Discover New Zealand's smallest island by cruise with regular stops to explore the native bush and visit historical sites.
Discover your one-of-a-kind fishing experience on the fishing vessel Tequila, while taking in the spectacular surroundings of Foveaux Strait and Stewart Island. We will demonstrate how to prepare, set and retrieve Cod Pots and how to process the catch once landed (i.e. sorting, filleting). Using traditional hand lines, you will be able to catch your own Blue Cod to take home.
We depart Halfmoon Bay in the mornings and afternoons for a 4-hour fishing trip with wet weather gear, gumboots and hand lines provided. There is a great variety of fish, seabirds and other wildlife living in and around the waters of Stewart Island. If you see anything interesting during the trip, please ask to stop and we can have a closer look. We are also available for custom charters, such as hunting, diving or fishing parties, or scenic barbeque cruises.
The wooden F.V. Tequila is 11.38m (37ft) long, built by Miller & Tunnage in Dunedin and launched in 1992. It is surveyed to carry 7 passengers plus 2 crew. Skipper Anthony has extensive local knowledge and over 25 years experience in commercial fishing.
