Sea Wife II, Kona, Hawaii
Our boat is licensed for 18 people, making it the only sport fishing boat in Kona that can carry more than six passengers. The deck and fly bridge are spacious, as the Sea Wife II is a 38′ Delta. Built originally as a dive boat, but modified for fishing, which means lots of room and plenty of shade. It is a very comfortable boat and we keep it clean. Sea Wife Charters has been in operation since 1982. The present boat was built in 1990. It has twin engines, an enclosed restroom, sonar (fish finder), GPS, auto pilot, cellular phone, radio, the finest tackle and your captain and crew. Our captains hold United States Coast Guard Masters Licenses and the vessel holds a USCG Certificate of Inspection. You are in safe, professional hands when going for a fishing trip with Sea Wife Charters, aboard the Sea Wife II.
Sea Wife Charters Won the 2010 ‘Best of West Hawaii’ award for Best Fishing Charter
Sea Wife Charters also won the 2009 award for ‘Best Fishing Charter’
The Sea Wife Charters Crew
Captain – Kent Mongreig
Trading the chilly seaways of Seward Alaska for the warmer waters of the Kona coast, Captain Kent’s goal is to have you experience the thrill of a lifetime and make your ‘fish wish’ come true.
First Mate – ‘Mako’
Licensed to Bark, well not really more like a ride along with Captain Kent. Also a hit with the people, but don’t let the fluffy exterior fool you, this 4 legged sea dog can fish with the best of them. With a resume covering several years of sea legs.
First Mate – Corey Lum Won
Being born in Kona and practically raised on the ocean has made Corey an expert in light and heavy tackle fishing styles. He is a master with the filet knife and will make sure your catch is ready for the grill.
Deck Hand – Eric Miranda
Another local boy with his eyes constantly on the lures and hoping the phrase each day will be, “Gone Catching” and not “Gone Fishing”. What does Eric do in his spare time? Fish of course, on his own private boat just for the fun of it.
Sea Wife Manager – Amber
Amber answers the phones, replies to your emails, makes your reservations, checks you in and updates our Facebook page.
“I’ve been fishing on the Sea Wife for the last 15 years and each time the
crew has always gone the extra mile. I’ve caught Striped and Blue marlin, Mahi Mahi, Ahi, Spearfish and today my first Ono. It’s going to taste good tonight!” -
Bob Strickland, Fresno, CA

Kip Petross and Suzanne Zimmerman, Dallas, TX
“My husband and I live here, and had friends visiting from New Zealand so we decided to book a morning trip with the Sea Wife II. The crew was very knowledgeable about fishing these waters, and the history and culture of the islands - true aloha spirit is found here. The best thing about our morning was we caught a few small tunas, and got to keep our catch!” -
Jessica Williamsom, Kona, HI
“Of all the crews of the fishing charters I’ve interacted with in Honokohau Harbor, these guys are by far the best crew I’ve seen. Very much on top of their game… always ready to go when their charters arrive to check in.” - Scott Schroder, Spokane, WA
“I’ve fished a lot, and have never been treated to a more fun and energetic crew than Captain Chris and his mate Travis. The fishing was superb, the water conditions were perfect, and to my ultimate surprise, I was able to keep the fish I caught …I am one happy fisherman today thanks to this family like crew….”-
