This is the perfect day out for groups including corporate events, team building, Christmas functions or just a group of friends wanting to have a blast!
MV Apollo is a 13m monohull surveyed under MNZ regulations. She is powered by 2 x Suzuki 300 hp outboards and cruises comfortably at 22 knots which means less time travelling, and more time fishing. Apollo has an open wet deck with side clears that can be rolled up so fishing can be on the sides or from the beam. There is also an open galley and private toilet on board.
An Exceptional Fishing Experience
Your day will include the expert services of skipper Brian and local fishing guru and deck-hand Grant.
We cater for groups of up to 15 passengers, with a maximum of 10 anglers at one time for ultimate fishing comfort.
We leave from Leigh wharf - perfectly situated close to all the best Hauraki Gulf fishing spots. We reach Great Barrier and the Mokohinau Islands in just over an hour and Little Barrier in just over half an hour.
We aim to be back at Leigh wharf by 5pm, however, if the fish are starting to come on the bite towards the end of the day we can make the call whether to extend the time.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ...
"We would highly recommend Outer Gulf Charters as a charter, their knowledge of the area was superb and the options we were given was amazing, it was like Brian new every inch of the gulf and their islands.
There was no hesitation in going as far as the Mok’s if the weather permitted, or some favourite spots around Great Barrier and Little Barrier. The diving was spectacular and even thou we had various levels of experience in the group the dive masters catered for all and safety was first and foremost. The fishing was incredible and it seemed everywhere we went we were always hooking up, the service was friendly and engaging and the hospitality was far beyond expectation, I think it is obvious they love what they do their passion and enthusiasm flows through to the charter experience.
We have chartered APOLLO 3-4 times now and will continue to charter them as we always have a great time and come home with fish and/or cray’s and/or scallops "
