds

Considering a fishing trip from Havelock with your group? A large variety of fish can be caught using different techniques. We promote and teach Jig and Sports Fishing with advice and help tying of knots and setting up tackle. Some fishing gear can be available. Gary will help with filleting and bagging your catch for you to take home.

Fishing and diving is all year round, with services suited to individual group requirements using sustainable fishing practices.
