About Fishing with Island Charters of Hawaii

Our Boat: The Mazel Tov

Our primary boat is the tried-and-true 46 foot 1980 Hatteras Convertible, the 'Mazel Tov' - a phrase meaning 'good luck / fortune has happened' and that's what we hope every angler will discover on our fishing charters - a great experience with friends and family and a bounty of fish to return to shore with! The Mazel Tov offers comfortable seating, air conditioning, toilet, and the latest safety features perfect for a full day fishing charter.

Our Fishing Charter Options

We offer full day (8hr), 3/4 day (6hr), and half day fishing charters (4hr) for either Private Fishing Charters or Shared Fishing Charters.

Check in time for full day charters is 6:30 am, with our half day and 3/4 day fishing charters getting underway at 12:30pm.

Bookings may be cancelled at any time up to 48 hours before your scheduled Fishing Charter.
