A qualified up-to-date skipper is required to be present on a 7 - 10 day (negotiable) fishing trip departing from Tauranga over the summer period. Ideally, the keen fishermen would like the trip to occur from around 29th December - 7th January, but that's negotiable. The skipper won't have to do too much, it's really about having a certificate on board. There's a chef on board, you're welcome to fish too. The pay is typically $300 per day, but rates may be negotiated for the right person. The owner of the 65FT may offer a lot more work for the right skipper.
