You also can tour the Island. Kahoolawi and Molokini are two Island that you must have permission to go on land. Your'e allowed to fish around the Island but there a distance that you stay away from. The regulation for both Island can be found in the Hawaii fishing regulation that you can get from any fishing supply store fore free. In order to do all of  activities it is best to have your own boat, but you can rent one.

Buying  a new or used boat depends on your finanicial situation. What lenth of boat should you get, what size of engine should you have. A boat between 16' to 24' in lenth is go to have, 16' boat good for two crewmen with twin 50 hp outboard motor, 18' boat with 75 hp outboard motor good for threemen crew 24' in length good for four or more crewmen with twin 100hp outboard motor ideal boat to have. all of these boat should  have a fiberglass hardtop to keep you dry on a windy day  or rough choppy sea, also if you do night fishing you will have some place warm to sleep. All of these boats can be kept on a trailer. It will make much easier store in yard or garage and to bring the boat to the different boat ramp to launch.

Buying a new boat is the ideal way to go, you can get exactly what you on the boat with factory installation  and warrenty.The reason for having twin engine is speed and safety if one engine fails you have one to get back to the habor. Buying a used boat  is ok but you might not be able to find exactly  what you want it may be a cheaper way to go. Maui Fisherman
