Aloha and welcome! Sea Strike is here to make your next visit to Hawaii even more exciting. Turn your vacation into an adventure and take a trip with an experienced angler. Based in Kailua-Kona, Sea Strike runs their trips year round. They specialize in catching big game fish and adjust their trips to any skill level.

It may sound strange to mention big game offshore trips as family-friendly but this crew makes them like that! Captain Dale Leverone is usually joined by his son on the boat, and together, they make sure you have a successful day on the water, even if you’re a beginner. You only need a bit of enthusiasm and a positive attitude.

You’ll be fishing aboard a spacious 31’ Bertram boat. This fishing machine accommodates up to 6 anglers. She’s fully equipped with navigational electronics, a private bathroom, a fighting chair, trolling gear, and lots of seating and storage space.

Once out offshore, you’ll mostly troll for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Swordfish, and several types of Marlin and Tuna. You can expect lots of hard battles, giant leaps out of the water, and screaming reels!

The crew will cover your fishing equipment, license, bait, and clean your catch if it’s under 25 pounds. You just need to bring some snacks, food, and sun protection.

Let Sea Strike be your ticket for an adventurous and exciting day offshore. Start your trip any time, just choose the date!

    Target Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and different types of Tuna. You'll mainly use trolling. As soon as you see the fish are biting, grab the rod, and hold it tight! You can keep most of the catch and the crew will clean it if it's not too big. Since you'll go after huge fish, it's not practical to pack it for home.

Member since January 2016
Captain Dale has been fishing for all of his life. During his visit to Hawaii, he fell in love with the country and even more in fishing opportunities it offers. This happened 35 years ago and he never stopped fishing ever since. Fishing has always been his favorite thing to do and he even dropped out of college to do it. Besides running trips with clients and teaching them how to fish, he also participates in fishing tournaments. So far, he won HIBT 3 times!
