Kailua-Kona, Hawaii is know worldwide for its calm waters, famous flats, and big game fishing. There really is no better way to experience this bountiful fishery — as well as jaw-dropping scenery — than with High Noon Sport Fishing charters!

Captains Dee Bradford is at the helm, and he’s being fishing the Kona waters for over 20 years professionally — he knows them like the back of his hand! He loves nothing more than getting to know his clients so that he can provide them with a one-off, completely customized experience. Whether you want to battle with Blue Marlin or target something tastier like Wahoo or Mahi Mahi in the tranquil flats, your captain is here to provide you with a totally unique adventure.

You’ll be spending your time on a 34’ Blackfin cruiser, often considered to be one of the finest sport fishing boats ever designed. Think that’s impressive? Not only can she comfortably accommodate 6 anglers, but she’s also decked out with a large flybridge that provides elevated and cushioned seating for all guests. It’s the perfect spot to view the stunning Kona Coast scenery while trolling for gigantic Blue Marlin!

She’s also fully fitted with all the latest navigational and safety equipment, including autopilot, GPS, and Fishfinder. You’ll be arriving wherever the fish are biting in comfort, safety, and style. She also comes equipped with a fully enclosed head, so expect a toilet, mirror, sink and faucet, and fresh water.

Both new and experienced anglers alike are welcome aboard High Noon Sport Fishing charters — whether you’re a seasoned fisherman or are just discovering your sea legs, there’s something for everyone! Capt. Dee is happy to accommodate children of all ages, making his charter perfect for your next big family holiday.

Your trip includes the finest rods and reels, as well as lures and live bait. Your fishing license will also be provided, so all that’s left is for you to book an adventure with High Noon Sport Fishing Charters and set sail!

Response time 3 hours
Member since October 2014
Captain Dee Bradford started fishing in Kona in the early 80s, and hasn't stopped since! He's owned and operated High Noon Sport Fishing charters for the past 25 years. Capt. Dee, who has been profiled in media such as Marlin Magazine and Deep Sea Fishing Network, loves nothing more than showing his anglers the nuances of Kona fishing. Describing the underwater terrain, discovering ledges and bouys where smaller fish congregate, demonstrating the fish finders and chart plotters which help immensely in finding fish...you name it, and he'll fill you in on all the 'need to know' information! When it comes to fishing, Capt. Dee loves trialing new techniques and sharing tricks and tips with fellow anglers. How about his favourite catches? Well, he has three 900 lb plus Blue Marlin under his belt, to name a few. On High Noon, you are not just a spectator but an integral part of the fishing experience, so come aboard and get ready to reel 'em in!
