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.

 GROUP BOOKINGS: A deposit of half the total is required to secure a group booking and must be paid within 2 weeks of booking date.

CASUAL BOOKINGS: Due to the high number of people who book and then fail to turn up or turn up with less than they booked for we now require payment in full when booking is made. This can be done by internet banking, sending a cheque or paying over the phone by visa/mastercard.

Credit card payment available over the phone.

If the trip is cancelled due to weather the deposit will be refunded or transferred to another date. If cancelled by the customer within 3 weeks of the trip then we reserve the right to retain the full amount if unable to fill the booking and if cancelled within 1 week of trip then all monies will NOT be refunded.

There will be no waiting for late passengers after the scheduled departure time on casual trips. A call will be made to attempt to contact passengers just prior to departure, to establish their whereabouts. No refunds will be given for missed charters due to being late. This is why we ask you to be there 30 mins prior to departure.

Alcohol/Drugs- We allow alcohol to be brought on board if it is consumed in a sensible manner. We do not allow illegal drug use onboard. We will not tolerate any abuse of our staff or other customers and will immediately return to the wharf with all monies forfeited if there is unsafe behaviour due to alcohol or illegal drug use. 

What To Bring

Please bring a chilly bin, ice, some food and drinks, warm clothing, and rods and bait, if not ordered prior.
