Piper Charters, a gorgeous 47′ Cabo, is owned and operated by captain Jeff Kahl. She is one of only 3 sport fishing companies running fishing charters out of South Maui’s Maalaea harbor.
Fully loaded and tournament ready, The Piper features a tuna tower, huge cockpit with live bait well, 8 tuna tubes (hidden in covering boards), 2 large fish boxes in deck with 600 pound/day ice chipper to fill them.
Captain Jeff Kahl is one of Maui’s most experienced sport fishing captains. He’s logged thousands of hours fishing for marlin, mahi mahi, ahi and ono. He holds the record for the largest blue marlin caught on a chartered sport fishing trip, the cast of which is on display over his slip at Maalaea harbor. Jeff has fished all over the world, and continues to participate in sport fishing tournaments at various hotspots like Kona, Australia, and Mexico.
While the charter boats here really target any particular species, some captains have their preferences. Capt. Jeff and his crew prefer billfish. So if you’re after Pacific blue marlin, stripers or even sailfish (uncommon in Hawaii), and hope to fish in style, look to Piper first. Piper Charters’ availability is limited. Call FishMaui for availability. 808-344-3520.
7-day cancellation policy. Rates do not include 4.16% state GET, 3% harbor fee, or gratuity.

Piper Charters Reviews
5 star deal all the way!
Just a quick note that we had a great time with Jeff & Mike on Piper last Monday...
Despite nasty morning weather, Jeff found clear skies, stayed close to harbor and we brought in a couple nice mahi – we gave one to Jeff and Mike filleted the other and the chef at Ritz made a couple dozen fish tacos for us when we got back –
Piper is a great boat, they made us feel at home and took all precautions for a safe, enjoyable trip.
Due to inclement weather at noon-time, Jeff suggested heading back in and adjusted the price accordingly.
Three of the guys have never set foot on a deep sea boat, so it was a great experience for them.
All the Best and Mahalo!
Piper, Capt. Jeff, and Sean were awesome. Incredible boat, excellent way to spend the day, and the tastiest fish tacos EVER (quoted directly from the kids). Thank you for a wonderful experience!
