    What to Expect
    You don't have to be a top-of-the-line angler to enjoy this 4-hour fishing and boating excursion off the coast of Kona. Depart from Honokohau Harbor and then learn fishing and angling techniques from the captain and crew, as you sit back and enjoy the experience on this private, chartered tour. Famed for its giant blue marlin, the Kona Coast also boasts striped marlin, ono, bigeye tuna and spearfish, among other varieties. Enjoy the complimentary fishing equipment and drink in the view while waiting for a big one to latch on to your line.

    Capt Curtis was really friendly and pleasant, as was his deckhand, so sorry I can’t remember his name. They got stuck with a girl group, who’ve never caught more then small river/lake fish. My 15 year old daughter begged to go fishing so she got the chair. Within the first hour

    An amazing adventure! Captain Curtis, Judah & Victor each played a key role in one of the best days on the water. Captain Curtis was pro at everything from the command of his boat and crew to putting us in just the right spot to catch more than our share of fish. If that

    Half-day charter was perfect - we had a few bites and landed a spearfish. Capt. Chad was great - thanks for filleting the spearfish and taking some great pics!

    Captain Chad and his right hand man Sandy were fantastic! Our family group of five left early in the morning to hit the water before it got too warm, letting us focus on the fishing techniques Sandy taught us. Their boat was clean and roomy with an ice chest to keep our lunch

    Aloha, Thank you for the review. Captain Andy and Brian are a great team on Bite Me 3. We are happy you enjoyed your time with them. Yes you are correct... some folks think it's a catching charter and that's when they get angry and disappointed. We spend a lot of time clarifying the definition between fishing and catching. We offer fishing charter's. Do we want to catch? Absolutely..... Do we catch every time... No. Its fishing. A bad day of fishing is still a good day! The view is to die for and the boat ride is nice! To top it off you get to meet some very good people. We hope your vacation to the Big Island was a good one. If you ever venture back, come see us! Mahalo, Bite Me Sportfishing & Ocean Encounters Charter Team.
