Reel in a Big Blue Marlin off Kauai, Hawaii

Book Now
Within 15 minutes of leaving Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor, Lahela Sport Fishing has you in ocean waters deep enough for big game fishing. The 500 to 1000-fathom drop is where you’ll find Kauai’s big blue marlin and yellow fin tuna (ahi) – weighing in at more than 100 pounds.

You won’t find fishing like this on the east coast. There it can take you 3-4 hours just to reach the right depth to find your catch! Aboard the Lahela, you’ll troll the Pacific Ocean using live bait or artificial lures (the captain guides you in deciding what’s best) in an attempt to raise a trophy sized marlin.

Kauai provides some of the best deep sea, big game fishing anywhere. Marlin fishing can be done year round, whether you’re an experienced angler or a novice. It’s an experience the whole family will love.
