If you’re live around or are visiting the South Kihei, Wailea or Makena area, let there be no doubt, the Kihei boat ramp is the most convenient place to launch a private fishing charter. Not only because of its prime location, but also the numerous options on offer. Currently, there’s dozens of small boat operations departing daily from the small harbor just north of Keawakapu Beach and makai (towards the ocean) of myriad Kihei Kamaole communities–Maui Kamaole, Kamaole Sands, Kihei Shores, Haleakala Shores, or Hale Kamaole to name a few.
Out of all the tours, however, there’s one vessel and crew that stands out: Green Island Charters. A day trip out on the waters with both Captain Jesse and Matt is one I’d recommend to all my clients, friends and family! Immediately greeted with abundant aloha aboard, you’re welcomed as a member of their ohana. And this trip only gets better from there. The piercing blue waters are calling, your favorite playlist is jamming, and coolers are stocked with tasty beverages and catered local lunch.
Hopefully the conditions line up just right, and the reels are continuously singing. First catch of the day couldn’t be better. Jesse and Matt are spotted here with a prized Ono (a tropical fish closely related to King Mackerel) in front of famed Pu’u Olai and Makena Beach. These two local fisherman come from a strong stock of fishing backgrounds. Both are born and raised Maui locals. Both have jigged, trolled, and cast line for countless hours. They know our coasts most fertile grounds.
Honestly, even if the day is spent lazily drifting along deep Pacific blues–soaking up endless sunshine, suds and sandwiches–Green Island Charters private expedition around the coast is worthy the admission alone. Depending on season and conditions, whales and dolphins might even hitch a ride… In fact, they specialize in custom tours too. So if fishing isn’t your thing, know that the Green Island Charters team captain one of the best private snorkeling expeditions, whale watches, and sunset cruises on Maui as well.
Cresting mauna (mountains) booming, abundant gorgeous sea life, and arguably the best sunrises/sunsets on Earth. Does it get any better than those cherished moments experienced off the Maui coast? There’s stunning vistas in literally each direction and views only obtainable from the sea. One trip and you’re hooked, I guarantee it. There’s no doubt, it’s always memorable exploring the Pacific Ocean!
