Maui Deep Sea Fishing

It always seems like Maui is the place to be when you’re in Hawaii. The island is so beautiful and so much fun, and it always seems like there is something really fun to do. There are so many great activities to fill up a vacation, including a day out at sea on a Maui deep sea fishing adventure, taking you to the best fishing spots on the island and giving you the chance to reel in the day’s catch.

Maui deep sea fishing charters depart daily from either Lahaina Harbor or Ma’alea Harbor, neither very far drive form the nearby resorts. Due to the need to get out to the hottest fishing spots, charters depart in the early morning hours to meet the fish when they’re biting. Depending on the duration of your adventure, you’ll have a cruise time of anywhere from 20-45 minutes, and then the fun really starts.

With the location of the harbors being on the Leeward Side of the island, most sport fishing takes place along the western and southern parts of the island, with different locations serving up different fish. The south shore of Maui is great for Marlin and the channel in between Maui and Molokai is fantastic for Mahi Mahi, plus there are spots that only the captain and crew know, and as experts of these waters, know just where to go and how to read the currents.

As with neighbor islands Oahu, Kauai, and BigIsland, Maui is renowned for its deep sea fishing. Like the KonaCoast, these waters are ripe with big game fish, and fishing here is always in season. Depending on your selected charter and the location you are fishing, you’ll be in search of:

  • Pacific Blue
  • Striped and Short Billed Marlin
  • Skipjack Tuna
  • Yellow Fin Tuna
  • Mahi-mahi
  • Wahoo (Ono)
  • Hawaiian Salmon

Fishing is vital to Hawaii, and has been since the earliest arrivals of settlers. Maui deep sea fishing is comparable with some of the best places in the world, and you’ll love participating in this national pastime. Local fishing charters help to feed the islands, selling their catch to local markets and restaurants, and providing sustainable food to residents of Hawaii.
