Do it yourself fishing fun in Doubtless Bay

You can throw a line in the pristine waters of Cable Bay on the beach or on the rocks. Some fishing gear is supplied, as is a dinghy with oars and life jackets for a row out to deeper water - so you can get some exercise and try your luck at the same time.  

Locals come to Cable Bay to free dive for kina, a salty fishy roe - a real  kiwi experience.  

At Coopers Beach and Tokerau, at low tide, tuatuas are dug for in the sand, and cooked up on the BBQ. See us for an excellent fritter recipe.  

Or watch a drone or torpedo released on the beach that winds in with a surprise for all.  For guaranteed fishing catches, you can charter a boat for a full or half day with Doubtless Bay Charters.
