Days Out Fishing Charters BOI NZ

Days Out Fishing Charters offers unique fishing experience in the rich Bay of Islands. These waters are crammed with fish off all shapes and colors, and you will be fishing with the Bay of Islands’ only big Snapper and Kingfish Specialist - Skipper Darren Knapping.

Whether you’re a pro angler or a bit less experienced, Capt. Darren will help you have a time to remember. His trips run year round and often get people the fish of their lifetime. Just have a look at all the fish and smiley people in the photos above - and you’ll understand what Days out is all about.

Skipper Darren is a local fisherman. He grew up fishing around these waters and has a deep understanding of the ocean and the rich life beneath the surface. Having served in the New Zealand Navy for a number of years, and working in commercial Tuna fishing, Darren eventually came to build one of the finest fishing machines in the area.

Days Out is a custom-built Extreme 885 37’ center console. She is powered by twin 200 HP Honda engines. The boat can take up to 7 people and it’s rigged with Garmin navigational electronics, features a private flush toilet, Tuna tubes, a big live well, and ice boxes. She has a cabin, walk around, plenty of room for fishing and enough shade for all people onboard. She is a stable boat fit to weather these waters.

You’ll face numerous fish species in the Bay of Islands. Darren is a specialist when it comes to Yellowtail Kingfish and Snapper. His private and shared trips will see you using a variety of techniques, using Okuma tackle and quality rods and lines. Darren will supply all the gear, tackle, and license. There will be some snacks and drinks on shared trips, whereas lunch can be served for an additional cost if requested beforehand.

Book your spot and come for a great day out on the water! Get your camera and a sunblock, then hop onboard.

Capt. Darren has fished around the world for years before coming back to the Bay of Islands. Growing up around these waters, Darren learned a great deal about the local fisheries in the ocean and the marine life. While serving in the New Zealand Navy for 5 and a half years, Darren traveled the world and then got his captain’s license. He later engaged in commercial Tuna fishing. Eventually, Capt. Darren has come back to his native fisheries and now runs charter fishing trips. He has accommodated many repeat customers. His vessel is one of the finest in the area. Capt. Darren will work to put you on fish and make your trip an enjoyable adventure.
