What better way to spend the day then flying to the bountiful Coromandel peninsula for a half-day fishing. Departing out of Ardmore, you will have a spectacular view of Auckland city, The Hunua Ranges, The Hauraki Gulf, and its numerous islands. Flying high above the Firth of Thames, with panoramic views of the coromandel peninsula and beyond. Approaching your destination Coromandel Town airfield, you will fly over the stunning islands of the Coromandel Harbor, with crystal clear and blue waters and secluded beaches.

At the Airfield, a taxi will be waiting for you to take you straight to the boat. After a quick seven-minute drive you will arrive at Te Kouma to board one of the vessels from the friendly and experienced team from ‘Mussel Barge Snapper Safaris’. The Skippers, with decades of experience and local knowledge, will take you to the best fishing spots around. Quite often, following the mussel barges. The mussel barges pull up tons of mussels, the activity of which attracts an abundance of hungry snapper, making for some great fishing. After three to four hours of exciting fishing, you’ll head back to the airport with your bounty and top of an epic day with a thirty-minute scenic flight home.

This extraordinary package includes return flights to Coromandel from Ardmore Airport Auckland, four hours of fishing experience with Mussel Barge Snapper Safaris in Coromandel. Everything will be taken care of from return shuttle services at Coromandel Airport to fishing equipment and bait.
