Offshore Adventures with Tony Orton

Offshore Adventures is one New Zealand’s premier fishing charter companies and is based in the stunning seaside village of Mangawhai Heads which is only a 1.5hr drive north of Auckland.

We offer a diverse fishery and within minutes of leaving the harbour you can be fishing for snapper and the famous yellowtail kingfish.

Further offshore to the Mokohinau Islands on the outer edge of the Hauraki Gulf you will be fishing reefs and structure that hold some of New Zealand’s trophy snapper and the mighty kingfish.

In the warmer months offshore of the Mokohinau Islands striped marlin can be caught when the warm currents push in.

Specialty: Lure fishing and live baiting for yellowtail kingfish and snapper. Our well equipped Extreme boat 8.5m (28ft) custom built (centre cab vessel) has been specifically designed and built for lure fishing in mind, top of the line Shimano tackle, Garmin electronics and an internationally experienced captain/guide will ensure you have an amazing sport fishing experience.

We also offer a number of incredible overseas fishing experiences to places like Mexico (marlin, yellowfin tuna & mahimahi), Oman (giant trevally, yellowfin tuna, sailfish) and more. Check them our overseas guided fishing trips out here.
