Whipsaw Sport Fishing Inc.

Whipsaw Sport Fishing offers exciting adventures out of Honolulu, Hawaii. Those exotic waters offer the best fishing opportunities in the world and the crew is familiar with the hottest spots and the best methods.

Enjoy your trip with Whipsaw Sport Fishing aboard a 35-ft Cabo boat, which comes powered by twin 435 HP Cat 3208 engines. Originally built in 1997, the vessel was upgraded in 2012 and is fully prepared for the current bite. It has a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots and is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, including a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. The boat is wheelchair accessible and fitted with a flybridge to aid your search for the fish, an anchoring system to stay rooted to the fishing grounds, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day, a fighting chair, and a live bait tank. As well as that, the vessel is rigged with outriggers, downriggers, and centerriggers for a professional fishing experience. Inside, the boat is air-conditioned and features a toilet, a shower, a kitchen with a refrigerator, and a bed for you to relax in between the bites. What else is needed?

On your day out, you will be taken fishing nearshore or offshore. You will be butting heads with the big fish, trolling for Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, Wahoo, and Bigeye, Skipjack, and Yellowfin Tuna.

A trip with Whipsaw Sport Fishing comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. If you book a private trip, you will be able to keep 50% of your catch under 100 lbs, and it could be cleaned and filleted for you to take home after the trip and have for dinner later. Or fill the freezer! As well as that, you can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks.

Please note that harbor fee is not included in the trip price and it’s charged extra.
