Breathtaking Maui scenery … optimal sportfishing conditions … impeccably maintained and outfitted 42′ (loa) Dorado sportfisher … an experienced and courteous crew. Put it all together and you’ve begun to picture your Maui sportfishing experience aboard Lahaina Maui’s #1 highliner with Captain Deli! Whether you’re a novice or an experienced sportfishing enthusiast, you’ll discover that deep sea fishing off Maui, Hawaii is unlike any other sportfishing experience you’ve ever had. 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 these Maui trips you’ll have a chance to hook up to a variety of Marlin species, Mahi Mahi (dorado), Ahi (tuna), Ono (wahoo) and more. These trips involve a slight run offshore (30-40min) to get to the deep water where all the game fish you'll target will be caught on the troll. Trolling is when one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water. The fishing rods are placed in rod holders and the lines are set with the lures at varying distances behind the boat held apart by the outriggers to avoid line tangling. Trolling speed varies depending on water and weather conditions. The ideal position of the bait is skimming on the surface of the water to mimic the behavior of an injured or fast-moving fish, this is what attracts the game fish we are targeting. Everything is provided when you go out with Captain Deli and his crew from top-of-the-line rods and reels, to bait and tackle, to ice cold waters and fishing licenses. All they recommend you bring is your sunscreen (lotion only), non-marking shoes, and any snacks and drinks you'd like to enjoy onboard. Captain Doug and Crew will take care of the rest to ensure you make memories that last a lifetime aboard their boat! Read More

Kona is a sport fisherman's paradise, and is uniquely situated to give you access to some of the best offshore fishing anywhere in the world. Captain John and his crew are exceptional anglers who will do everything in their power to get you hooked up on some of the biggest, baddest, fastest pelagic sportfish in the Pacific. Once you leave the Honokohau Harbor, you'll enter the fishing grounds immediately. Most big game fisheries around the world require a 50+ mile run offshore to starting finding fish, but not here—in Kona, your targets are literally swimming right out of the harbor! Nowhere else in the world is such successful big-game fishing found in such calm waters. Sea conditions off the Kona coast are typically calm and sunny, and the island’s steep bottom puts big game fishing just 1/4-mile offshore. Once lines are in the water, you'll be fishing for the largest gamefish to roam the planet: Blue Marlin. Hawaii has claimed the largest Blue Marlin in the world, and has seen many world records caught in her blue water. While your odds of a big Marlin are more favorable than any other location in the Pacific Ocean, this doesn’t mean that’s all you can catch! Here, there will be great opportunities for Ono (Wahoo), Striped Marlin, Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Shortnose Spearfish, Yellowfin Tuna and Skipjack Tuna! These fish are each amazing eating, and a fisherman's dream in terms of their fighting ability and endurance. To hook these fish, you'll be primarily live-baiting and trolling with lures. Lures are the most common fishing practice as it allows us to cover a larger area in a day. For live-baiting, we use small tunas or mackerels that are caught during the charter and can be fun for kids to reel in! You'll be fishing aboard a 35' custom Funai sportfishing vessel, purpose-built for hunting giant sportfish here in Hawai'i. She runs on twin 260HP Yanmar engines to get you out there in no time. She's also comfortable, clean, fast and very maneuverable—perfect for the fishing trip of a lifetime! She's equipped with outriggers to catch fish on the troll, plus all kinds of onboard amenities to enhance your experience. All you need to bring for a great experience is some sunscreen (no spray), sunglasses, and a hat. You can also bring some snacks and drinks on board—there's a big cooler! Please leave marking shoes by the dock. Read More

These are all on the menu on this trip, although of course there are no guarantees. You'll be in great hands with Captain Ikena.

    Shout out to Cap'n Harry! Great fishing outing! He knows his stuff! The boat was great! We enjoyed fresh fish for the week! Looking forward to going out again next time!

    We enjoyed our trip with Jay. We had a big fish on the line but lost it, Jay guessed it to be around 300 lbs. We raised two others unfortunately we didn't catch one this trip, but it was fun trying. The captian answered all our questions and told us alot deep sea fishing. He was enjoyable to talk too. He spotted a large school of dolphins playing and he took us out of his way for a closer look.

    Had an awesome time, and definitely once in a lifetime trip! Captain Gaige was very welcoming and helpful and his first mate was also very helpful with my boys and I fishing. The boat is extremely well maintained and cared for, and it sounds like they work hard to make sure it’s up to date with the latest technology to make for a great experience. We were hoping for a fun day, and got just that with our first Blue Marlin and a spearfish as well! Definitely some fun action! I will definitely be scheduling again the next time I make it out!

    Dale and his deckhand were extremely professional, my father is an older gentleman that is not very mobile, they went above and beyond and accommodating for him, and my son caught his first blue marlin!!!!! They were wonderful and I’m looking forward to another day on the ocean with him tomorrow, if it was anything like today, it will be a day to remember

    These guys made for a great fishing trip. Very hospitable, friendly, and knowledgeable. Boat was clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

    Capt. Dale and first mate Jack were great. The 31’ Bertram was clean and spacious and ran smooth as can be, and the canopy came in handy on a Sunny day. While the Marlin fishing was slow (listening to the radio, none of the boats in the tournament caught), we couldn’t have had a better time swapping stories with Dale and Jack, downing some Big Island brews, taking in the scenery, and watching whales breach. Hope to do it again soon! -Jonathan with Captain Experiences

    Everying as promised. If you want a fishing experience captain Dale is your man. We had an amazing day and Dale and Jack took care of us. Can't say enough about the experience and we had ages 8 to 80 involved. Great times.
