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.

Their captains bring years of fishing experience in local Hawaiian waters as well as mainland and international waters. They love spending the day with anglers, no matter how skilled they are, teaching them new tricks and taking them to where the fish are.

The faithful companion on every trip is a 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 wild beauty of Oahu nature.

Deep sea fishing is always a special kind of 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 no matter which one you choose, you’re in for a true fishing expedition. What’s more, you can choose from trolling and bottom fishing, depending on what kind of fish you would like to hook.

One of many things that sets Aikane Sportfishing apart is that they are the only ones on the Oahu island that allow their guests to keep EVERYTHING they catch, but not before the crew cleans and fillets it for you. The first mate will be at your service and if you’re happy with his assistance, please remember to tip him.

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

Jump aboard Aikane Sport Fishing and let them take you on an unforgettable angling extravaganza!
