Tradewind Charters invites you on a reef fishing charter in the exotic waters of Honolulu, Hawaii. This charter is perfect for families with children as it encompasses a few hours of different ocean activities. You can fish the reefs, sightsee, and enjoy the exuberant sea life and wildlife, all in the calm waters.

The ideal fishing location above the reefs means you will also be able to see Sea Turtles, Monk Seal, and Eagle Rays on the surface of the smooth waters. The reef is conveniently located just 25 minutes from the harbor departure point. 

The targeted species will primarily be Gray Triggerfish, but you can catch an abundance of small reef species that call these waters home. You will use light spinning tackle to catch and release the fish over coral and lava rock reefs.

You will go out on a beautiful 43-foot Jeanneau sailing yacht, powered by a 75HP Yanmar engine. The boat is equipped with the necessary safety and electronics that will help you locate the best fishing spots. That’s if you need it at all, as you will be moored in 15 - 25 feet of crystal clear water that will allow you to see what lies beneath.

Tradewind Charters offers you a chance to spend a day on the water with your partner, family, or friends, on a very comfortable boat and with a lovely crew. The reef fishing activity is perfect for reunions, pre or post wedding celebrations, team building and corporate meetings where you can compete with the boss.

They can provide you with catering, a bar with refreshments, and a variety of transportation options all upon request to be charged extra.

Capt Paul was SUPER GREAT, so laid back and fun, can’t recommend him enough. We only caught 3 fish, and only one worth keeping, but had so much more fun than we expected. Dolphins visiting the boat made it incredibly memorable. Full day next time. Thanks Capt Paul! :D
