Getting Ready for Your Hawaii Fishing Adventure

We all know that preparation is key and preparing for a day at sea takes planning and readiness, all so your day is great from beginning to end. The ocean and the elements can be unforgiving, and trust us, you don’t want to end up having your day ruined by something that you could have been ready for.  

One of the most important things to remember is that you are going to need sunblock and to remember to apply it generously. There is usually an indoor area on the boats, but when you’re battling the fish, you will be out in the beating sun. You can also bring a long sleeve shirt or light sweatshirt. Either way, be sure to bring protection from the sun, which can also include a hat that covers your head and neck, and sunglasses. All are critical to keeping you protected from the sun.

Heading out to sea for a day is a great adventure, and probably the thing you will want to be most prepared for is getting sea sick. There are preventative measures that you can take to make sure you don’t spend the day with your head over the side of the boat. It is not fun! Follow the directions on the package and be sure to drink plenty of water and your day should be great.

Prior to your trip, you’ll receive detailed instructions for your day, but you can be prepared to bring plenty of food and drinks on board. There is no place to stop for water, so that should be the #1 thing on your shopping list. You’ll also want to bring plenty of food and snacks, including any meals to get you through the day. Food and drinks are not provided so it is important that you plan in advance and bring everything with you for your day. Full-day Hawaii fishing adventures last for 8-10 hours, so it is very important that you are prepared.

A day spent at sea can go one of two ways: you can have a ton of fun fishing, or you can spend your day sea sick or hungry, or both, and that is not something that you want. Take your motion sickness medicine, drink plenty of water, and bring anything you will want to eat during the day. All of this preparation will make your Hawaii fishing adventure a great day on the open ocean.
