How much of our time is actually spent fishing?

It does not take long to get to the fishing grounds on Kauai. Just 15 minutes out, and you’re working the ledge for Wahoos.
Once we’re over 1 mile out, the water is 1,000’s of feet deep.

What types of fish can we catch & is there seasonality?

There is no downtime when fishing in Kauai and we have great availability of fish year round.
Below are the peak times for different species:

Year-Round Blue Marlin can be around.
February through April, there are good Mahimahi runs.
April & May, the Wahoo are abundant on the ledge.
June through September, are the big Yellowfin Tuna months (one hundred to two hundred pounders!)
In the Winter, we have Striped Marlin & Spearfish. Big Eye Tuna and Skipjacks are also around with smaller Yellowfin.
You just never know what you’re going to catch until you get out there and try your luck.

What other wildlife may we see?

During your trip, you will be able to observe some of our amazing natural habitats. Don’t be surprised if you see whales or dolphins swimming around. You may also see endangered seabirds like the Blue Footed Booby. Take some time and see what our beautiful waters of Kauai have to offer along with the equipment such as this backpack fishing rod we will provide for tourists.

In the winter and spring seasons, while fishing you can watch the spectacular whale activity. The humpback whales come every year from Alaska to breed and give birth. The males are competing for the females. There is nothing like seeing an eighty thousand pound, forty-foot-long mammal completely airborne jumping out of the water. If your lucky, you can see the parents teaching their babies how to swim and jump out of the water. We also have many types of dolphins, Seabirds like the Albatros and frigate bird, Monk seals and sea turtles. You never know what you might see while hunting for that fish pile, then the action begins!
