Nothing exemplifies the Hawaiian lifestyle like a day on the water.

A Maui sportfishing adventure from Lahaina may take you around the islands of Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe or Molokini, offering a fishing guest a rare experience afforded only a few of Hawaii's visitors! On our Maui trips you'll have a change to hook up to a variety of marlin species, mahi mahi (dorado), ahi (tuna), ono (wahoo) and more.

A Kona sportfishing expedition will lead on a hunt for some of the world's largest gamefish, into some of the finest sportfishing grounds available.

Other added benefits are the fabulous tropical sunrises, whale watching, maybe a spinner dolphin playing in the wake. As long-time residents of Maui and Kona, feel free to ask our opinions about the other activities, restaurants, hotels and places to see that you might otherwise miss during your stay in the islands.

Make no mistake, our #1 goal is doing everything we can to help you catch the fish of a lifetime! We are experienced tournament winners, so contact us and let's talk fishing today!
