Waikiki Sportfishing is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Waikiki Sportfishing operates out of Honolulu, on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu, targeting the epic pelagic predators which abound in the deep Pacific waters offshore. Target Marlin, Ono (Wahoo), Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna), and many more awesome deep sea species.

You will be fishing aboard the “Renagade”, a 38’ Hatteras sportfishing boat which was completely overhauled in 2015. The vessel now comes loaded with top-of-the-line equipment to give the best chance in your bluewater battles. She also has plenty of luxuries to make your day even more special.

The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder, to get you on the best fishing spots. Once in place, her outriggers will allow you to target even fast-moving fish like Wahoo and Marlin. Tuna tubes and a fighting chair will let you work your way up the food chain, and hold your own once you reach the top.

The “Renagade” isn’t just some stripped out fishing machine, though. She also has a spacious, air-conditioned interior with a full head and a comfortable saloon for resting in the cool between bites. Up on deck, her large flybridge will let you relax in style as you take in the islands stunning views on your way to and from the fishing grounds.

You will be focusing mainly on trolling when it comes to the big fish offshore, but you can also bottom fish for bait and food fish, and even try spearfishing if you fancy something more active. All trips come with tackle, lures, and licenses, so all you have to do is show up.

The Waikiki Sportfishing crew is one of the best around, and they are waiting to make your fishing dreams come true. So head over to Honolulu, and get ready for a trip you will never forget!

My grandfather and family used to run charter boats when I was growing up. I've always loved the water and fishing. I'm lifestyle rich, as I get to get up and do every day what many people dream of doing once in their lives.
