Aikane Sport Fishing

Experience the thrill and excitement of big game fishing on Oahu with Aikane Sportfishing! There are many places to get a taste of offshore fishing, but few can take your breath away as much as Hawaii.

Captain Sonny Riviera, was raised on the waters he fishes now, so his experience and skills are unsurpassed. He loves spending days with anglers, no matter how skilled they are, teaching them new tricks and helping them go where the fish are.

His faithful companion on every trip is a comfortable 42’ Ocean Sportfisher powered by a pair of Cummings Diesel 315 HP. There’s room on this spacious beauty for up to 6 anglers to freely cast their lines and enjoy the serenity and wild beauty of Oahu nature.

Deep sea fishing is always a special kind of an adventure, whether you’re fighting a massive Blue Marlin, or you’re grappling with Mahi Mahi or Yellowfin Tuna.

Thankfully, you’ve got plenty of trips to choose from, and whether you choose half day one or 10-hour one, you’re in for a true fishing expedition. What’s more, you can choose from trolling and bottom fishing, depending on your preferences and what kind of fish you would like to hook.

One of many things that sets Capt. Sonny and his charter service apart is that they’re the only ones on the Oahu island that allow their customers to keep everything they catch, but not before the crew cleans and fillets it for you.
Your experienced crew is dedicated to making your trip a fun-filled fishing experience you will cherish for a long time. The first mate will be at your service and if you’re happy with his assistance, feel free to tip him, which is highly encouraged.

The boat is fully equipped with top of the line Penn International fishing equipment and state of the art electronics to get you on the fish in no time. You just bring some drinks and food with you to the trip, as well as sunscreen.

Jump aboard Aikane Sport Fishing and let Capt. Sonny take you to an unforgettable angling extravaganza!
