Booking a Half-Day Fishing Charter

A vacation is about doing as much as you can, and fitting as many great activities into a short period as possible. Hawaii features so many great things to do and narrowing down to just a handful might be a bit of a challenge, so clearly, if you can break up your days into multiple activities, you’ll have more time to do great things. Spend the day doing more so you have plenty of memories of Hawaii to look back on.

For those looking for a fun day at sea, a half-day fishing charter is perfect as it allows for time at sea and gives you plenty of time later in the day for more fun. During the early morning hours, you’ll head out to sea, not quite reaching the deepest waters, where an abundance of fish are found, swimming freely in the Pacific Ocean and helping to provide a sustainable food source to the islands. Because a half-day fishing charter lasts between 4-6 hours, the morning hours are spent fishing, returning right around lunchtime and leaving plenty of time for a nap, and an evening activity like an authentic Hawaiian Luau, Sunset Dinner Cruise, or just an evening out on the town.

Even if you aren’t an avid fishermen, you can still enjoy a fishing charter. Just being out on the open ocean is a blast, and when the action starts and a battle for a fish becomes more intense, with everyone on board enjoying the struggle between man and fish. The fish that are found during a half-day fishing charter include Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and other moderate size fish that frequent the channels in between the islands and the semi-deep waters off of the coasts of each island. Though these are not the big game fish that many fishermen are after, they are impressive in their own right, and are some of the most important fish to Hawaiian cuisine.

Doing as much as you can while visiting Hawaii is important for your vacation, and by doing more, you will have a better experience. A half-day at sea on a fishing charter will be a great time for everyone, and you can plan the rest of a single day following your return to the harbor. After catching a fish and having the time of your life out at sea, find an evening activity or a great place to eat to cap of a great day in Hawaii.
