April 12, 2019 Update: We are back in our slip in the Front Row! Slip F2
The Wild Bunch departs from its slip (F2) on Pier F (Front Row) in Kewalo Basin Harbor at 6:00 a.m. Our boat slip is the second to the last slip on the Diamond Head (east) side, next to the giant Parasail sign. Kewalo Basin Harbor is just a short taxi/Uber/Lyft ride from Waikiki. We are easily found using Google Maps; just type in "Wild Bunch Sport Fishing."
Bring your own food and drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic). Please, no glass containers or bananas. There is a microwave in our clean, comfortable and air-conditioned cabin, and we will keep your food cold in the giant Yeti cooler. Children and families are welcome!
All fishing gear, tackle and bait are included, and you do not need a fishing license.
Parking: Park in the lot on the Diamond Head (east) side. The cost is $1/hour, payable by cash or credit card. Use the Parking machines to get a receipt, and place the receipt on your dash. You can also pay for parking on-line (instructions are located at the pay machines app.calltopark.com Location: Kewalo Basin #139873).
Like all charter boats in Kewalo Basin Harbor, the crew and boat keep all fish 100 lbs. and over, and will gladly filet and split 50-50 any fish up to 100 lbs. Our goal is to catch as many fish as possible, and send our customers home with a bag of fish, but we cannot guarantee that you will catch a fish. Large fish must remain intact in order to be sold at the local fish auction, which provides fish to island restaurants and stores (second busiest fish auction in the world!).
Hawaii state law prohibits the crew from selling any cut fish and prohibits restaurants from cooking any fish brought in by customers. Oahu does not have any canning factories. Some customers have purchased dry ice in order to transport their fish to the Mainland, and we can advise you in that area.
We understand that you may be unfamiliar with this type of fish policy, and we are happy to answer any questions for clarification or curiosity.
