Charter Tips

What do I need to bring?
This is the beautiful sunshine-filled Hawaii however, a light jacket is a good idea on Kona deep sea fishing trips (it’s chilly with the trade winds in the morning and night off shore), sunscreen, food, drinks, take Dramamine if necessary for sea sickness 24 hours before trip. We provide fishing gear, tackle, refrigerator, ice and cooler for food and drinks.
Can I take my fish home?

With Ku'uipo Sport Fishing, for fish under 100 lbs; you are welcome to eating portions up to 50% of the fish up to 50 lbs total of fish. Any fish over 100 lbs will not be cut. All fish cutting is ultimately at the captain’s discretion. Make sure to ask for homestyle recipes!
Shared vs Private charter?
On a shared sportfishing charter (Tuesdays and Saturdays only) you will actually share the boat with other people on the trip (up to 6 maximum). You purchase individual seats on a shared charter. If you were to purchase a private sportfishing charter you and your party will be the sole occupants on the boat.
