38' - Ruckus

38' - Ruckus

38 Foot Bertram Boat Based in Honolulu. Charter Prices are per boat (Maximum 6 people) and  include rods, reels, tackle, bait. 

38’ Bertram. The Ruckus  is spacious, comfortable and custom configured to fish the waters in Hawaii .  RUCKUS is a one stateroom, one bath, air-conditioned vessel that boasts a flat screen television, a High Definition Digital Antenna that can catch the big game up to 65 miles offshore.    The bridge alone has more than enough room to comfortably seat most of the charter. 
RUCKUS is considered one of the best (if not THE best) striking boat in the Harbor.  While there are no guarantees, rest assured that RUCKUS and Crew are genuine professionals and you have a high probability of catching fish!
Daily deep sea fishing charters depart Kewalo Basin, conveniently located next to Waikiki on Oahu, at 6:00 AM. Just bring your food and drink for the day as large coolers and ice are already on board. 

The Equipment… RUCKUS uses Penn and Shimano big game reels which are provided.  We will supply everything for your day on the water except food and drink.  We also provide the ice and coolers for food and drink.  There is no requirement for fishing licenses.

The Fish…Five Star Sportfishing trolls for Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna), and Ono (Wahoo).  These pelagic fish are caught all year round in Hawaii.  We will gladly cut and share up to 50 pounds of fish for fish weighing less than 100 pounds.  Unfortunately all fish weighing over 100 pounds are required to stay with the boat.

Charters…RUCKUS can be booked exclusively for Full, ¾, and ½ day private charters for parties up to six persons.  We also offer Full and ½ day “shared” charters.  Shared charters are for people who don’t mind fishing with others.  Shared charters are most economical for single persons or couples since you are “sharing” the boat (and cost) with up to five others people.

This boat offers private charters. You will be the only group on the boat and can ask the Captain to take you to certain locations. On a private charter if you want to bring the boat in early, you can do this. There are many advantages to booking the boat to yourselves.

On this boat you will not be the only people on the boat. You will not be able to decide on when you want to to come back to shore. The captain will decide on where you go fishing and you will be on a specific time frame decided by the charter company.

This boat does not allow children under the age of 5. This boat is not recommended for people that are pregnant, have a bad heart or are overweight. If you tend to get sea sick, we do not recommend going on this boat.
