Have you ever dreamed of landing that huge fish on a deep sea fishing adventure? You’ve come to the right place. Hawaii is home to the most amazing marine life that you’ll find anywhere and we can help you catch it! The Island of Oahu offers an outstanding opportunity to catch a big fish. Honolulu offers access to some of the best natural fishing grounds in Hawaii to catch game fish such as Pacific Blue Marlin, Ahi (yellowfin tuna), Mahi mahi (dorado), Ono (wahoo), and Aku (skipjack tuna)

Our captains and crews have years of experience fishing throughout the Hawaiian Islands and worldwide (Australia, Alaska, Midway, Guam, New Zealand, the Bahamas, Florida, Bermuda, and the East and West Coast of the US).

If you would like to have your catch mounted, just inquire with your captain and crew. They will be able to point you in the right direction. Cost of mounting your catch will be dependent upon the weight and size of the catch. If you would like your captain to fillet fish for you, he will. There is no charge for this service. We just ask you not to take more than you can eat. Fish that weigh over 100 pounds will usually be taken to market. Fish weighing under 100 pounds are eligible to be cut, and in some cases you may take up to half of your catch.

Important: Bananas are considered Bad Luck on fishing boats in Hawaii. Please do not bring any bananas on your fishing charter!

We highly recommend that all guests take a motion sickness pill the night before and then again on the morning of the fishing expedition.
