Guide

Trip Info

Enjoy wading in Hawaii’s shallow waters in a quiet, mystic experience with our guides. Bonefish, also known as Oio, thrive in the sandy, shallow waters around the island. You can often see their tails waving in the air on low tides as they feed on mantis shrimp, crabs, sand turtles, and squid. Our guides will help you “match the hatch” (use a fly that closely resembles the fish’s natural prey) to land your first Hawaiian Bonefish while fly fishing. Whether a beginner or an experienced angler, let’s give you the opportunity to catch these illusive fish! The flat’s depth ranges from 0-4 feet and is easily accessible by foot. You can expect to do a lot a walking over uneven grounds but in the end, if we are lucky, you’ll be able to brag to all your friends about the giant Hawaiian bonefish you just caught. We also recommend keeping groups to a maximum of 3 individuals. However, we will make exceptions for bigger groups. Keep in mind that the bigger groups tend to get less individual attention.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: Makani is the owner of Keawe Adventures. I wanted a friendly, knowledgeable and reliable guide for the one day I’d have available for first-time fly fishing for bonefish. Makani answered the call. I told him I was no expert, and he patiently gave me some valuable pointers, never making me feel like a fool for being there, and then we got out there and fished, and fished, and fished. He’s an officer and a gentleman (USMC), a professional all the way, but not stuffy. He knows where to fish, how to fish, and he knows the local history and geography. If you want a no-hassle, relaxed but purposeful fly fishing trip, call Makani. I had a great time and highly recommend Keawe Adventures. It was a good day and I’d do it again (although he probably taught me enough to go solo next time).

    As seen on TripAdvisor: Booked a half day flyfishing tour for my son and myself. Was promptly picked up by Makani Christenson at the designated time. Makani is very personable and talked about various historical points of interest along the drive. This led to very interesting discussion about the history of Hawaii, so much so that I later went out and bought a book to read more. At a beach park, Makani introduced us to flyfishing and discussed the equipment and had us practice casting on land. We then waded along a shallow, reef practicing what we learned. Makani spotted many Hawaiian bonefish, but my untrained eye was unable to spot them. Unfortunately, we did not catch any, but I guess that is why it is called “fishing!” We finished with a picnic lunch at the beach park. Makani had taken several pictures along the way and emailed them to me. Overall, a fun, leisurely introduction to flyfishing which we will definitely do again.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: My wife and I spent three days w/ Keawe Adventures and Makani. We both took SUP lessons, went fly fishing and had an amazing snorkling trip to Hanauma Bay. Each of the experiences were exceptional. While we did not catch any bonefish I did pick up some fishing tips and got some quality casting lessons. Since our trip to Hawaii we have bought our own SUP baords and use the lessons taught to us by Makani. The sun rise trip to Hanauma Bay was awesome. We talk about it and show off our photos still. Makani and Keawe Adventures was outsdtanding!

    As seen on TripAdvisor: I had a great time light tackle fishing with Makani. He was very accommodating and able to get a few hours of fishing on short notice. We fished along the beach in Zone 1 just east of Diamond Head Crater and caught a few small ones. His love, knowledge & enjoyment of fishing made for a great fishing outing. I look forward to fishing with him again in the future.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: I my father and I signed a guide, Makani, for the day. I expected the usual touristy fishing gimmick. Boy was I wrong. After a beautiful hike through the countryside, I learned how to spear fish as well as how to fly fish. I highly recommend both the guide and the experience.
