Deep Sea Fishing Oahu

As the most visited of the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu seems to just have more to do and more adventure to find. Home to popular sites like Pearl Harbor, famous areas like Waikiki Beach or the North Shore, and some of the best sites in Hawaii like Diamond Head, Oahu has it all. It even has some of the best fishing in Hawaii, heading out to deep waters to well-known hot spots where fish of all shapes and sizes are found. Deep sea fishing on Oahu is a fun adventure at sea, and presents one of the few opportunities you may ever have to reel in one of the giant fish that make their homes in the waters off the island’s coast.

The best part of deep sea fishing on Oahu? Your captain and crew are experts in these waters, knowing exactly where to go to find the catch of the day and where the fish are biting. You’re able to sit back and enjoy the ride out before casting your line and waiting for that first nibble. You’ll watch the island shrink in the distance, and soon your surroundings will be only the Pacific Ocean.

With its location in the middle of the ocean, near the equator, Hawaiian waters are naturally warmer and are the perfect place for fish to grow to their potential. With plentiful food sources and plenty of room to swim, big game fish thrive here. Species that you might encounter during your deep sea fishing on Oahu include:

  • Skip Jack and Yellow Fin Tuna
  • Mahimahi
  • Ono (Wahoo)
  • Trevally
  • Pacific Blue Marlin
  • Striped and Short Billed Marlin

With departure points not far from Waikiki or Ko’olina, deep sea fishing on Oahu is actually quite convenient, especially considering that in many cases, you’ll be picked up and dropped off at your hotel. The hardest part of this entire day is going to be reeling in the catch that you’ve landed, a sense of accomplishment that will be the envy of everyone you know. Head out from the harbor on either a half-day adventure or a full-day of deeps sea fishing on Oahu, and get ready for a boat load of fun!
