Have a Go at Trout Fishing in New Zealand - Upper Waiau River, Te Anau Combine fishing and jet boating in the Fiordland wilderness for the ultimate kiwi adventure. Incredible fun for friends, couples and families, no fishing experience required. This isn’t just about the trout fishing; we have scenery on offer that will make your jaw drop, knowledgeable local guides and of course jet boating! Relax as you drift down the mighty Waiau River, fishing for the high numbers of rainbow and brown trout that Fiordland is famous for. Enjoy the thrill of speeding back up the river in our purpose-built jet boat, alongside the stunning Fiordland National Park. Experiences include either morning or afternoon tea with home baking or a delicious BBQ lunch on the riverside with locally-sourced produce. Lots of fun to do with a group of friends or family of up to 6 or as a couple. Pre-booking is recommended Dec – Feb as availability is limited.
