Gannet Island lies twelve miles to
the west of Kawhia Harbour. Most times of the year the
water is crystal clear with water visibilty up to twenty
metres or more. Many divers visit the island in their
hunt for the huge crayfish which live in the holes and
crevices of the vertical north facing wall of the island.
X. O. S . Kingfish abound in the clear waters during
the summer months. " Three 'O' Eight" Fishing
and Crazy Horse are able to take dive parties to the
island or any other parts of the rugged west coast line
for some great diving adventures.
If a person or group wish, Three 'O'
Eight Fishing can arrange other adventures within two
hours of where the company is based.
By arrangement we can hand you over
to two very experienced pig hunting guides. They will
take you on a pig hunting adventure of a lifetime. You
will soon become part of a team that hunt the wild boars
that live in the steep and rugged bush country of the
Kawhia South, Te Anga area.
Other adventures are:
- Goat shooting
- Trout fishing
- Wild turkey shooting
- Deer stalking
