Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours

Experience Hawaii from a completely new point of view with Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours, operating out of Haleiwa. They use traditional fishing methods and local knowledge to produce the best results possible.

Capt Ryan is a friendly, personable, and an experienced fishing captain who has a reputation for finding and catching fish. Whether you are a hard-core fisherman who wants to chase big game or a family looking for a great experience together, Captain Ryan is your man.

He welcomes you aboard his 26’ Wellcraft center console powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines. The vessel was fully overhauled in 2016 so no need to worry about outdated amenities. Everything on the boat is up to date and top-notch – from marine electronics and safety gear to outriggers, a live bait tank, and an ice-box. The boat is also wheelchair accessible.

Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours offer customizable fishing charters for groups of 1 to 6 people. They keep their prices low so that no matter whether you are two or six people, you get the entire boat for about what you would pay for a shared charter.

You’ll get to reel in prestigious game pelagics such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, Tuna, and much more. Depending on the species you decide to focus on, you’ll get to try your hand in trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping.

You can also combine fishing with some snorkeling and the needed gear will be included in the price, along with all the tackle, live bait, and lures. Fishing licenses and catch cleaning is also courtesy of the charter.

Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours will provide everything you’ll need for an unforgettable day on the water, so book your adventure ASAP.

I’ve been working as a boat captain for the last 10+ years. My favorite thing about fishing, other than landing a dream fish for my clients, is hearing the real singing as a big fish makes its first run after being hooked. I got into fishing because my grandfather was a charter boat captain and I guess it’s just ingrained in my genetics at this point.
