All Maui sport fishing charters are NOT created equal.
There are close to two dozen companies offering fishing charters on Maui. Most of these focus on sport fishing. The best Maui sport fishing charters go out every day, keep their gear in good condition and catch fish on a fairly regular basis. No boat catches every day. Fishing is fishing, after all.
What might be a good Maui sport fishing charter for some, may not be the best trip for others. Contact me, tell me about yourself. I’ll fill you in. Below is a list of the sport fishing charters I recommend most often. All have bathrooms, a few have air conditioning, but most importantly, these guys know how to catch fish on Maui!
