Stay at the Modern Honolulu and explore Waikiki.

Hawaii fishing 

DEEP-SEA THRILLS

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).


WHIPSAW FISHING

WHIPSAW FISHING

Whipsaw Sportfishing, a preferred outfitter at THE MODERN HONOLULU, brings 50 years of fishing experience with Captain Don Hackman at the helm. This Waikiki-favorite outfitter once netted a 780-lb. marlin. Whipsaw is an air-conditioned luxury 35-foot CABO sport fishing vessel powered by twin 435hp Caterpillar diesel engines. Go on 4-, 6- or 8-hour fishing adventures.

BOOM BOOM SPORTFISHING

BOOM BOOM SPORTFISHING

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.

Insider Tips

  • Did you know that bananas are considered back luck on fishing boats? DO NOT bring them onboard.
  • Ask each charter company whether you can keep what you catch. Rules vary by company.
  • Bring all your essentials with you: hat, sunglasses, sun protection, motion sickness patch or pills, lunch and drinks (and seriously – no bananas).
