Seafood is a mainstay of the traditional Maori diet, and it is common to see families at the beach with a line in the water waiting for dinner to bite. At the weekend many Gisborne residents also head out to sea to fish or dive on the various reefs off the coast, which are also abundant in rock lobster. If you fancy a spot of sea fishing there is normally someone who has room for another passenger on their boat.

If you fancy a spot of fly-fishing, you will find some of the best trout rivers in the world less than an hour’s drive from town.
