Ruckus Sportfishing And Diving

Ruckus Sportfishing will take you on an adventure of a lifetime! If you’re looking for some of the most memorable fishing trips Honolulu has to offer, look no further than this premier fishing charter of Oahu.

The boat you’ll be fishing on is called “Ruckus,” a beautiful 36’ Topaz Express. This express cruiser is powered by twin 440 HP Yanmar engines, which enables a smooth ride. She has a swim step that can be used as a scuba diving platform. Once you’re done with diving, you can wash off the salt and sand in the boat’s hot water shower. She also features a very spacious back deck and cushioned and covered seating area.

Your adventure starts at the Kewalo Basin Harbor. Just minutes after departure, rods are out and lines are in the water. You can catch some live bait on your way to the big game fish. Get ready for some of the best fishing in Oahu, where you can catch everything from Ono (Wahoo), Blue Marlin, and Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) to Mahi Mahi and much more.

The catch is shared with the crew and they will clean it for you. Snorkeling equipment is always included in the price, just make sure to mention in advance if you would like to go snorkeling, so everything can be prepared on time.

The crew will also provide your fishing equipment, so the only things you need to bring are your snacks and drinks for the day. Please do not bring any glass bottles and absolutely NO BANANAS.

Whether you are on Oahu for vacation or you’re Kama’aina, Ruckus Sportfishing will give you a uniquely Hawaiian experience that you’ll never forget!

Our founder, Ray Collier, started working on family boats in the Gulf of Mexico (Pensacola) at a very young age. He did sportfishing, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, shrimping and various other activities. At age 18, Ray was already a boat owner and operator. It was also at that same age when he decided to join the United States Marine Corps, where he served for 11 faithful years. Ray has spent more than 25 years on boats and has worked in Hawaii for more than 10 years, often with big-name companies in the industry. He became a licensed boat captain in 2008. After spending so many years working for others, Ray decided to start his own small business. Today, Ruckus Sportfishing and Diving continues to thrive. For our company's success, Ray credits the knowledge he gleaned from his years working for others. He continues to stay true to his commitment to providing a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for his guests who wish to learn more about Honolulu boating charters.
