Share charters in Kailua-Kona, HI may include some interruptions between fishing attempts. You may be sharing a rod. If we are trolling, you leave the rod in the holder and wait for your catch. We also may limit rods to ensure a good catch, until it’s your turn to make an attempt. Fortunately, share charters offer other treats for you to enjoy when you are taking a break from fishing. Here are some non-fishing activities to help occupy your time.
Enjoying the boat
The deck and fly bridge are spacious open areas where you can just take in the sea air. Use the time to simply rest and observe the natural beauty around you. In our hurried world, having time set aside to just do nothing is a rare luxury. Waiting or taking a break just is not that bad when you have the scenery Hawaii offers!
Boat decks are shaded so you can enjoy all this without worrying about sunburn. Each boat also has a bathroom and clean accommodations, so you are not exactly worrying about primitive conditions here!
People save money for trips to Hawaii for years and this break time is your chance to commit it to the memory books. With vast sea, good views and beautiful shorelines, get ready for photographic opportunities unlikely to be repeated anywhere else. This may be a good time to practice the panorama feature on your digital camera. There is some great landscape that just screams for that chance!
Besides fish, there is wild life. You will see many species of birds and marine mammals like the Hawaiian monk seal. The most impressive among these water creatures is the whales. Hawaii hosts almost one dozen whale species depending on the season, which gives you the chance to see them in their natural habitat.
Most people hope for a glimpse at the elusive humpback whale. This species is drawn to the warm shallow waters and stays in the area from December through to May. Marine biologists estimated that two-thirds of the North Pacific population settles off the Hawaiian coasts. Some of them may have their newborn babies with them too, which can give you a special surprise.
Besides humpbacks you may see bottlenose dolphins, false killer whales, melon head whales, short finned pilot whales, orca and sperm whales. Many of these species are quite shy, so if you are on a share charter at the right time of year, you need to keep your eyes peeled.
Watch other guests fish
This may sound like watching paint dry, however if you are on the boat with someone who has more experience or they seem to get a catch every few minutes, make a mental note. Learning from them may just improve your luck too.
