Deep Sea Fishing in Hawaii

Did you know that the waters off of the coast of Hawaii are among the worlds most important? Not only do the waters provide researchers a place to gather valuable information for understanding the Pacific Ocean, they are home to many species of fish that play a vital role to the ecology of the ocean. And part of that ecology is the giant fish that provide food for not only the Hawaiian Islands, but also the entire world!

Deep Sea Fishing in Hawaii is an integral part of the local economy, with a number of locally owned businesses operating out of the harbors on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Big Island. These fishing boats bring in fresh catches to local markets, who then supply the locally sourced fish to local restaurants and grocery stores, and gives locals the chance to enjoy different types of fish.

The same species of fish have been caught in Hawaii for many years, and are some of the most delicious fish you will ever try. Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Swordfish, and Tuna are among the big game fish that make their homes in the warm Hawaiian waters, and locals love to use fresh fish in an assortment of dishes that have become synonymous with Hawaii. Hawaii certainly wouldn’t be the same without Mahi Tacos or Poke, and it is thanks to local fishing boats that we are able to enjoy these amazing dishes.

During a trip to the islands, visitors are able to enjoy a day at sea on local fishing boats, in search of the catch of the day that will help to provide for the islands. Locally owned fishing charters are available on all islands and the chance to reel in a big fish is only a short boat ride away. The Captains know exactly where to go to find the desired catch, and guests on board have the chance to reel in the big one. The Crew is close by to offer advice and a helping hand, and get that big fish on board.

Full-Day and Half-Day Charters are available, heading out to the open ocean where the fish are found. Private Charters ensure that there is nobody else on board, where Semi-Private Charters are a shared boat with fellow fishermen who are also looking to claim the catch of the day.

The rush of even seeing a giant fish is something that shouldn't be missed, and actually catching one of these big game fish is a thrill that makes a deep sea fishing charter the highlight of a trip to Hawaii.
