Welcome to Top Catch Charters Kaikoura where you can expect a great day on the ocean aboard our purpose built 6.2m Osprey Boat, “First Light”. Your fully qualified skipper, Malcolm Halstead, has 35 years’ experience fishing in the waters of the South Island of New Zealand. It is Malcolm’s goal to make sure you have a memorable fishing experience while visiting Kaikoura. We cater for all ages on our trips and take great pride in introducing children and novices to the wonderful sport of fishing. We can also organise longer trips for experienced anglers.

Our trips all leave from the safe port of South Bay Kaikoura. Once on the water it is a short trip to our abundant fishing grounds where you can expect some truly exceptional fishing action.
