Novice? Expert? No worries here…our captain and crew enjoy working with anglers of all skill levels. Experience the excitement of deep-sea charter fishing and marvel at the cobalt blue waters of Hawaii’s Big Island.

Looking for a hook, line, and sinker of a deal? Look no further! Unlike many popular big game fishing destinations around the world where you may have up to a 1 1/2-hour boat ride before getting to the fishing grounds, Hawaii's beautiful Kona Coast offers the potential to hook into monster fish within minutes of leaving Honokohau Harbor - the home port of Intrepid Sportfishing. The benefit is that you spend more time fishing and less time riding in the boat before getting to the prime big game fishing grounds.

As a result of the formation of the Hawaiian Islands by volcanic activity, steep drop-offs, and deep marine canyons, the Intrepid can be in over thousands of feet of blue water within a very short distance from the coast. This unique land feature allows you the hunting grounds for the predator fish that big game fishermen prize: blue marlin, striped marlin, spearfish, swordfish, yellowfin tuna, big eye tuna, mahi-mahi (dolphin) and wahoo.

**Record-sized fish have been caught just minutes from our harbor.**

Customer satisfaction is our first priority! Our team is here for you…let us help create a lifetime of memories with a deep-sea fishing trip that you will never forget! 
Customize your trip:

**Half day, three-quarter day, full day, custom and overnight sport fishing charters are available.

**January 2006 - The Hawaiian International Billfish Association recently announced that Captain Dennis Cintas and the crew of the Intrepid have been awarded the prestigious Richard Boone "Gold" Award for last year's Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament. The participating international teams give this award as their choice of the best captain, crew and vessel for that year's tournament. They placed first among 30 other boats that participated. It is truly a great honor as participating captains do their best to achieve this recognition.
