Hauraki Express is a local fishing charter and water taxi company based in the local Kawau Bay area. Being a business owned and operated by the Bourke’s – a family with a huge passion for the sea – it comes as no surprise the team are serious about introducing everyone to the wonders of the Hauraki Gulf!

Hauraki Express specialises in full-day guided fishing trips hunting the dolphin and gannet work-ups and reefs around the Gulf. Their experienced and energetic skippers, George Bourke and Nick Jones, are masters of lure fishing and live-baiting, targeting mainly snapper and kingfish. They have a relaxed attitude but pride themselves on finding big fish daily using techniques that are easy to learn for beginners. All the latest fishing gear is provided, and they have an impressive fleet of fast and modern Extreme boats.These boats comfortably accommodate and fish up to six people per boat, with private toilets and protected cabins.

If you are after a multi-day fishing adventure, they offer all-inclusive, three and five-day trips linking with the lodges at Great Barrier Island. From this beautiful island, superb snapper and kingfish fishing options are available.

But Hauraki Express doesn’t only do fishing adventures, they can also take you and your holiday or work equipment to any island in the Hauraki Gulf on a water taxi. They also offer customised boat trips tailored by you. So why not book a trip and enjoy a day out on the water with the guys!
