Below is a list of all the Maui fishing charters operating regularly off Maui. The listings below should not be considered an endorsement. I do not publish my “best to avoid” list on the internet. Call me, I can fill you in.
The longer you fish for the better your odds. For that reason the charter rates listed below are for the longest duration offered. Many of the boats offer additional charter lengths and departure times. Departure times vary with season, bite, moon phase, and captain’s gut.
For further details on specific Maui fishing charters, click on the boats’ name.
Prices effective Jan 01, 2018. Prices on the sport fishing charters do not include tax and harbor fees (total 7.166%). Bottom fishing charter prices do include these fees.

All Maui fishing charters are not created equal. I don’t publish my “don’t bother” list online. The island is too small for that. What might be the best charter for some, may not be appropriate for others. Contact me. Tell me a bit about the people in your fishing party, when you’re coming, etc. and I’ll recommend the right captain/vessel for you.
All the fishing companies I recommend keep their vessels and equipment well maintained. Nearly all boats have bathrooms, only a few have air conditioning. Planning a family fishing charter? I’ve got some options.
* A note on capacity: The numbers in the table above refer to total passengers as licensed by the USCG. Those boats licensed for 10 or more often limit guest count for the comfort of their guest. Please contact me for specifics if you’re booking a Maui fishing charter for more than 6 people.
