Fishing in Hawaii

Hawaii offers an excellent chance to land the catch of your lifetime!

Fish from the scenic shores or out on the ocean from a boat chartered by season experts.

The waters off of Kona on the Big Island are the most famous for sport fishing. This is where the Annual Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is held each summer.

You can find more spots for fishing on each island: Oʻahu, Maui, Kauaʻi and the Big Island.
