Hokua Private Fishing & Custom Charters

Enjoy an exciting deep sea fishing adventure or a near shore bottom fishing excursion.  The offshore trolling trip goes for Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahimahi, Ono and other pelagic species.  The Hokua is one of the only Maui boats that is able to take more than 6 passengers for offshore fishing.  The bottom fishing excursion stays closer to shore and goes for smaller reef and bottom fish.  The Hokua offers the option of a morning or afternoon trip or you can do the full day.  Hokua does run other types of trips in the morning, so we recommend reserving your private fishing charter early to ensure availability.

The boat provides all of the fishing gear and no fishing license is required. The boat also provides water and ice and you are welcome to bring your own lunch and drinks. If you prefer, Hokua will provide a catered deli style lunch for $15/person.   Custom catering is also available.  

Hokua provides a unique private charter for all your special occasions.  Wedding ceremonies, graduations, birthdays, family vacations & reunions are just some of the events you can celebrate aboard the Hokua. Aboard Hokua you can plan the perfect party or adventure for you group. Choose from snorkeling, offshore fishing, bottom fishing, sightseeing or just cruising around.  It's all up to you. The Hokua carries fishing gear, masks, snorkels and fins and also has SNUBA available (extra cost).
