Deep Sea Fishing in Hawaii

The "Aloha State" is famous for its dazzling beauty and angling opportunities. But did you know that deep sea fishing in Hawaii is the ultimate bucket list candidate? Scattered across the Pacific Ocean, this archipelago boasts the most prestigious game fish in the world. To land your giant, pair up with a local. There's no one better than a Hawaii deep sea fishing charter captain to help you seal the deal.

There's no doubt – you'll need a hand to reel in Hawaii’s beasts. Four-digit Marlin and state record Tuna are common offshore residents. Apart from these formidable opponents, deep sea fishing in Hawaii features Wahoo speedsters and Mahi Mahi acrobats, too. As if this isn't impressive enough, the deep blue is home to Sailfish, Swordfish, and other Billfish as well.

You can go after all of Hawaii’s top pelagic predators year-round. To maximize your chances of catching these enviable specimens, align your visit with their peak seasons. Swordfish dominate the first half of the year. Mahi Mahi and Wahoo emerge with spring. However, they're all going strong during summer along with their fellow predators, Yellowfin Tuna and Blue Marlin.

Targeting and battling these majestic creatures is quite an endeavor. So, treat yourself to at least 8 hours out in the open. A full day trip will give you enough time to cover a large area and try different fishing techniques like trolling and bottom fishing.

Casting a line in Hawaii’s offshore waters is easy and you don't even have to buy a fishing license. Finding a perfect fishing spot, on the other hand, is more challenging. Not to worry – Hawaii deep sea fishing charters will come to the rescue. However, you simply can't go wrong if you choose Kailua-Kona, Honolulu, or Lahaina as your starting points.

If the idea is to catch fish, there are definitely fish out there. The family that was out there on Captain Harry's boat before us caught four nice size tunas, we caught one. For us on our trip, the weather was great, the waves were not too high, no one got sea sick, and it was a great way to spend four hours.

Make sure the captain and crew are knowledgeable about what you are catching. There are a lot of endangered species or illegal to catch fish in hawaii so if not could get in some big trouble real fast

Fishing anywhere is unpredictable; fish don’t bite, aren’t there, the weather is crappy, the water is turbulent, etc. The experience is worth it.

Just remember it is fishing. You take a chance on not catching anything. But you get a great time on the water.

This is definitely a first time, small catch, family fun type of outing. Boat was great for a party of 4, unsure how it would be for more people. Please note, taking seasick meds with you is probably a good idea, even if you think you won't need them.
Very good

Go with the attitude of fishing, instead of catching. If you catch something that is a plus.

These waters are not a "first timer" fishing - the waters can be rough. Be ready w/ a scopolamine patch!
