We are a registered charity and provide our services without charge to our beneficiaries. Although we can’t guarantee you will catch fish every trip, we can promise you a great day out on the water.

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. With winter closing in, we may not be able to offer you a trip until later this year in spring, but if we run anything before then, we’ll be sure to let you know.
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 and Auckland. 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 in the morning trip, around 8.15am to noon, and then in the afternoon from around 1pm to 5pm. This may vary slightly, but 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.
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.
