Make your Hawaii adventure complete and go fishing with To The Max Charters on the Beautiful North Shore. Team up with Captain Kevin Chadick and/or Captain Adam Lynam who have spent the last 2 decades exploring the local waters and know where to go to put you on the fish any time of year.

One of the advantages to fishing in Hawaii is that you can find trophy game fish just a few miles from land, which means you don’t have to travel long to catch something brag-worthy. To the max offers half day and full day trips that will get you to the most productive fishing grounds in the area.

On half day excursions, you’ll stay close to shore and fish in the 3-mile radius, targeting Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna. If you’d like to spend a whole day on the water, then full day expeditions are the best choice. You’ll get 8- 9 hours on a reliable boat with a skilled captain and have plenty of chances to hook a massive Blue Marlin, migrational Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and wahoo(ono).

Your fishing platform and ride for the day is a 30’ Bertram sport fisher with twin 200 HP Volvo Diesel engines, freshly restored in 2019. There’s room on board for up to 6 people and they can fish at the same time. The boat sports a flybridge, a live bait well, and navigational electronics to take you to where the fish hide.

With a private toilet and plenty of seating room, the vessel is comfortable and stable on the waves. You’ll be using quality fishing tackle, and if you’d like to cool off and jump in the water, that can be arranged. If you need any assistance, the first mate will do his best to help you out.

Bear in mind that when it comes to splitting the catch, you can keep up to 25 pounds on half day trips, and up to 50 pounds on full day ones, the rest will go to the crew. You should come aboard with your favorite drinks, snacks, and lunch. Kids of all ages are welcome to join the fishing fun.
