Hilo Deep Sea Fishing Charter

Location: Hilo, Big Island

The Big Island of Hawaii is one of the world's top deep sea fishing destinations. And the calm waters of Hilo Bay, Hawai’i is home to some of most fertile fishing grounds and least less crowded waters making it virtually untapped.

Our crew of skilled fishermen is here to help you in catching Hawaiian Pelagic fish, targeting Ono (wahoo), Mahi Mahi (Dorado), and the prized Ahi (tuna). As one of a few fishing charter boats in East Hawai’i, you can expect to be out on an uncrowded fishing experience in remote, Big Island waters.

What to Expect

We start our charter by boarding the 28ft Monohull Fishing boat, the Moana Mea A'a. We then depart from the Wailoa Boat Harbor located in the heart of the historic downtown Hilo. As we motor through the calm waters of Hilo Bay we search or pods of wild dolphins to view who frequently enjoy swimming up to the fishing boat and gliding in our wake.

As we approach the mouth of the bay, the captain and crew will explain safety precautions before entering the deep water. Once past the break wall, we are officially in deep sea fishing territory.

Because of the uncrowded remoteness of Hilo town you will quickly realize we are the only boat on the water, making for a unique no pressure fishing experience.

Now 15 miles out to see we drop the lines and troll for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, etc. Your captain will help you hook up and can help reel in the fish to make sure you have the best chances of landing your catch. All while enjoy the views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanos.
