Fishing Charters in Kauai & Kapa’a

Deep Sea Sport Fishing in Kauai

imageKauai has some of the best fishing grounds around the globe, especially off the coast of Kapa’a on the Eastside. Captain Lance Keener (owner/operator) possesses the knowledge and experience to get the fish on the boat, incorporating various techniques he’s picked up from around the world. The vessel you’ll be aboard is a 30 x 10 foot Wilson, wider than the majority of deep sea fishing boats on the island, and is equipped with modern, top-of-the-line equipment. The combination of an awesome sport fishing boat, captain, crew & gear will make your trip one not to be forgotten.

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep sea sport fishing is awesome all year round here on Kauai. All pelagic species are present here in the waters off Kauai. Depending on the time of year, one species can be more prevalent than others. For example, Yellow Fin Tuna “Ahi” in the 100 plus pound range are more abundant during Spring/Summer. But we catch them all year round, 15-70lbs, still serving as a nice sized fish! Other fish like the Blue Marlin, which are the largest of the bill fish family, are more prevalent during the summer months. Once winter and spring roll around the Striped Marlin start showing up. They range from 30 to 150 pounds, giving you the chance for a catch of a lifetime.IMG_3209
