Q: What to bring on a fishing trip?

A: This is beautiful and sunshiney Hawaii however, a light jacket is a good idea on Oahu 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.

Q: What if I get really sea sick?

A: If it’s a private charter and your party wants to go home we will go… if it’s a share we will put it to a vote. We are on the ocean and there will be waves so if you do get sea sick take the necessary precautions like Dramamine or doctor prescribed patch.  We will be deep sea fishing off the island of Oahu so although it is not very rough all the time, we are in deep water and it can get rocky.  Besides Dramamine, the best cure to sea sickness out on the water on a sport fishing charter is hanging out on deck in the fresh air.

Q: Can I take home my fish??

A: After an exciting day of Oahu deep sea fishing, who wouldn’t be excited about taking home their catch?
