Tairua-Pauanui Sports Fishing Club
The Tairua Pauanui Sports Fishing Club is located within the tranquil harbour between the towns of Pauanui & Tairua. Spectacular fishing is at the doorstep with Shoe and Slipper Islands within a couple of short miles of the harbour entrance and provide fun safe fishing year round for both the family and the seasoned serious angler. The Alderman Islands area is within 11 miles of the coast and provides challenging populations of fish species whilst the big game pelagics flow in and around this area from around late December. World class diving is available in countless spots nearby and spearfishing also has a reputable name out of Tairua.
