By making a booking you acknowledge that you have read our terms and conditions and agree with them. Knowing what is expected and abiding by these rules is vital in any fishing trip. Please help us keep you all safe by adhering to these rules and listening to some basic instructions given by the skipper. You must follow the skippers instructions at all times while onboard. Our primary concern is for your safety, and you must comply with any instructions from the skipper immediately and without argument.
Customers are expected to show due care and respect to the facilities and hire equipment. Damage or loss by careless use may be charged to the hirer for replacement cost.
Tauranga Marine Charters and any employee thereof are not responsible for any personal loss or injury incurred by passengers while onboard the vessel.
Fishing productivity will be affected if customers supply sub-standard bait / tackle / rods etc. We are
happy to make recommendations for the above, or we can supply the equipment and
bait. Additional charges apply.

problems and is unable to rebook, the deposit paid is 100% refundable.
