Ocean Hunter Wellington

Serving Wellington, the Wairarapa and Kapiti Coast

Back in early 2017, local spearo Hugh and Ocean Hunter founder Mike came up with the idea to open an Ocean Hunter store in Wellington.

Six months later, we opened the doors with the goal to provide Wellington with top quality spearfishing and freediving gear, along with expert advice and service. In 2021, Dan came on board as a co-owner.

We have a passion for helping people on their journey of exploring the underwater world. Come down and see us at Lyall Bay for all your spearfishing and freediving needs!

Meet the team

Hugh founded Ocean Hunter Wellington in 2017. He started spearfishing in 2010, and quickly became addicted exploring the coastline around Wellington and further afield.

He has a passion for chasing cunning species in the pacific islands, as well his Wellington favourite - Blue Warehou, for which he holds the current NZ and World record.

Dan will be a familiar face to many. Having joined us close to day one, he has been an integral part of our team in Wellington.

He loves diving around Wellington's South Coast, and is our handy/technical man. We are stoked Dan came on as a part owner in 2021.

Another familiar face, Josh has been with us for a couple of years. Josh has a passion for spearfishing competitions, competing around the country and overseas.

He has done exceptionally well, notably becoming National Junior champ in 2019, and travelling to Eden, Australia with the NZ team.

Nick is our newest and youngest team member, but he brings with him a wealth of diving experience for someone of such a young age.

Nick and his Dad have spent years exploring the famous South Coast, with Nick becoming quite a 'Cray Whisperer'.

Brocc is the lazy but charismatic one of the shop. Loves to sneak off and sleep under the boss' desk, and also enjoys to keep your better half occupied while we sort you out with your gear.
