Kauai Fishing Fighting Chair

The fighting chair on our boat Play N’ Hooky makes deep sea fishing on Kauai a blast. Strap in and crank in mahi mahi, ahi, ono, shibi tuna, and maybe a marlin.

Whale

A pod of humpback whales off the East side of Kauai. It is amazing to have them breach so close to the boat while fishing. Beautiful. That is Anahola mountain in the background.

Play N' Hooky

The boat’s name is Play-n-Hooky. The boat is a 30-foot Force catamaran. It is a double hull design, built in Hilo, Hawaii for Hawaiian waters. It is more stable than most mono hull designs.

The humpback whales migrate through Kauai every winter. They breed in the warm waters off of the Garden Island, and in December it is not uncommon to see families of whales with young. December-Early March is the best time to whale watch on Kauai. At Kai Nalu with like to deep sea fish and whale watch, all at once!

Great catch. Fishing for tuna, ono (Wahoo), and Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish). These are some of the prized game fish of Kauai.

Aloha, I’m captain John Nakamura, a Kauai local boy living his dream. I was born and raised on Kauai along with the first mate Francis. We love “talking story,” sharing memories of the past on the Garden Island. Come deep sea fishing with Kai Nalu.
