Meet our skipper, Dingy – Franz Josef Tours

Meet our skipper, Dingy – Franz Josef Tours

by | Feb 14, 2020

Dingy (Jake) has come down to join the team all the way from Hamilton in the North Island. (Although we try not to hold that against him!)

Dingy is a keen fisherman with extensive experience deep sea fishing in the far north. He holds the NZ record for catching a wooping 64kg Blue Shark on just a 4 kg line!

Dingy has been gaining experience on gaint cargo ships, but is taking a break from the open ocean to enjoy the calmer waters of Lake Mapourika.

You might run into Dingy on any of the tours that we offer including Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Although he seems a little confused at times as to which way up he should be on the SUP.

Dingy is full of great fishing tales as is any good fisherman. He has also gained an extensive knowledge of the local area and New Zealands unique flora and fauna.

For your chance to book a tour with Dingy today book online or give us a call on 0800 423 262.

We look forward to seeing you on the water!
