Best Boat Charter on the Big Island

Aloha Dear Friends,

My ultimate favorite thing to do on this beautiful island is to go out on Captain Chad’s boat and enjoy a day on the ocean. I have been soaking up the bliss that Captain Chad offers for many years now and, in my opinion, is the best boat charter on the island. It’s the extra care and attention to detail that I enjoy from his tours. Check out his website, a Veteran owned business.captain chad's charters hawaii

The friendly staff that makes you feel comfortable and has a plethora of knowledge of the marine world is definitely a bonus.

Chad is the captain and his passion for the ocean speaks loudly of his actions and the way he conducts his charters, respecting the water world.

Our Adventure on a Private Big Island Boat Charter

I recently went out on Captain Chad’s “Sea Esta” boat with some friends that for visiting from out of town and wow we are still smiling.

Leaving out of Kawaihae Harbor, which is located in a very central area along the Kohala Coast and just around the corner from my favorite Hawaiian poke shack.

We were greeted with smiles and within minutes of arriving, we were departing the dock, with the perfect music serenading us and the vast deep blue ocean inviting our essence.

We found the perfect snorkeling spot and after a few minutes of being in the water observing the different colored fish and coral. There were so many different colored fish and turtles and we even saw an octopus from afar.

Suddenly a friendly pod of dolphins started playing with us. This was truly exhilarating, especially for my dear friend Ivana who has never seen dolphins in the wild and only her second time snorkeling ever.

When we came out of the water after a life-enhancing snorkeling experience we were served cold locally grown white pineapple, snacks, and cool drinks.

Chad recently bought a new luxury boat “Nilolo Nui” a stunning 32 ft Edgewater center consul with shade and comply seating. He will take you out onto the ocean, catch a fish or two, hopefully it’s Ono my favorite on the island, and grill you a fresh catch right on the boat, with a splash of fresh lemon, Wow, this is the life.

Chad offers an array of services, from manta ray night snorkeling, seasonal whale watching, deep-sea fishing, custom private sunset charters, and wildlife encounters. I highly recommend booking Captain Chad to take you an adventure of your life.

Aloha Satori! I live in San Diego area with my wife, Cindy. As an investment option, I am looking into perhaps a vacation property on Maui if the numbers pencil out. Question: can a vacation property w a 25% down payment produce positive cash flow? (looked at the numbers for 1b/1b ocean view condo around Kaanapali and it didn’t pencil out…expenses vs revenues showed a negative cash flow). Mahalo!
