Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Why Great Barrier Island?

The real question is why not? Why not come on an adventure of a lifetime to a magical place surrounded by untouched nature. The Great Barrier Islands are home to the best yellowtail kingfish and trophy snapper fishing in all of New Zealand. Weather permitting anglers will get a chance to fish the famous Mokes for huge yellowtail kingfish and giant snapper amongst some incredibly rugged and beautiful desolate island landscape.

Food & Culture


New Zealand has developed a distinct Pacific Rim cuisine. Expect to indulge in plenty of seafood, award winning cheeses and of course their famous lamb. You should also expect a laidback, friendly atmosphere wherever you eat; Kiwis love to keep things casual.

Excerpt from the New Zealand Tourism Board website.


English is the primary language spoken in New Zealand.


With a patchwork history of Māori, European, Pacific Island and Asian influences, New Zealand’s population of five million people is a melting-pot of cultures. 

Māori culture is an integral part of life in New Zealand, influencing everything from cuisine to customs, and language. Māori are the indigenous people, of New Zealand.
