What To Know Before You Go

We provide breakfast bars, snacks, water and juice on all charters. Please feel free to bring any food or beverages you might enjoy while on the boat. We have coolers on board with ice for you to store whatever you do bring. It's recommended that you leave a cooler in your car, since we will happily clean and filet your catch for you to take home after the charter ends.


While the Kona sea is typically quite mild, there is always a chance of seasickness while on the water.  If anyone in your party is prone to motion sickness, please prepare for that possibility prior to boarding. There are various wristbands (Valerie likes these) and OTC remedies like Bonine and Dramamine that can offer relief. If you do decide to go this route you should take these medications at least 30 minutes before departure. If you wait until you’re on the boat, it’s too late.

The harbor is north of Kona and south of the airport. It’s the 3rd light after the airport – just look for a palm tree-lined road leading toward the ocean (you can see sailboat masts from the highway). After turning in to the harbor, take the first right, then immediately left into the parking lot behind the red-roofed building. Park here and follow the ramp down to the dock. Follow the dock to the end along the front of the blue-roofed Harbor House Restaurant. You will see our wooden dock steps behind the boat.


  • A maximum of six people, no minimum.

  • Our crew will gladly fillet and package your catch for you but we encourage catch and release of all Blue Marlin.

  • Hawaii excise tax of 4.712% will be applied to all charges. If you book directly through the web site, the tax is included. Otherwise, it is incurred at the time of the charter.

  • Credit card transactions are subject to a 4% surcharge. This will be collected on the day of the charter if not paid in full at time of booking.

  • A deposit of 20% of the charter fee is required to hold your reservation. 

  • Cancellation Policy: Deposit is fully refundable up to 24 hours prior to the start time of the charter.  Deposit is forfeited if reservation is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the start of the charter. 

  • Crew gratuities: The crew works hard for you; including filleting your fish after the trip. Much like servers, a large portion of their salary comes from your tips.
