Since 1988 Captain Harry has always delivered the best bang for your buck. He operates a 41-foot Pacifica, comfortable, stable and safe. Departing out of Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor on the East Shore. In the past few years operating costs, especially fuel costs, have risen dramatically and unfortunately continues to increase quite rapidly. Most charter vessels run on diesel fuel, which traditionally has been lower in cost compared to gasoline. However in today's world, diesel has also dramatically increased in price, sometimes surpassing the price of gasoline. Despite these higher costs, Captain Harry has held off on raising his rates. However, they can no longer continue to absorb the higher costs. Mahalo for your kind patronage and understanding of these changes.

Prices:  Sport Fishing
Harry specializes in Private Charters and the current rate is $625.00 for 1-6 anglers. This rate is for a half day charter. Children and spectators who do not plan to fish are welcome aboard at no charge (please give them advance notice on spectator count); however the client must be mindful of the water conditions that we fish in with 2-4 foot seas being normal. Please email Lilikoi if you are interested in a longer charter.  They generally do not book for more than 4 hours, but if a customer wants to stay out longer and feels confident that they can handle the water conditions for the day, there may be an additional fee. There is now 10% assessed to cover Taxes & Fees.
They offer ONLY private exclusive charters which are affordable.

About The Happy Hunter II
The vessel is a 41-foot Pacifica built in 1980. It is powered by twin Detroit 671’s that are turbocharged and supercharged, generating 410 horsepower each. 

A Northern Light genset provides AC power to drive their air conditioning system, microwave, stove and 2 DVD screens on board. This vessel has had only three owners and has never been used for charter work until Harry purchased it in the summer of 2004. At that time it only had 1,800 hours on its engines and was acquired in pristine condition. All systems on board are in operational order. Ask to see their engine compartment. This is the life and soul of any vessel and a spotless environment will give an insight as to how well the vessel is maintained. Engine and systems logbooks are meticulously maintained. Safety is their biggest priority.

A fully enclosed cabin area provides environmentally controlled comfort; shielding you from harsh sunlight or drizzling rain. A fly bridge that can accommodate 4 passengers comfortably is also enclosed for protection.

Two full heads with a hot and cold fresh water shower system, and terrific kitchen setup compliments their cabin area.

Their friendly and knowledgeable captains emphasize the spirit of ALOHA and hospitality that Hawaii is known for.

                  Courtesy of Captain Harry Fish Policy:
The boat reserves the right to the catch.  They are more than happy to share a portion of the catch with the client however they are not able to give them all of the fish.  One of the reasons that they  can offer such a reasonable exclusive rate is that they are able to catch fish and sell it.  You must keep in mind that for this reason, they have a greater incentive to catch fish than a charter boat that is out with 6 or more anglers on board.

Departure Times:
During the summer they like to depart early; usually 6 or 6:30 a.m. as the sun rises early.  They usually depart at 7:00 a.m. in the winter when the days are shorter.  However, as these are all exclusive charters, the departure times can be adjusted to suit your needs but remember that the Captain makes the call on how early the fish are biting.

Molly and I had a wonderful time in Hawaii.  Despite Molly getting seasick, fishing with Captain Harry was the best deep sea fishing I've ever experienced.  I have been out before in Mexico and Florida but had yet to catch a fish.  With Harry, I caught a 20# yellowfin tuna (ahi) and a 60+# shortbill spearfish that will be going on the wall some time next year.  Harry and the first mate were both knowledgeable and helpful and when Molly became sick, they were very sympathetic and kind.  We cut the trip short so she could get back on land but on the way back we caught the spearfish so it worked out well.  Thank you for recommending Capt. Harry! Sincerely, Matt Hewitt
