Pacific Sportfishing LLC

1125 Ala Moana Boulevard
Honolulu HI, United States

Pacific Sportfishing LLC looks forward to taking you on a Hawaiian Deep Sea Fishing Adventure. The charter is operated by Captain Joe O’Neill who’s been fishing the waters of Hawaii since the early 1970’s and has competed in many tournaments placing high. He is a kind and patient man, and an excellent captain who makes it his number one priority that you have fun!

You will fish aboard his 41-foot Hatteras named Play n Hooky that is powered by two 220 HP Detroit engines. The boat is safe and powerful on the water and contains all the electronics needed for a successful trip. There is a very comfortable salon area for when you tire of fighting big game fish, a kitchen, and a toilet.

Pacific Sportfishing LLC will provide all the fishing gear, taking care the rod suits you or your child, and providing as much advice and assistance as you may need. You will also have reels, tackle, lures, and outriggers available to maximize your chances of a productive trip.

Fishing will take place in the offshore waters off of Oahu Island where you can catch Mahi Mahi, Marlin - Black, Blue, and Striped, Spearfish, Rainbow Runner, Wahoo, and Tunas - Skipjack, Bigeye, and Yellowfin.

You will be able to use a fighting chair when tackling the fish, and the first mate will also help with reeling it in. Once the trip is over, the crew can share the catch if it weights up to 40lbs.

Bring your snacks, drinks, step aboard, sit back, and relax while the captain and crew work to make your sportfishing dream a reality.

Upon arriving at the marina we were welcomed by the captain, his wife and first mate.  They were very friendly.  As soon as we left the harbour the first mate had the lines in the water and then proceeded to show us how to sit in the chair and the correct way to reel in the fish.  Even though there was only one fish caught today it was not the crew’s fault.  The fish were not biting.  Our boat was the only one that had caught a fish by noon.
I got sick in spite of the motion sickness pills, sea bands and prescription patches and there were 6 in our party. 
It was still a beautiful day and when we arrived back the captain took pictures with us and made sure that we had enjoyed ourselves!

Got on the boat. Caught fish. Came back to the dock. It was that simple. I’d do it again. They were awesome people to fish with.
