Coastal Fishing Tours is touted as one of the top coastal fishing charters companies, best known for their Ranfurly Banks day fishing tour, and is the only company to offer year-round charter tours to this area. Ranfurly Banks is a world-renowned and isolated fishing ground, located a mere one hour from Hicks Bay via charter. It covers roughly 30 miles of various water depths, and is home to various species, such as blue and striped marlin, broadbill, swordfish, bass, giant hapuka, kingfish, tuna, trumpeter, king terakihi, and more. It’s worth noting that some of the largest World Record catches have been fetched from this very spot!

Coastal Fishing Tours embarks locally out of Hicks Bay.
