Our Boat and Crew
Step On board the Lahela Sportfishing boat for your Kauai fishing charter
The LAHELA is a 34′ Radon sport fisher designed specifically for Hawaiian waters. Powered by a 400 H.P. turbo-charged Cummins diesel engine, with a cruising speed of 18 knots, it provides a very comfortable dry ride while you’re cruising the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.
LAHELA is the only sportfishing vessel certified by the United States Coast Guard to take more than 6 passengers on Kauai. If you’re on Kauai with a group, you can safely bring up to 10 passengers on fishing charters and up to 14 passengers on whale watching charters. The U.S. Coast Guard inspects and re-certifies our vessel every year. Your safety is ensured as Lahela is guaranteed to be in full compliance with all safety and life saving requirements.
Coast Guard Certified
This means that the LAHELA is thoroughly inspected annually to ensure that all its safety gear is current, all wiring is in place, all switches are operable, and there are no fire hazards. In short, the Coast Guard double checks that everything is in perfect working order to ensure your safety. They also require the crew members to execute “man overboard” and fire drills. And finally, every other year the boat is hauled out of the water for complete inspection inside and out.
For your convenience and enjoyment, LAHELA’s comprehensive electronic equipment includes:
- A Furuno color fish finder
- Simrad GPS/Plotter/Sounder
- Garmin Autopilot
- VHF/Cellular phone
- Stereo system
The boat’s salon comes complete with:
- Full stand-up head (restroom)
- Running water
- Interior seating for passengers
- Two V-berths allow for short naps when you’ve been working too hard on deck
