Aloha, Covid 19 restrictions have impacted us greatly. We have suspended trips until further notice due to health department's recommendation. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience. Please check out Capt. Kimo at Hilo Ocean Adventures for possible bookings by clicking on this link. Come explore some of the finest fishing Hawaii has to offer with Malama Fishing Charters! Docked in the heart of Hilo, HI, Captain Tony and 1st Mate are never far from the offshore action. Targeting Pelagic species like Black, Blue and Striped Marlin, Yellowfin (Ahi) and Bluefin Tuna, MahiMahi (Dorado), Ono (Wahoo) and other species like occasional Opah (Moonfish) and Spearfish. Hilo, Hawaii is home to some of Hawaii’s most fertile fishing grounds. Also, Hilo has far less fishing pressure than Kona, making it virtually untapped. Our skilled crew, led by USCG certified Captain Tony, are here to help you make the most of your Hilo fishing experience. The best part about fishing with Captain Tony is that you don’t need any prior fishing experience to have a successful trip! He’ll make sure everyone on board is comfortable and confident with the techniques needed to land every fish that strikes your bait. Malama Fishing Charters offers a 1/2 day 4-5hr trip, ¾ day 6-7 hour trip, and Full day 8-9 hr trip. You’ll mainly be trolling for some of Hawaii’s most coveted pelagic predators such as Ono (Wahoo), Mahi Mahi (Dolphin, Dorado), Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Black Marlin, and the prized Ahi (Tuna). If you’d rather spend your trip deep dropping for other prized "Deep 7" species, just let Captain Tony know and he’ll be happy to oblige. While bottom fishing, we’ll likely hook up on Broadbill Swordfish, Grouper, Pink Snapper, Grey Snapper and possibly Moonfish (Opah). You’ll be fishing on Malama Fishing Charter’s custom built 32’ Radovich. She receives regular maintenance and is equipped with all of the latest fishing gear needed for a productive trip. Her outriggers will make it easier to troll multiple rods at once, and there’s also downriggers, 3 GPS plotter units, 3kw and 1kw fish finders, 72 mile Radar and a flybridge onboard. When nature calls, you can find a toilet on board as well. Your trip price for the day includes a first mate who will handle all of the rigging, baiting, and unhooking required. He’ll also be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the techniques you’ll be using and offer insight into specifics about the local gamefish. The trip price also includes use of all rods, reels, and terminal tackle, fresh/live bait, chips, water/soft drinks. Hawaii Island has been a fishing Mecca since the 1940's. It’s still a dream destination for avid fishermen and sportsmen alike. Whether it’s your favorite past time, your life passion, or you just want to do some casual offshore fishing, Malama Fishing Charters will tailor your trip to your needs, making it a life-long memory for you. We support sustainable fishing and ocean conservation practices to play our part to ensure Hilo’s fisheries stay healthy for future generations. We’re looking forward to meeting you and showing off Hilo’s world renowned fishing opportunities!
