About Hurupaki Fun Fish & Dive

Fun, Fish & Dive is an annual fishing competition to raise funds & increase wider community engagement in the Hurupaki school.


Fun Fish & Dive will take place at Hurupaki School located at 20 Dip Rd, Kamo, Whangarei 0112


Tickets cost $25 per angler, anglers can fish any area by boat or land-based from 6am Saturday 20th until weigh-in on Monday 22th of October.



As our event grows, we are also aware that we need to keep conservation in mind and respect our ocean. Therefore, this year we will be limiting Adult Angler Tickets to 150 tickets with two fish per category being eligible for weigh in per angler. There will be no limit on Children’s tickets, but they will also only be allowed to submit two fish per sprat or snapper category.


Plenty of spot prizes for lucky anglers so make sure you're in to win!
