Great Barrier Island

North Island, New Zealand

Haven't heard much about the Great Barrier Islands off the coast of New Zealand's North Island? Well that is OK, it is our job to find unreal places and make them accessible to you. Great Barrier is home to a set of stunning islands that provide a home for 20+ lb. snapper and the biggest yellowtail we have ever seen (except that the Kiwi's call them yellowtail kingfish).
