Please be at Hannafords Wharf on Te Kouma Rd 30 minutes prior to the trip. 
Please be aware that there is very minimal parking at this facility. Car pooling as much as possible is appreciated. The road must be kept clear at all times to allow buses and emergency vehicles access to the wharf and the end of the road. Do not park in areas with no parking signs as the council will ticket you.

Please be aware that these are the times the vessels depart and return, NOT the fishing time. This can depend on how far we need to travel to get to where the fish have been caught previously. It could take 10 mins to get to the closest farms or it may take 50mins or more. Our skippers will try their best to put you on to the fish but we cannot guarantee your catch. If the boat limit has been reached then the vessel will return early.
