Camelot Sportfishing

74-381 Kealakehe Pkwy
Kailua-Kona HI, United States

Camelot Sportfishing operates out of the famous fishing town of Kona, one of the most renowned sites for big game sportfishing in the world. Marlin, Spearfish, Ono (Wahoo) Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna), and more are waiting in the deep waters just offshore, ready to give anglers the fight of their life.

Captain Robert has been running charters in the area of over 40 years and is widely recognized as one of the most experienced captains in the area. Captain Robert and his son Chris have competed in and won countless tournaments, and the Camelot crew have built a reputation for getting clients hooked on unbelievable catches.

The “Camelot” is a 34’ Bayliner sportfishing boat, which was completely overhauled in 2015 and now comes ready for action, armed with everything you will need for some world-class sportfishing. She also has plenty of luxuries to keep you comfortable in between hook-ups.

The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get you in prime position. She boasts a wide variety of lures and a livewell bursting with bait, as well as custom Tuna tubes to tempt in real big game beasts. Her Penn downriggers and custom outriggers will let you find your target, wherever it is lurking.

Camelot Sportfishing is a family-run, family-friendly business, which welcomes anglers of all ages aboard. Captain Robert and his world-class crew will be happy to teach beginners the tricks and techniques which have made them so successful in the Island’s tournaments. They will also confidently guide the most seasoned anglers to their personal best.

All trips come with tackle, bait, and lures. You do not need a fishing license in Hawaii, so all you have to bring is sunscreen. The crew will even clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, ready to take home and enjoy - you will definitely have worked up an appetite!

I am an Air Force brat and I have lived all over the United States. My Mom had me fishing every river lake and stream as a kid. When I moved to Southern California I jumped on a big game boat and never looked back. I believe that the Lord put me here to do this.

Although we weren’t all successful at catching Blue Marlin, we were all successful in trying and had a fabulous time aboard The Camelot.  Captain Robert and Sawyer went out of their way to ensure a good time was had by all.  They were both very knowledgeable and worked hard to bring the fish aboard and assisted all the fishermen no matter how inexperienced we were. The day was perfect.
Thank you Robert Hudson and Sawyer
