Camelot Sportfishing on the Big Island of Hawaii
Some of the best big game sport fishing and deep sea fishing in the world is offered on the Kona coast. You will find many big game species like the Pacific Blue Marlin, Ono (Wahoo), Mahi Mahi (Dorado Dolphin), Spearfish, Ahi (Yellow fin Tuna), Striped Marlin and many others. The captain and crew of the Camelot Fishing Charter have caught more big game trophy fish than any others in the Kailua Kona based Honokohau Harbor. The experienced and professional crew of the Camelot is well known as being successful for their ability to attract and catch the big fish. You will be provided with all the fishing gear needed by the crew. Brace yourself for the time of your life.
Captains Robert and Cyndee Hudson are winners of countless sport fishing tournaments and are well known for the fishing capabilities. Their charter fishing boat was the first in Kona to bring in a real grander, a bill fish weighing 1,041 lbs. in 2003. With these two captains, you will return from your vacations with more than just fishing stories. Take your fishing trophy home with you. Make your friends and family jealous.
On your 8 hour “Exclusive Charter”, you will find it to be the best way to maximize your fishing potential and more time and opportunity to catch the big one. If you’d prefer, you can spend half the day snorkeling at Captain Cook Kealakekua Bay, also known as “the best snorkeling in the state”, on this 8 hour exclusive charter.
December – April is during whale season and you will have a great opportunity to sight a whale, and on this exclusive charter, it is possible to take in some whale watching.
Families with kids of any age are welcome!
We also offer “share boats” for those of you who want to save money on their fishing trip or for those who have never fished before. “Share boats” means you will share a boat with up to 5 other people for 5 hours instead of getting the boat to yourself. We will fillet and share out the fish caught with everyone at the end of the fishing trip. No one will leave empty-handed. This is a great opportunity to make new friends as well as saving a little money.
