You can spend a full day with Chupu Charters and enjoy the all-out thrill provided by deep-sea fishing from one of the best locations in Hawaii.

Here you’ll tangle with Pacific Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado and many other species that will test your mettle.
On the island of Oahu, look for the Aikane Sportfishing charter company and you’ll be sure to find an amazing experience onboard one of their 42-foot fishing machines. Their knowledge of the world of sport fishing is unsurpassed, and you can rest assured these guys will offer the ultimate big-game experience for anyone regardless of skill levels.
This charter outfit is managed by Sonny Rivera, a native of Oahu who has worked in all kinds of fishing-related jobs over the last 40 years or so. This means that you can expect excellent customer service and a team experienced in all aspects of deep-sea charter fishing. They are also one of only a few charters that let you keep all of your catch, as sharing the catch with the boat is normally the Hawaiian charter boat tradition.
We have saved what we consider to be one of the best for last – that is the “Big Island” fishing charters with Tom Barefoot’s Tours.
They are a big fleet of charters located on the Kona Coast, a place often called by many the “Mecca” for Hawaiian sport fishing. This is in part because of its massive drop off into the ocean that immediately puts you in contact with some largest fish in the Pacific without having to get too far away from the coast.
Here you can book a whole boat for you and your friends or family at very reasonable rates with a professional captain and fishing crew that will have you in pursuit of some of the biggest and meanest fish on the Big Island of Hawaii.
They offer charters of 4, 6 and 8 hours, but those who are truly serious about their fishing will certainly want to book a full day’s worth of fishing. All of the equipment, bait and licenses are provided by the charter company.
