Frequently Asked Questions

Can I keep my catch?
Yes! On a Private Charter we are happy to cut up your catch for your BBQ here in Hawaii; as much as can reasonably be enjoyed while you’re here.  On a Shared Charter we insist on sharing the catch with everyone on board.

What do I bring on my Kona fishing trip?
You bring your own food, drinks & sunscreen. We will supply ice, fishing rods, fishing reels and all gear and tackle.

What can we catch in Kona waters?
We fish for Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Short Nosed Spearfish, Ahi, Ono, Wahoo, Mahimahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Skip Jack Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, Rainbow Runners, and sometimes we catch sharks, too.

How many people go on a share fishing charter?
Six (6) people per boat.

What is your Cancellation Policy?
We offer a 100% refund if you cancel your charter 48-hours prior departure or if we cancel the charter due to weather related issues.  Within 48-hours the charter is non-refundable.  There are no refunds if we do not catch fish on your charter.

How many people can go on a private fishing charter?
Six people maximum. If you have more than 6 people, you can get multiple boats and have your own “mini” tournament.  Or you can book our Ocean Encounters boat which is a fully equipped fishing boat and has permitting to take more than six anglers.  Call our office for pricing on both options to find your best match!

Taking people fishing is a great way to reward your workers, say “Thank You” to your peers, as a prize for your Company parties, business awards, etc. Call us for ideas on how to make your trip extra special.

Our professional captains and boat crews provide expert experience and top-of-the-line equipment to ensure the best fishing advantage.
