Shared bottom fishing and private group charters
The “Hokua” is a 40′ Catamaran out of Maalaea Harbor that offers a wide range of services. Her most common trips involve EITHER shared snorkeling (5 hours), or shared bottom fishing (4 hours) charters. As with other South Maui bottom fishing boats, Hokua frequently trolls for larger game to/from their bottom fishing / snorkeling spots.
Hokua is an excellent choice for private charters. She is one of the few fishing boats capable of accommodating groups of more than 6 people. On their private charters, they can sportfish, bottomfish, do a bit of seasonal whale watching, and even snorkel. It’s important to note that there are only a handful of fishing boats licensed to put passengers in the water.
This is a safe and stable vessel for school-aged children and is appropriate for ages 4 and up. Younger children can be accommodated as “riders”, though the boat limits the total number of very young children to 2.
Hokua accommodates up to 14 anglers at one time, plus additional riders. She is licensed for up to 35 passengers.

This was a great family outing. Wish we would have had another day booked. The 4 hours goes quickly. Great crew and a comfortable boat. We will definitely book another trip when we return.
Recently fished with Captain Brian and crew Matt and La.We had a great time ,caught some fish, had a whale breach not 30yards from the boat ,and was pleased to see the crew stop and pick up some trash we encountered. The captain and crew couldn't have been nicer. Thanks
Mahalo to the crew of Hokua
We enjoyed the fishing, ride, and views. Capt. Aaron and 1st mate Jordon did a great job.
