    positive review  Another fantastic day out on the water with Matt and The Black Pearl. He certainly knows where to find the fish. Would certainly recommend this Charter to anyone. We've had several trips with Matt now and he never disappoints. Bring on the next one!

  • positive review  I got positive results using Adoda love spell in bringing back my husband and make my marriage work again via http://dradodalovetemple.com I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Adoda for the amazing work, It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished.

    Took some mates from overseas on an evening charter. Matt, the skipper, as well as being a great host, sure knows his stomping ground, as we came away with a good haul of snapper, which was what we were after.

    Over the last few years have been out with Matt at least 10 times. Had some incredible days and even the hard days fishing by Matt's standards outshine some of the other charters I've been on.

    Been a couple of times - each time Matt went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. Top notch gear, local knowledge, comfortable boat and gets you onto the fish super quick thanks to twin grunty outboards. Worth every penny.

  • Did an awesome evening run with the boys last night and it was absolutely amazing and beautiful. Best charter any of us had been to in Wellington hands down! No over crowding, perfect size and space for 5 to comfortably fish and not just fishing in one single spot! We all went home with a decent amount of fish, was a good selection of Kahawai, Terakihi, Gurnard and Snapper. (There were a few sharks we had to get off the lines but it was great entertainment!) Matt is awesome and friendly, offered us a cuppa / drinks & snacks which we definitely weren't used to on other charters. We are all still buzzing from the trip and planning more to come. Definitely give Matt a call and plan your next charter with him, great value for money and a bloody good bloke!

    positive review  Great afternoon out on the boat, even though the fish avoided my hook- the others had more luck. Matt was absolutely brilliant with our 7 year old grandson answering his questions with great patience. We will definitely be back. Thank you

    positive review  We had another awesome trip with Matt Dobson, he is friendly and has a very clean and tidy vessel, its a beast of a boat really. The fishing was a day of surprises starting with the weather followed by a mixed bag with Snapper, Gurnard, Trevally, Tarakihi, Kahawai all coming aboard... Cheers Matt boys were stoked....

    positive review  Let the success story of others attract you to your success. I have always had interest in binary trading so I can invest for myself and my family, but I was scared of lost until I got convinced by seeing a lot of people giving testimonies about Mrs Hendrick Jennifer. an expert binary trader. and then I decided to finally give it a trial, so far so good, I have made $15,500 in just a couple of weeks I started trading.
