Meet the Crew

Come and enjoy what the west coast has to offer, from snapper fishing to chasing the elusive marlin.  Whatever your fishing or cruising needs, the crew of Westerberg II is there to ensure you have a memorable and successful experience.

Skipper John and his wife Linda have both grown up in a fishing environment, fishing the west coast and Kaipara Harbour until their move up north to the Hokianga 15 years ago.

They are so passionate about their fishing they decided to go into chartering so others can also enjoy the thrill of the sport. First Mate Neil also brings passion and extensive local experience.

Together the crew make a friendly combination and you’re guaranteed to have a few laughs along the way.

Other options include taking a cruise up the historic Hokianga Harbour or a trip across the bar to view the Hokianga coastline.

Contact us for a customised fishing experience, including  our great Accommodation Package.

We look forward to welcoming your aboard the The Vessel in this beautiful place we call paradise.

Skipper John holds a skipper’s qualification (ILM) and volunteers for the Hokianga coastguard as a Skipper and Safety Officer. Your safety is paramount.
