Species targeted are the biggest game fish off the Kona coast of Hawaii, including the granddaddy of all game fish – the Blue Marlin. Also on the list are Mahi Mahi, known for their incredibly fast swimming speeds and huge size. Ono, or wahoo, are among the fastest fish in the world, while the Ahi, or yellowfin tuna, tests an angler’s strength and endurance.

Captains use sophisticated equipment like tuna tubes, outriggers, and downriggers to ensure a successful day on the water.

    So much fun! We will definitely be booking again when we come back! Robert was super nice, easy to talk to and fun. The crew was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We caught 14 yellow fin tuna, saw a shark, whales, flying fish, and ALMOST snagged a Marlin 🎣

    So as far as an unofficial state record goes, which isn’t far, Camelot has done it again. This boat has delivered over 10 years worth of annual trips for myself and family. Through this outstanding team we have landed almost all the sport fish Kona offers and have done it in a respectful and honest way. This year the team put us on a common fish in Kona, the Short Bill Spearfish, but nothing was common about it. At an average catch weight of 25-30lb’s it’s a fun but easy fish to hook up on. At 98.99 lb (sorry for camera angle on the scale) it’s a whole other story and as it is very unofficial would qualify as a state record if we had it officially weighed which was not available at the time. Thanks Camelot for another lifetime achievement and experience.

    From booking with captain Rob, to clear directions on when/where to be there, to an awesome crew (James and Lincoln) who made it an extra enjoyable experience. The list goes on and on.They took us to a spot that only a few people know about and we caught a 4 Bonitas and 2 yellowtails! I’ve heard that some boats don’t let you keep fish and these guys were great. We wouldn’t have been able to use all of our fish and we split the fish.When we come back to the big island Camelot is our boat! If you’re looking for the best deep sea experience, book with these guys. Highly recommend!

    Great Bluewater fishing adventure, and having a captain and crew with years of experience made all the difference on this trip. We had multiple hookups and were blessed enough to land 2 Big Blue Marlin... truly a fishing story to pass on foe generations to come. If you go,have patience and stay out as long as you can. Only time on the water leads to success.
