About Us

 

 

Island Charters was formed in 2009 by Tony Mathis after retiring from the United States Marine Corps.  Tony wanted a venue that would share his passion of big game sport fishing with all people, experienced or beginner.

 

Island Charters Sport Fishing has become most successful due to an excellent reputation of outstanding customer service.  With Captain Tony, your day on the water will prove to be an enjoyable and most memorable experience during your stay in Honolulu.

 

The Boat…”Mazel Tov” is a 46’ Hatteras Sportfisher that is spacious and comfortable.  Mazel Tov is a two stateroom two bath air-conditioned vessel that boasts a 46’ flat screen television with a High Definition Digital Antenna that can catch the big game up to 65 miles out on the ocean.

 

The bridge alone has more than enough room to comfortably seat the entire charter.  Both the Mazel Tov and Island Charters Sport Fishing are located in Honolulu at Kewalo Basin Harbor just minutes from Waikiki.

 

The Equipment… Island Charters uses only Penn and Shimano big game reels which are provided.  We will supply everything for your day on the water except food and drink. Call or email if you request catering for your charter. We also provide the ice and coolers for food and drink.  There is no requirement for fishing licenses.

 

The Fish…Island Charters Sport Fishing trolls for Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo.  These game fish are caught year around in Hawaii.  We will gladly share and cut fish weighing less than 100 pounds for our clients at the end of the day.  No worries if you have no place to cook, there are establishments in Honolulu that will cook your catch for a small fee.

 

Charters…The Mazel Tov can be booked exclusively for full, ¾, and ½ day charters for parties up to six persons.  We also offer full and ½ day “shared” charters.  Shared charters are for people who don’t mind fishing with others.  Shared charters are most economical for single persons or couples since you are “sharing” the boat with up to five others persons.

 

Booking…a simple process that can be done here at our website, by telephone (808) 457-7086, or in person at our booth located at Kewalo Basin Harbor, 1025 Ala Moana Blvd, Slip F-D.
