Consistently performing as the top charter boat from Tauranga


Experience the magic of New Zealand and the spectacular Bay of Plenty with PASADOR SPORTFISHING SAFARIS Specialising in Big Game and light tackle sportfishing.

Pasador operates out of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty and fishes the waters surrounding the internationally acclaimed Mayor Island, White Island and Ranfurly Banks.

Pasador is a modern, purpose built sport fisher and has consistently been the top Tauranga based charter launch.

Tag and Release is the preferred method and the majority of billfish caught are released, however, the choice is yours.

The offshore islands in the Bay are home to Striped, Blue and Black Marlin, Shortbilled Spearfish, Broadbill, Hammerhead, Mako, Tiger, Thresher and Whaler Sharks, Yellowfin, Big Eye, and Blue Fin Tuna, Albacore, Skipjack, Yellowtail Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Kahawai, Trevally, Hapuka, Bass, and Snapper.

Won the Tauranga Gamefishing Club’s coveted trophy for “Top Charter Vessel” over four seasons, including 2006, plus largest Billfish of the season.

Many other credits and awards, too numerous to list but available upon request.

Pasador features a large cockpit, fully equipped galley, spacious saloon and comfortable sleeping accommodation.
