Fair Wind Big Island Ocean Guides on Hawaii has added two fishing vessels to its fleet – the Hokulia and Capt. Jack – to join the Fair Wind II and Hula Kai at Keauhou Bay.

The 43-foot Capt. Jack is a Powerboat Flybridge sport fishing boat with an established reputation on the Kona Coast for its size and comfort, said Fair Wind spokeswoman Vicky Kometani.

The Capt. Jack was built by Keauhou Yacht Club co-founder Capt. Jack Ross and formerly owned by Hokulia Development, Kometani said.

The 41-foot Hokulia is a Bertram sport fishing boat also formerly owned by Hokulia Development and will be renamed, Kometani said.

Both vessels can accommodate up to six passengers.


“Adding these two beautiful boats to Fair Wind’s ocean-going options will provide visitors and kamaaina even more reason to spend time on the water with us,” said company vice president Mendy Dant.


“We are now able to offer everything from snorkeling and diving to deep sea fishing charters and more, all from the convenience of Keauhou Bay.”

The Capt. Jack will begin service with Fair Wind on Oct. 1, when it exits dry dock following interior upgrades.
