Come aboard the Intrepid and experience the excitement of deep sea fishing in the pristine waters of Hawaii's Big Island. Our captain and crew enjoy working with anglers of all skill levels - novice to expert.
Unlike many popular big game fishing destinations around the world where you may have up to a 1 1/2-hour boat ride before getting to the fishing grounds, Hawaii's Kona Coast offers the potential to catch a monster fish within minutes of leaving Honokohau Harbor. Due to the formation of the Hawaiian Islands by volcanic activity, the Intrepid can be over thousands of feet of blue water within a very short distance from the coast. Fish for blue marlin, striped marlin, spearfish, swordfish, yellowfin tuna, big eye tuna, mahi-mahi (dolphin) and wahoo. Record-sized fish have been caught just minutes from our harbor.
Come enjoy Hawaii's most productive deep sea fishing area! Half day, three-quarter day, full day, custom and overnight sport fishing charters are available. You may also request trips involving a combination of deep sea fishing, snorkeling or whale watching. Customer satisfaction is our first priority!
The safety of our guests is a paramount concern. Captain Cintas is First Aid and CPR certified. The Intrepid is one of only 3 Kona charter boats awarded with the US Coast Guard's Premier Safety Certification. The Intrepid's deep cockpit is very safe for small children.
Keep your catch. We will fillet and package your fish. We can prepare your fish for shipment (under 25 pounds). We can even recommend a local restaurant that will be happy to cook your fresh fish so you can celebrate your catch over a delicious meal!
Includes snacks, water, and non-alcoholic beverages.
