    About the Three Kings Islands:

    This is a trip of a life-time. Trip dates have been scheduled for the first trips of the 2018/2019 Three Kings Season on Enchanter. By November, no fishing has taken place at the Three Kings Islands or surrounds for 6 months ensuring that the fish have not seen a jig or lure for over half a year. This also coincides with pre-spawn, heightened and aggressive feeding behaviour from trophy fish prior to the spawning season. 

    The opportunity to box with 30+kg Yellowtail Kingfish on Enchanter, a magnificent 53ft boat with 8 berths. The Three Kings Islands are located in the Tasman Sea, 60 nautical miles to the NW of North Island, New Zealand and comprise many miles of islands, seamounts and ranges with rugged rocky seabeds and drop offs. Rising from 2000 metres to 40 metres. The islands consisting of the Three Kings Islands, and the Princes Group also provide great opportunities to target BIG Yellowtail Kingies on surface lures such as Stickbaits, Poppers and Plugs

    The strong currents excite the likes of Yellowtail Kingfish and provide an abundance of food for Hapuka, Bass, Bluenose and Trumpeter. There is also the chance of Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin, as well as the mighty Gladiator of the Sea - The Broadbill Swordfish!

    Why so good?. The Three Kings are isolated and remote and not accessible to the daiily recreational angler. It is a firm favorite with the world’s jigging specialists. We have organised two back-to-back trips in February 2018. Each trip offers 5 fully catered nights on board Enchanter, with the most amazing Jigging you will ever have experienced. Representatives of Jigstar Africa will accompany guests on both trips.

    We have Jigged and Popped the "Three Kings" with Lance Goodhew on Enchanter every year since 2010, and every trip has provided some of the best fishing of our lives! To see pictures from our previous trips to the Three Kings Islands please visit our Galleries at
