Waikiki Deep Sea Fishing Charter

Location: Waikiki, Oahu

Hawaii deep sea fishing is some of the best in the world. Motor off the Honolulu coastline in a world class fishing boat with your experienced Captain and Crew in search of marlin, tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo and much more! This is the charter for guests who are wanting to land the catch of a lifetime.

Owned and operated by former NFL player, Ashley Lelie, our goal is to share our passion for fishing with beginners and experienced anglers alike and share the breathtaking natural beauty around the island.

What to Expect

We start our day departing from Kewalo Basin Marina, just minutes outside Waikiki. After an introduction to your captain and crew we will head out into the deep blue.

With years of fishing experience, the crew knows what fish have recently been biting and which fishing grounds they have been catching. This knowledge increases your likelihood of hooking up with a big fish that will provide a good fight. Once you arrive to the prime fishing spots get ready to experience the adrenaline rush of fighting and landing a worthy fish.

Private Charter

For groups of up to 6 passengers who want the boat to themselves. The group decides who gets to fight the fish and how the fish is divided at the end of the trip.

Shared Charter

Shared trips are for the lone angler or smaller groups that don’t want to pay for the whole boat. Once we get 4 confirmed passengers, it’s a go! After you book your preferred date and time, we will ask you to give us 2 backup days you would be willing to go. This will allow us to set you up with other guests.

The Captain

Captain Ashley Lelie moved to Oahu at the age of six. He was a military brat who immediately fell in love with Hawaii’s culture and way of life. Ashley walked-on to the University of Hawaii’s football team and became the school’s highest-ever NFL draft pick (19th Denver Broncos). After a 7-year NFL career, he moved home and took to the water.

Ashley has been fishing from shore his whole life and sportfishing for the last 10 years. With over 35 years of fishing experience, Ashley has the knowledge and skills to make sure that you have a memorable fishing experience!

The Boat

Sandy is a newly renovated 46’ 1985 Viking Rybovich fishing yacht that runs on twin Detroit Diesels that push out about 900 HP combined. Her spacious and clean interior is fully air-conditioned which includes two cabins and two marine heads that can accommodate 6 adults comfortably.

There’s a kitchen, microwave, refrigerator, couch, and recliner in the main salon plus plenty of exterior outdoor seating. As for gear, we have all that you need! We run 130 Shimano rods and reels along with other custom set-ups for smaller game.

What to Bring

  • Food and Water which can be stored in our refrigerator (or bring a cooler)
  • Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
  • Alcohol is allowed, please bring canned beverages, no glass.
  • Motion sickness medication (if prone to sea sickness)

Keep Your Catch - Fish Policy

When dividing the catch, we start with the smallest fish first. No fish weighing over 70 lbs. will be cut into. Fish over 70 lbs. are taken to the local fish auction which helps sustain local businesses. This helps us keep our prices as affordable as possible while also helping the crew make a living.

Sea Sickness Policy

On a private charter, you have the option to tell us if you want to cut the trip short. However, there will be no refunds. We suggest to come out of the cabin and get some fresh air to try and fight it.

On a shared charter, you will have to fight it because we will not be able to ask the other customers to cut their trip short. Please keep this in mind when booking.
