Spearfishing in Hawaii

Spearfishing is one of the most exciting things you can do in a place already famous for heart-thumping angling action. Nothing beats the thrill of getting up close with your target fish. Be it a reef or bluewater expedition, the Hawaiian archipelago has a hotspot for every spearo. And if you aren't sure where to begin, you can always team up with Hawaii's spearfishing charters for the local tips and tricks.

From colorful reef residents to deep sea royals, spearfishing in Hawaii won't disappoint. Moving gradually from the shore towards the open ocean, you can cross paths with Goatfish, Triggerfish, Snappers, Groupers, Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and many more. If you want to have fun and help the Hawaiian ecosystem at the same time, go for invasive species like Roi and Toau.

Thanks to the warm temperatures, you won't need a thick wetsuit. Apart from the outfit, you'll want to gear up with a mask, snorkel, fins, speargun, knife, and dive flag. The last item on the list is a must. A dive flag indicates your whereabouts and ensures safe diving or swimming conditions for everyone in your proximity. If you're spearfishing with a certified guide, they'll have you covered with the equipment and safety measures.

Out of all Hawaii’s islands, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island are the most popular spearfishing destinations. You can either explore the deep blue opportunities by boat or enjoy your spearfishing journey closer to the shore. A full day trip is ideal if you're heading offshore, whereas 6-hour trips are perfect for reef hunting.

You don't need to purchase a special permit to spearfish in Hawaii. There are, however, quite specific regulations regarding the areas where you can fish and the species you're allowed to target. While most species are up for grabs, pay attention to their bag and size restrictions, too. Make sure you're familiar with the latest laws before going out.

Fishing in Kona is not always catching fish, sometimes it is just a long boat ride. The weather is usually great though.

A little chop on the water but the whales in season off the coast more than make up for that.

Don’t underestimate the waves. Take Dramamine or whatever else before getting on the boat. My wife and I didn’t get sick but definitely felt queasy for a few mins. Ran into some bigger waves and super cloudy day so we couldn’t see land at times

If you're looking to land a trophy, Kailua-Kona is the place. But if you're a large group, looking catch a lot of fish this probably not the location.

Expect a great fishing experience. Depending on the time of year the catching can be so so. That said, in 5 trips out of Haleiwa I have never been skunked.

Of course when windy it can be rough. No guarantees to catch fish so you just have to get out there and put in your time and it will pay off.

Beautiful, warm days on the water! Fishing was slower than other months but you’re still chasing fish and enjoying beautiful views. Pick the right crew and any day is memorable.

This was our first time fishing in Hawaii, so not sure seasonally how fishing changes. Our trip started out pretty slow but glad we booked the full day. All our fish came in the afternoon. Caught multiple Mahi-mahi.

Patience. You will spend a lot of time trolling around, but when you do hook up, it is pure excitement.

Just catch small ones for kids at least. If you got big ones, you’re lucky.
