FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

  What is your catch policy?

In most instances, the Fishing on Maui sport fishing boats will fillet your catch and provide you with enough fish to enjoy while visiting here in Hawaii.  If you are considering packing your catch and shipping it home, you are on your own.  There are no processing or shipping services on Hawaii that can ship your fish home.

Tag and release billfish is per request.  If that is your intention, please let the captain know so you understand the policy.

Yes.  The boats have clean and comfortable restrooms.

No_bananas

What not to bring on the Boat – BANANAS!!

 Superstition has it – any kind of bananas, i.e., banana muffins, banana cake, banana pudding, or even banana boat suntan lotion – NOTHING BANANA is allowed on the boat because it brings bad luck!!!  Days of old tells a tale that boats carrying banana cargo ran aground, became lost at sea and/or lost crew members due to sickness and disease.
