Kona Deep Sea Fishing on the Big Island!!
The Big Island offers some of the Best Deep Sea Fishing in the world! That’s right, in the world! Five monstrous masses of mountain, one of which is the biggest mountain in the world, surround the Kona Coast. The waters are therefore protected from standard aqua turbulence. Only a couple miles out from the shoreline the edge slopes off and it is 6000 feet (1.8 km) deep! Deep Sea Fisherman come from around the world to fish these special waters and catch fish over 1000 pounds (455 kilos)! The blue marlin is a special prize and has yearly tournaments at the Big Island.
The deep sea fishing though isn’t left to the experts. Anyone can charter a deep sea fishing boat and troll the waters around the island. There are numerous captains who will help you fish the ocean for such species as tuna, mahi mahi and more. It’s an adventure you will remember.
