We are a registered charity and provide our services without charge to participants. Although we can’t guarantee you will catch fish every trip, we can promise you a great day out on the water.
We are now taking registrations for Spring and Summer later this year.

What to expect
Once you submit the application form we’ll be in touch to understand your needs and to set things in motion for your trip.
We have been extremely busy with applications so please be patient, we will do our best to get to you as soon as we can 🙂
The service is free, we do not charge for the service. If you wish to make a donation that is appreciated but entirely up to you, there is no obligation at all.
We are based in Tauranga but also provide trips from Thames Coromandel, Auckland and Whangarei. We plan to provide trips further afield including the South Island so if this is of interest please keep in touch for updates or drop us an email and we’ll be in touch.
No, we are happy to provide all the fishing equipment and bait for the day. We’ll have the gear for the fish we are targeting, all you need to do is turn up for the day and have fun.
Our trips are usually around 4 hours. We often run trips from 10am to 2pm but weekend trips may be slightly longer. Once your trip is confirmed we’ll send all the details well in advance of your trip.
If the weather conditions are not appropriate for your trip we will postpone it to another day. We’ll try to give you notice if the weather forecast isn’t good, but ultimately the skipper reserves the right to postpone a trip because safety is our highest priority.
Wish for Fish practices an extremely high level of safety and has strict policies in place, complying with all Maritime New Zealand safety standards including experienced, qualified skippers and crew completing their obligations on surveyed, chartered vessels.
