Hokitika fly fishing guide Hokitika West Coast New Zealand

Shantytown, only 25 miles away!


A major port of entry during the gold rushes of the 1860's and 1870's, the dreaded bar at the mouth of the Hokitika_River claimed many ships, and many lives. At its peak, the port was exceptionally busy. One famous photograph of those times shows some 40 sailing ships berthed at the wharf!  Nowadays, its a busy little town, bustling with tourists. There are some excellent craft stores, glass-blowing displays and shops, jade carving studios, and a shop specialising in jewelry fashioned from genuine gold nuggets!  A number of hotels and motels provide a range of accommodation. 

A multitude of lakes and rivers provide water sports aplenty. The main highway south to the Haast Pass is studded with beautiful, unspoiled lakes, surrounded in prehistoric forests, untouched since the dawn of time. The fishing and hunting are good, with access to the Southern Alps at the back door of the town. Some 2.5 hours to the south are the renowned Fox & Franz Joseph glaciers, major tourist drawcards! Scenic helicopter or aircraft flights around, and onto the glaciers are popular pastimes. Guided walks right up the glaciers are provided by specialist guide companies. Wildlife abounds in the region to the south, including seal colonies, the white heron sanctuary, and the rainforests are a delight to behold and enjoy. Our personalised tour services can be utilised to take you to any or all of the local points of interest. Merely outline the amount of time you'd like to spend here, what you like to see, and let us take care of the arrangements n your behalf. If you enjoy good service, and dislike arranging the vacation logistics, call us for an obligation-free quote!
