  • Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor - Departing from Nāwiliwili harbor we will start fishing immediately. Just 10 minutes out of the harbor we can start fishing our first drop off of the island. Your captain and crew will fill you in on the methods of fishing being used, brief you on the tackle and how to safely use them, and explain some of the environmental signs that we look for that can lead us to good fishing. Whether it be looking for seabirds feeding, finding debris floating on the water, or just plain getting lucky, we invite all our guests to participate in the “hunting” as well as the “fishing”.

    When fishing with Imua Fishing Charters Kaua’i, we will use different methods of fishing based on the seasons, weather patterns, and tidal movements. Our captain and crew definitely want to catch fish just as much, or maybe a little more than you do. Some of the methods of fishing we use are trolling, live bait, chunk bait, bottom fishing and deep jigging. We will always pick the method of fishing that is most productive for your trip.
What's Included
  • Enjoy a portion of the catch during your stay
  • Fishing tackle provided

Best time!! - My family, my boyfriend, and I went on this trip and it was AMAZING!! Our tour guides were Dylan and Wendell and they were great company! We got on the boat and they explained the trip while Dylan rigged up the poles for everyone! Once we got going it only took about 20 minutes before we got a bite! Overall it was an excellent experience and we made friends along the way! Would absolutely recommend this to people of all ages! They also allow you to take home any fish you caught, and enough for about 2-3 nights for your party!

Great trip!!! - IMUA wad absolutely the best. They went above and beyond to make our trip the best. We have went deep sea fishing in several places we have vacationed, but this was far the best. The crew were so nice and took great care of us. We will come back and do this again.

Amazing Day Reeling! - My husband & teen son fished with Capt. Ikena & First Mate Dillon (sp?) and hit the mahi (dorado) hard all morning. It was a fantastic experience. We are both freshwater big lake salmon/trout fishers (deep) and have been on many charters as well. They made the experience fun, worked it hard and we laughed and learned a lot. Great charter, would highly recommend.

Ikena and Dylan were excellent fishing guides. The boat was in immaculate condition. My girls and I felt right at home! - Though the fishing was slow we still caught 7 total fish. We continued to hunt for opportunities until the very last minute. Ikena and Dylan definitely want to catch fish.

Imua, meaning to go forward with strength, courage and strong spirit... - The Imua, Ikena, and Chas are names that will forever be burned into my memory. Great fishing, knowledgeable, friendly, determined captain, hardworking and passionate crew. We caught Wahoo (unfortunately didn't boat), a couple of nice Mahi Mahi, some Skip Jack tuna (made great Poke) and lastly a Barracuda (unfortunately did boat ;-) ). Learned a lot through stories and conversation with both Chas and Ikena. This is my third and most successful deep-sea fishing charter in recent years. I would definitely recommend. Thanks, Ikena! You are a first-class individual hope to see you again, soon. Chas thanks for looking out for Elina! Much appreciation. Best of luck to you both!

The ocean was pretty... - The ocean was pretty rough, three of the 5 of us got sea sick. We did catch 2 yellow fin tuna. Had a wonderful dinner with our catch. The crew were as good as could be given the conditions.

Really rough waters! - I hate to write a bad review because the people were great and easy to work with. Honestly though, we had a crappy experience - the water was so rough that all of us were seasick, and we are avid boaters, not prone to seasickness. We did multiple other water excursions in HI with no issue. We didn’t catch anything and asked to turn around about 1.5 hrs in cause we were all sick. He did warn us that it was rough, but my opinion is that it should have been canceled with as bad as it was. We spent a ton of money and really disappointed with how it turned out.
