Kona is considered one of the world's greatest fishing destinations. The beautiful blue waters found off the Kona-Keauhou coasts are rich in sport fishing history. Nowhere else in the world is it possible to catch a blue marlin over 1,000-pounds on any given day at any time of the year. Big blue marlin are not the only fish that abound though! During early May, when we have the Big Island Bash, there is a great chance to catch also striped marlin, spearfish, big ahi (yellowfin tuna), mahi mahi, ono (wahoo) and otaro (skipjack tuna) too.
Space on the boats is limited to 6 people per charter boat. Limited boats are reserved for this event. Sign up early for a chance at catching the big one in our Big Island Bash tournament!!
