You may charter the Sea Strike for a day of fishing without a reservation. However, reservations will ensure that you get to go the day that best suits your schedule. Reservations may also lock in a lower charter rate. And, if you have designs on entering a Kona fishing tournament, your reservation allows the captain to prepare.

For information on big game sportfishing in Kona, Hawaii, call or text Captain Dale Leverone at 808-895-1972. You may also send an e-mail to Captain Dale Leverone. Your email should include  your name, phone number, date you would like to fish and whether you would  like a full (8 hours) 3/4 (6 hours), or half day (4 hours) charter.

If you're considering fishing in Kona in the summer months, book early. The summer months are our busiest since most of our annual marlin tournaments are scheduled between late June and mid August.

While several Kona fishing tournaments are geared for experienced fishermen who can angle the fish under IGFA rules, there are also Jungle Rules tournaments geared toward the not-so-experienced angler. Either way, tournaments are fun, with a chance to win a few bucks. If you're considering  entering a tournament during your stay here in Kona, check out our list of Kona Fishing Tournaments. Please note that while I try to keep this list as complete and accurate as possible, I may have missed one, and/or the Kona tournament schedule and entry fees may have been adjusted without my knowledge.

My best advise is to consult with Captain Dale Leverone. Let him know when you are coming what you might hope to catch, and whether or not you are interested in competing in a tournament, and he will be able to advise you accordingly. The Captain can answer  any questions you may have, provide you with the entry form(s) for the tournament of your choice and assist in getting your team entered for the event.
