Private Fishing Aboard the Pi’ikea

On this PRIVATE tour, Makai Sportfishing requires a minimum of 1 person to confirm the tour. Makai Sportfishing’s vessel, the Pi’ikea, can take a maximum of 6 people. Their PRIVATE tour is just that. Makai Sportfishing will close the boat to other groups and keep it to just your group! Once on board, they’ll give a short safety briefing and get on your way.

Typically, they’ll begin setting the lines in the water as you are exiting the outer break wall and officially declare the fishing has started!

Makai Sportfishing will look at the weather, rely on chatter from other captains and make notes of where they were catching fish in the days before to help determine our path for your tour. Based on the length of the trip and time of year you may not be more than one mile or two offshore or you may go 12-15 miles offshore.

80%-90% of what Makai Sportfishing does will be trolling with artificial lures. On occasion they will use dead bait and chunk bait and do a surface jig at the buoys. (When they use live bait, the bait is to be caught first thing in the morning).

While on board, you’ll have access to our AC cabin with two different couches, stand up fridge for any food and drinks (but NO GLASS allowed), microwave, usable sink and full stand-up head (restroom). Up the stairs to the helm, they have a large storage box for seating, with a hardtop canopy for shade.

What to Bring

Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, light jacket, and a camera. Recommend packing a lunch, snacks, and drinks (NO GLASS allowed). Activity does not include a lunch option.
