Boating and Fishing

Come and throw your line to catch a trout or take a fishing charter to catch a snapper for dinner. Take a boat trip and enjoy some beautiful scenery along Golden Bay's coastline.

General Boating & Fishing

Golden Bay has the best scallop beds in New Zealand & a growing mussel industry. The scallops are fished by towing dredges along the seabed with both recreational & commercial fishers enjoying a bountiful harvest.

The Challenger Scallop Enhancement Company is a privately owned fishing company that gathers scallop spat on artificial collectors (spat are tiny infant shellfish) which are released onto the shellfish beds.
