Be Prepared for Your Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing Adventure

As with anything, a day at sea is all about preparation and making sure you have everything that you will need for an extended period away from the everyday amenities that we are so used to. When you’re out at sea on a Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing Adventure, it’s probably even more important to be prepared, simply because you will be out in the middle of the ocean for hours, so if you need something like a drink of water, you better be sure that you have it with you. Take this advice and get ready for a fun day at sea.

What to Bring
Really, anything that might need will fall into this category, and there really isn’t a limit to what you should bring. The most useful items that you will need are:

  • Sunblock (with a high SPF)
  • Long sleeved shirt
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Towel
  • Phone charger (or external charger)
  • Food and snacks
  • Water

Probably the best piece of advice we can, especially to those who suffer from motion sickness, is to take sea sickness or motion sickness medicine. There is nothing worse than being sick all day at sea, so take the appropriate precautions leading up to your adventure. Consult your doctor prior to leaving for your trip and begin taking your medicine as suggested.

Planning Your Day
A day at sea is quite long, so if you are more intent on having a little fun and not so worried about catching the biggest fish, consider a Half-Day Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing Adventure. This option is much shorter than a full day at sea and still gives you a great chance at catching a fish. You’ll stick to shallower waters that are closer to shore, and return to the harbor in time to enjoy the late afternoon and nighttime.

Your Catch
If you are able to hook a fish and bring it on board, you are going to be thrilled and will have enjoyed a tough battle to get the fish on board. You should know ahead of time that you will not be keeping your entire catch. You’ll be given a share and the remainder of the fish will stay with the boat before heading to the fish market for auction. Some are surprised to find this out, but what would you do with an entire fish in a hotel?!?
