2. Fishing in the Bay of Islands
Being a city girl I had never been fishing before until I came to New Zealand. I joined a charter fishing trip in the Bay of Island and caught a New King Fish almost the same size as me. The trips are run by experienced fisherman that teach you everything you need to know to get started. As a one of venture it was thrilling and exciting and I felt like Bear Grylls on an adventure. Even if you don’t fancy fishing this is an aqua haven where you can spot dolphins, whales and many more fishy friends.
