About Moeraki Fishing Charters

Moeraki Fishing Charters has been running since 1991 in the small fishing village of Moeraki in North Otago running the MV Kiwa.

Prior to this the 37 foot  “KIWA” was a commercial fishing vessel used for crayfishing.

Kirsten and Callum purchased the business in 2009 and have been successfully running the MV Kiwa as a charter boat since then.

In February 2013 we were pleased with the arrival of the MV Aari to our team. Aari is a larger boat than the Kiwa and we look forward to being able to offer some different fishing trips on this boat. Watch this space for details. The MV Kiwa is still available by arrangement for groups of 8 and details of this can be found in our prices menu.
