We started this business from the sheer joy of sharing our love of the ocean. We make several trips a week, and overnight charters are truly special experiences that one remembers for a lifetime. Lincoln is one of the very few licensed captains who is a native Hawaiian so his experience makes Ka Pe’a the best charter on the big island

We keep our customers on fish

By combining local knowledge with dedication and the best gear in the business.

Your captain

Lincoln Ahlo

Lincoln is well known in Hawaiian waters, most notably for all the ‘granders’ he’s help to land. Capt. Judd from the JUN KEN PO asked for Lincoln’s help; “He’s extremely strong, but he also does things with a lot of finesse. He really thinks ahead about what he is going to do and plans his moves carefully.  Ha, I think he was either an ahi or really big marlin in another life”, Judd has quipped.  Like Ernest Hemingway and his epic story of ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, in 1983 Lincoln and two other anglers established the longest battle at the time with a billfish of over 34 ½ hours

Lincoln also helped establish incredible records during his stint in Midway’s 20 mile lagoon, landing a black marlin in 1999 that was reportedly the largest grander of that species caught anywhere in Hawaii.

Now you can join Captain Lincoln Ahlo and hook up with a charter on our spunky 40 feet Radon style boat named Ka Pe’ a, which means ‘Southern Cross’ in Hawaiian.

Policies & F.A.Q.

What to Bring?

Polarized sunglasses, a hat, sun screen, foul weather gear if needed, jacket or sweater (it’s cold in the AM), a camera, and personal snacks.  Captain Ahlo offer’s full complimentary dinners and lunches if you book the Sea Mountain charter.

Fishing Methods

On Ka Pe’a, we utilize world-class fishing methods well established for Hawaiian waters. One example is our green stick. The green stick is utilized to literally ‘bounce’ small squid bait on the water during trolling. This aggravates and attracts the ahi, making it almost irresistible to larger fish.
