After positively impacting the wellness of many clients, Debbie is passionate about educating and empowering others to experience optimal health, through lifestyle choices.

Cook Your Catch is a fun experience. You get to spend time fishing within the beautiful mercury islands and Debbie will turn your catch into Sashimi and BBQ Whole fish. You can either eat it or take it home.
Mike Hanham – Catch Carters
Mike is a local expert when it comes to fishing and has extensive knowledge of fishing within beautiful Mercury Bay. Whilst its never guaranteed that you will catch fish, Mike is dedicated to ensuring that your experience on his boat (Hootenanny) is fun and memorable.
You don’t have to have fished before, everyone is welcome as Mike will guide you through the day, supporting you, from baiting your rod, untangling your tackle, filleting your fish and bagging it to take home.
Mike emphasizes fishing for sustainability and whilst his goal is that you have an excellent fishing experience, he will place back into the ocean any fish that does not meet his criteria to allow the fish to continue to grow and breed.
