Ma’alaea Maui luxury sport fishing charters
Departing from Ma’alaea harbor, the “Excellence” is Maui’s largest luxury sport fishing yacht. This sleek, 52′ Buddy Davis Sportfisherman has been completely refurbished and re-powered with two man 1200HP twin engines and the latest in electronics and fish finders, Excellence is made to fish, and she does so at the pinnacle of style! The vessel features two staterooms, two full baths, a remodeled galley and an air-conditioned salon complete with Fusion surround sound.
Captain Chris Dennis, a licensed 100-ton Master of Sail, has been fishing Maui waters for over 25 years now. He’s landed hundreds of marlin, mahi mahi, ono, and ahi here over the years and truly enjoys sharing his knowledge with clients. This magnificent luxury sport fishing yacht, along with her seasoned and friendly crew, offers a class of fishing a step above the ordinary.
A few extra touches the “Excellence” provides which other Maui fishing charters do not:
- A hosted breakfast of fresh baked pastries and warm breakfast burritos
- A gourmet “boxed lunch” of hand crafted sandwiches on daily homemade baked breads featuring Boar’s Head meats with local produce, freshly made pineapple coleslaw and a brownie. Also includes a selection of juice, soda and water. Guests are welcome to bring beer and wine (no glass containers please).
- Round trip transportation to/from Kihei, Wailea or Makena) can be added for an additional fee of $200.00 per party.
“Hybrid” Fishing & Snorkeling Charters
Combine luxury sport fishing with an upscale Maui snorkeling experience. This unique private sport fishing charter includes an additional 3rd crew member who will provide a “Snorkel Seafari” as well as extra safety in the water.

Discover pristine reef structures with a wide variety of fish, sea turtles and other marine life.

Excellence Charter Reviews
Lots of fun with these guys. Beautiful boat, nice equipment, and we were lucky to have beautiful weather. Would have been nice if it were calmer, and more fish were biting, but that's why it's fishing and not catching.
A big thanks to Chris and Dave for a great day on the water. You were wonderful with our kids and educated the adults on Hawaii while we waited for the bites. Happy Holidays!
What a day! Dave and Chris were terrific hosts. Dave worked his butt off for us and gave our group of four the most pleasurable day ever. Four Mahi Mahi and One Ono!
We were treated well and the ocean was calm!
Thanks to Dave and Chris!!!!!
A Great Day
We took our boys out on the Excellence for a great day. The fishing was really good and the service was great. Lyle the deckhand has coastguard and fishing stories that are entertaining and Capt Dennis know where the fish are. They arranged to have our Ono cooked for dinner locally and it was awesome. If you want Fun, Luxury, and Fish then look no further!!
