You’re on an island. The fishing’s going to be good. But you’ll need to consider what you’re going for – big-game sportfishing? An extended trip? A custom charter? THE MODERN HONOLULU will connect you with crews that know just where to go for Pacific Blue Marlin, Tuna and Skip Jack Tuna (aku), Mahi Mahi and Wahoo (ono).
Blue Nun Sportfishing has been at it for more than 30 years. (Read: They know what they’re doing and make it fun.) Captain Bob McCowan shares extensive knowledge and top-of-the-line fishing gear and tackle; his crew loves to fish and wants you to love it, too – expect patient, helpful staff who make sure you have a good day whether you catch anything or not.
Sea Verse Sportfishing is a full-service charter company. The Sea Verse is a comfortable, 44-foot, twin-engine boat owned and manned by Captain Leon Severs, who’s been in business since 1970. Choose a half- or full-day trip – or a private sunset cruise off Waikiki, a bottom-fishing trip or an overnight voyage to another Hawaiian island.
Boom Boom Sportfishing’s mantra says everything: “We catch fish!” From THE MODERN HONOLULU, Boom Boom’s marina in Waianae is easy to access, and Oahu’s calm, leeward ocean hosts steep ledges just offshore that swarm with fish – Giant Pacific Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellow Fin and Skipjack Tuna and Sail Fish. You may even spot a whale while you’re out.
“ If you are visiting between November and February, don’t miss Waimea Bay on the North Shore where the island’s top surfers take on 30-foot waves ”
