Shared Fishing Charters in Kona, Big Island, Hawaii

Are you looking to charter a fishing boat on the Big Island, but for just for yourself or one or two others? 

If you would like to try a Shared charter, instead of chartering the whole boat, you can join others and just book at a per person rate. Shared charters require at least 4 people to sign up for the fishing charter to operate.

Sea Wife II offer 4 hour shared charters each day, leaving in the morning at around 7:30 am or at 12 pm in the afternoon. There are also rates for non fishing Spectators on these shared fishing charters.  

Sea Wife will take 4 to 8 anglers and up to 4 spectators, all anglers are assigned a rod and your position is rotated throughout the trip. They usually troll from the harbor with all lines out, one for every angler. Once the boat is at a buoy, floater or other floating structure, the boat will then use two bait rods. Some days everyone catches, some days not. On the way back, the boat will again troll for the big game fish.

On a shared charter, the boat will target smaller game, increasing the chance of everyone onboard catching a fish. Those not fishing can enjoy a great view from the shaded top deck, relax and sit back in the beautiful warm pacific waters.

2014 Firecracker Open - July 5th, 6th 2014, Kona Hawaii

Kona, Hawaii's signature “Big Game” Tournament that scores ahi and marlin points for the base purse. Optional categories for the largest marlin and ahi of each day and of the two day tournament.

The 2013 Firecracker Open was won by Capt. Brian Wargo who showed that tenacity and the fact that it ain’t over til it’s over can pay off, as they moved from no score to top score with John Bowers doing the angling duties.  According to John, “I pretty much sat on my ass until the last hour, fought the fish and now have to sit on a plane back to California to go to work in the morning.” Such is life at the Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series. 17 Blue Marlin and  10 Ahi were caught in two days. Check back for finals. This 513 pound blue was literally “fished up” in the last minutes of the last day.

Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing Welcomes Muireann Mariel

Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing is proud to announce that we are now working with another great fishing charter boat in Waikiki called Muireann Mariel.

The Muireann Mariel is a large 53 foot Hattares luxury air conditioned sport fishing vessel and our first boat which docks at the Ala Wai Harbor in Waikiki, right next to the Hawaii Prince Hotel and a stone throw from The Hilton Hawaiian Village and the World famous Waikiki Beach.

Captain JR Chalker and crew will take you on the ultimate fishing adventure, aboard the Muireann Mariel, large and comfortable, offering custom rods equipped with Shimano Tiaga reels from light tackle to big game.

If you’re not a die-hard angler or just want sometime away from your lines, no worries, they also offer WiFi, a PS3, and air-conditioning. Even better, she is outfitted with Naiad stabilizers, which cuts back on the roll of the vessel, decreasing the occasional bouts of unpleasant sea sickness that can happen to even the most experienced angler.

Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing now works with 33 boats in Hawaii at 9 marinas. We will find you a great boat wherever you are on the isles.

Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing Legend Marlin Parker

Great News for anyone wanting to fish The Big Island, Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing is now working with one of the worlds top Marlin Fishermen. (Marlin Parker) Marlin has 3 Pacific Grandeurs and 38 years experience. Its an honor to be working with a legend. If you take a charter on one of his 2 boats, ask him what he did with his 1400 lbs Marlin after it was caught!!

Marlin Parker began chartering professionally in 1976. While at the helm of his first boat, the ISLANDER - only months after receiving his captain's license - he landed what, at the time, was the largest blue marlin ever weighed in at Kailua-Kona on 80-pound class tackle, a 1,257-pound monster. It was a prophetic beginning for this skipper who is regarded as one of the best marlin fisherman in the islands, and even worldwide.
