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 and even snorkel. It’s important to note that there are only a handful 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.
Hokua accommodates up to 10 anglers at one time, plus additional “riders”. She is licensed for up to 35 passengers, but We recommend keeping it under 20 for a really comfortable trip!

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.
Double back fishing!
Captains Brian and Matt accompanied our group of seven in taking us to our early morning bottom fishing. Our first hour was uneventful but the next two hours were exciting when we caught lots of blue lined snappers and some keeper goat fish and some gray snapper.We caught a barracuda but our line was not strong enough resulting to snapping the line out!
Trolling the last hour was fun when my wife caught a mahi mahi and captain Brian decided to double back to the same site hoping we might catch some more mahi mahi, instead we caught a medium sized gray snapper. What a great time we had. Thanks
Great Boat, Great Staff, Danielle knew her fishing and helped us pull out some great snapper & tuna! We were on a shared fishing trip and the group was great!
