Hawaii is one of the best vacation destinations around, for anglers and non-anglers alike! Bring your family along, even if they aren’t fans of reeling in huge Marlin, they’ll have a blast on the sandy beaches and enjoy the gorgeous nature. Captain Duffy of Sea Verse 3 will make sure that everyone has a lot of fun and that trips with him turn into pleasant memories.

Join him on board his 44’ Pacifica. She’s an offshore sport fisherman, originally built in 1974 and restored in 2009 – a testament to her excellent design. Quite spacious thanks to her large deck space, up to 6 anglers can fish from her at the same time in comfort, without knocking over gear or bumping elbows.

Fishing in Hawaii is excellent, in no small part thanks to the fact you can go after big pelagic predators year-round. The top stars of offshore fishing that you’ll go after here are Black, Blue, and Striped Marlin, Spearfish, Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and the colorful Mahi Mahi. Strap in the onboard fighting chair when going after these predators, they’ll give you a proper fight.

Whether a beginner about to reel in his first big catch or a seasoned sea wolf chasing a personal best, Capt. Duffy will assist and instruct you. Customers can keep up to 40 lbs of fish to eat, for the entire group. Fish weighing above 80 lbs won’t be cut up (make sure take a picture with it though!).

If you hook up a trophy fish and would like a memento, you can have a professional fiberglass of it made. Talk to the captain to work out the details.

Book a trip with Capt. Duffy of Sea Verse now and get ready to cast off on an unforgettable fishing adventure in the crystal-clear seas of Hawaii!
