My name is Wayne Banks

I operate Neptune fishing charters from Half Moon Bay Marina.Auckland, New Zealand and have been doing so for 18 years. I offer Day trips Evening trips and extended Stay away charters. I cater to both individual and group bookings.

M.V Chantelle was launched in 1977 when she began her life "crayfishing" from Napier in the waters around the rugged East Cape of New Zealand.  She then ventured north to Auckland, with a new owner, where she found herself busy as a 'Coast Guard duty cutter' and as a 'dive charter vessel' for the next 12 years. Then I stepped aboard first as a "contract skipper", with fishing charters the main focus.  Four years later, I became the third owner of the 'good ship'- "Chantelle".

Chantelle is a very sturdy '12 meter (40ft) Lidgaurd Endeavour designed,fiberglass construction, heavy displacement commercial launch' and is perfect for charter fishing.  On day or evening charters Chantelle is licenced for up to 28 passengers plus crew however for your comfort i recommend a maximum of 16 people for fishing.On live aboard trips she sleeps 5 passengers plus myself in comfort.
