Kaipara Cat Fishing Charters was established in 2010 and is owned and operated by Tony Walles.  We are based in the Kaipara River and are only a 40 minute drive from Auckland CBD.  We pick up from Springs Road in Parakai where parking is available.  Loading at Parakai is much easier and safer than loading at Shelly Beach Wharf.

Our Alloy Catamaran is powered by two 225hp Suzuki outboards and we cruise at 22knots.  It only takes us 25 minutes to get to Shelly Beach Wharf from Springs Rd where we pick you up from. We can get there faster than it takes you to drive.  Being a Catamaran we have a low draft which means we are not tide-dependent, so we can do day charters from 8am to 5pm.

Our ILM licensed Skipper has over 20 years experience on the Kaipara Harbour and has a reputation as being one of the most friendly and helpful skippers on the Harbour.  He will do his utmost to ensure you catch your dream fish and have an enjoyable fishing experience on New Zealand’s largest harbour and the second largest water-way in the Southern Hemisphere.

We are fully surveyed and insured and offer a fast and friendly fishing charter around the Kaipara Harbour where you can catch Kingfish, Snapper, Kahawai, Trevally and Gurnard.
