One of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of coastal Bay of Plenty is to jump on a boat and go fishing.
The Bay of Plenty's region's warm, settled climate makes it the ideal location for fishing year-round. Reef fishing, game fishing and diving are all popular pasttimes here, and a range of day and overnight charter experiences are available.
Around the offshore reefs the catch of the day often includes snapper, kingfish, tarakihi or kahawai, which are all excellent eating fish. Snorkelling for delicacies such as paua, rock lobster, sea urchin and green lipped mussels are also very popular.
