Hawaii Kayak Fishing Tours

Hawaii Kayak Fishing Tours
In Hawaii, you don't need a license to fish the ocean water that surrounds the islands. But you do need a way to get to the fish. In recent years, tours that combine sea kayaking with fishing are attracting visitors for day or half-day trips. Hawaii has several tour operators that offer kayak fishing trips.

Aquahunters

Aquahunters arranges and operates full and half-day fishing and kayaking tours off Oahu. Tours include a guide, kayaks, fishing gear, bait and tackle, paddle leashes, use of VHF radios, safety gear and photos of your day on the water. The early part of the tour is spent learning basic paddling techniques. Kayakers typically fish for ono, ulua and kahala. Bring sun screen, a sun hat, sunglasses and a long sleeve shirt.
