Light Tackle Shared Fishing Charter

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Departing from West Maui’s Mala Wharf boat ramp, the Cooper V does some fantastic bottom fishing trips. Everything is caught on light tackle. We catch some of the best eating fish around. UFO Adventures Fishing trips utilize the fastest fishing vessels in Hawaii.  At 30+ kts Cooper V and Mercury are unmatched in their ability to get to more fishing grounds than any other vessel. The net result is more opportunities to find the bite and put dinner on the table. Depending on the weather, charter time, and guests ability we can utilize various angling techniques for that once-in-a-lifetime Hawaiian fishing experience.

    The captain will clean and fillet your catch if desired. All activities are at the captain’s discretion and are dependent on the current weather conditions.

    Booked a 4 hour inshore fishing excursion and our captain was named "killer"! "Killer" drove around for 3.25 hours and we got to fish for around 45 minutes catching only 3 fish. Not a good experience. Waste of time and money.More

    Aloha Anthony, All of our captains do their best to take you to the best fishing spots based on where we've been catching and where weather is permitting. Sometimes we need to switch spots not only when there are no bites but also to keep...More

    Mahalo for the 5 stars! It is always disappointing when you don't catch much, and though it is rare, it does happen. Sounds like you still had a thrilling experience, though! What an experience of a lifetime! We look forward to seeing you next year!

    No...they have a “ride along” price for those that don’t fish. We did the four hour shared charter and I believe the price for ride along was around $60 a person. They should have it listed somewhere on their website. That’s... More
