Honolulu Fishing Charter

Join us for an exciting day of deep sea fishing off Waikiki in blue Hawaiian waters!

The largest fish ever caught on rod and reel, an 1805 lb. blue marlin was caught right here off Honolulu. Not only does Honolulu deep sea fishing offer a chance at a record fish such as this, but also the best opportunities in Hawaii to catch other game fish like mahi mahi, ono, ahi, and skipjack tuna.

We are located at Kewalo Basin, minutes from Waikiki and some of the best natural fishing grounds Hawaii has to offer. Maggie Joe is a 53 foot custom sportfisher designed especially for sportfishing in Hawaiian waters. Powered by a pair of 375 HP Caterpillar diesels, Maggie Joe features a spacious cockpit and bridge, fully air-conditioned cabin, complete entertainment center and a full galley. Maggie Joe is a US Coast Guard inspectedand certified vessel and is very well maintained.
