About Us

Fishing in the Marlborough Sounds

We are a young at heart, middle-aged couple, who have 35 years experience of boating and fishing in the Marlborough Sounds. We are passionate about this area and love nothing more than to share our enthusiasm and little slice of paradise with our guests.

Alan is a qualified LLO (Local Launch Operator). He has vast knowledge of fishing techniques, best Marlborough Sounds fishing spots, and local weather and sea conditions. He can also cook up a mean fish bite for lunch.

Our boat, Alibi, is a 9.5m Planing Launch and is berthed in the Havelock Marina. It was built in Havelock for Marlborough Sounds sea conditions and comfortably seats six adults inside and two outside, although for comfortable and tangle-free fishing, six is the ideal number. A toilet and wash basin are available on board with plenty of storage for fishing gear up front. For refreshments, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities are also on board.
