A Day at Sea on a Hawaii Fishing Charter

Adventures and new things are always fun, and finding the best things to do makes your vacation that much better. There is nothing quite like creating a new experience with an activity that you have never done to give you lasting memories of a dream vacation. While you’re visiting Hawaii, you can head out to sea on a deep sea fishing charter, an adventure that will have you casting a line for big game fish and some of the most sought after catches for local fishing boats.

Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or a beginner, there is room for you on the boat. Even if you have no intention of actually fishing, you can still join and head out to sea for fun and adventure. When you are out at sea, there is a just a different feeling and you feel instantly connected to the Hawaiian Islands, taking part in an activity that has been a vital part of living in Hawaii since the first ocean voyagers arrived.

You might be wondering what to expect while out at sea, and we can help you gain an idea of what your fishing charter will include. The most important thing that you can do is be prepared for a day away from the typical amenities that we are so accustomed to. The most important thing that anyone heading out to sea can do is preparing his or her bodies by taking motion sickness medicine. Begin taking at least 24 hours prior, even if you are not prone to motion sickness, and follow the instructions provided with the medicine. The ocean is a different than being on land, or traveling in a car, and anyone can fall victim to the motion of the ocean.

Next, and one of the most important aspects, is to bring the appropriate food and drinks. Each boat is a bit different, but they will encourage you to bring food, snacks and plenty of water. These items will be necessary while you are out at sea, and you will want to stay hydrated and have plenty of food on hand. If you have questions about specific things to bring, you will be able to ask your Captain prior to going out. You will also want to bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a light long sleeved shirt or jacket, to protect you from the sun.

We don’t want to spoil the actual activity, as this is the fun part and you will want to enjoy the experience. If you are lucky enough to hook a fish, you will be the one that does all the work to reel it in, though the crew will be close by to offer support and guidance, lending a helping hand if needed. Once you have the catch on board, it will be time to celebrate!
