If you are a sportsman or woman who wants to spend their time relaxing with a fishing pole, a nice sunset, and open water, you likely have a long list of places you want to visit. Top of that list should be Kauai, a hidden gem of the deep-sea fishing community and a great place to kick back with your family as well. Keep reading to find out why you should consider this gem of the ocean above all others.
If you want to kick back and fish, you usually don’t want to be around everyone else. Many places that offer deep sea fishing tend to cluster everyone who goes out together in the same small area. This might make it easier for areas without a large variety of fishing spots to make a buck, but it’s frustrating when you have to listen to music from another boats radio and compete for a catch with someone you have never met.
The waters around the islands in Hawaii are expansive and filled with many good spots for anyone who wants to fish, swim, or do anything else in the ocean. Each tour company or boat operator also tends to have their own space when they take groups out, meaning you will be the only one for miles around. For privacy and time alone with nature, Kauai can’t be beat.
2. Food and Fun
When you get back from fishing you must eat, and you generally will want to do something other than fish. Hawaii has many cuisine types within a small geographic area and offers evening and morning traditional shows and activities, perfect for kicking back and relaxing after a big catch.
3. Variety of Fish
Kauai is also centrally located to reefs and ocean currents, making it a hotbed for migrating species and larger specimens. The variety of fish is too large to list, but pretty much anything you can catch in the Pacific Ocean you can catch near Kauai. One of the main attractions is the thrill of blue marlin sportfishing in waters of Hawaii. The waters are well protected and not overfished as well, meaning that large fish catches and surprising species are more common than you would think. Adding deep sea fishing on your visit to Kauai is a great choice for the fisherman looking for a thrill of a lifetime!
4. Year-Round Fun
While you can technically fish anywhere during the winter months, the waters around Kauai tend to be rather sedate throughout the year. There aren’t many swells and the water are rarely choppy. This means you can safely have fun fishing here all year. Another bonus is the temperate climate that allows you to enjoy less restrictive clothing and summer like feelings whenever you come, making it feel like an actual vacation!
Overall if you like to fish there isn’t anything to dislike about Kauai, there is however a lot to like. Coming to a beautiful part of the world that has an ample stock of fish, good boat operators, and amazing food is the best vacation you can plan. No matter what kind of vacation you want, the islands are calling your name.
