Full-day Kona Fishing Charters

Full-Day Kona Fishing Charters

We offer two full-day Kona Fishing Charters which include everything needed to catch blue marlin and other pelagic species that inhabit the waters just off the Kona coast. These charters are designed to provide the greatest number of options throughout the day to fish different areas, techniques as well as incoming and outgoing tides.  Fish the calm, blue waters off the Kona coast with one of Hawaii’s most experienced captains and crews.  We include all the rods, reels tackle, bait, ice and expertise and the action waits just a short 5-10 minute run out of the harbor from our slip. While we primarily target Blue Marlin, the same gear and tactics produce results for other species such as Ahi Tuna (Yellowfin Tuna), Ono (Wahoo), Mahimahi (Dorado), Striped Marlin, and Shortbilled Spearfish.

These species are found year-round here in Kona which makes this such a popular and productive fishery. We have been fishing the waters off the Kona coast for over 50 years, so you can be assured we have the knowledge and experience to make your fishing charter a success.
