Going After Big Game Fish On the Garden Island!

Kauai is known as the Garden Island due to its lush terrain and beautiful landscapes. Adventure also awaits you on Kauai’s warm and blue ocean waters where you can go deep sea fishing for a variety of exciting species including ‘Ahi (Yellow Fin Tuna), Mahimahi (Dorado), Ono (Wahoo) or even a 1000-pound A‘u (Marlin)!

Most Kaua‘i fishing charter companies operate out of Nawiliwili Harbor in Lihue on the east shore though there are also charters from Port Allen on the southwest shore and also from the north shore.

Shared as well as private fishing charters are available, and trips typically run either four or eight hours. You can choose whether you would like to go after big game fish or instead troll for bottom fish. 

Less than two miles from Nāwiliwili Harbor is the 100-fathom ledge (1fathom = 6ft), and another three miles puts you on the 1,000-fathom ledge. You may also choose to go after inshore species including Uku (Grey Snapper), Ulua (Jack), Kaku (Barracuda), Kamanu (Rainbow Runner) and Sea Bass.

Some charter fishing boats are exclusively tag and release unless the fish is injured and won’t survive if released, or if the fish is a potential world record. Tag and release has been gaining recognition as an important part of billfish conservation. Some companies offer taxidermy mounting services and will ship your prize catch back to your home.

Inexperienced fishing enthusiasts are welcomed on these charters and given instruction as well as fishing tips. Equipment may include depth finders and other fish-locating devices. Your captain will recommend different fishing styles for particular target fish.

Kauai charter fishing adventures offer a variety of options including fully-equipped, large custom fishing boats with many amenities including bathrooms, hot showers and more.
