About Us

Our founder, Ray Collier, started working on family boats in the Gulf of Mexico (Pensacola) at a very young age. He did sportfishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, shrimping, and various other water activities.

At age 18, Ray was already a boat owner and operator. It was also when he was 18 that he decided to join the United States Marine Corps, where he served for 11 faithful years.

Ray has spent more than 25 years on boats and has worked in Hawaii for more than 10 years, often with big-name companies in the industry. He became a licensed boat captain in 2008. After spending so many years working for others, Ray decided to start his own small business.

Today, Ruckus Sportfishing and Diving continues to thrive. Ray credits the knowledge he gleaned from his years working for others for our company’s success. He continues to stay true to his commitment to providing a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for his guests.


“Wanted to drop a quick review of RUCKUS Charters. We chose RUCKUS and were able to fish with them on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. We arrived and Capt. Ray and Capt. Andrew met us at the dock at 5:15. They were very professional and helped us get all our gear on board. We were a party of 6. Some of us had prior deep sea charter experience and others none. We got under way quickly and they had plugs in the water immediately after coming out if the harbor. They briefed us on safety and the fishing.

2 hours into the trip, we had a good size marlin on one of the lines. The individual on real had never caught any fish in salt water before. Andrew worked with him on the fishing tactics, and he was able to land a very nice blue marlin in the boat. Ray and Andrew worked as a well-oiled team and made the experience one of the best bucket list moments for a first timer!!!

I have worked on a marlin boat and have taken a number of charters in the past. I will say that Capt. Ray and Capt. Andrew NEVER stopped working. Andrew worked constantly to find the right color plug to get the bite. Capt. Ray drove the boat close to 80 miles looking for fish. These 2 worked hard to get the fish. This was a crew that treated the fishing guests like guests and NEVER talked down to anyone and interacted with all of us. We had one of the best times of our trip to Hawaii with the crew of the RUCKUS.

One other note… I was taken aback at how young Capt. Ray was. In his early 30's I had NEVER seen a captain of a charter so young. DON'T BE FOOLED!!! Capt. Ray is one of the hardest working, knowledgeable, and safety-conscious captains I have seen. He is salty for sure and knows the Hawaiian waters.

Thanks, guys. You made our trip one to remember. We will be back and will definitely recommend the RUCKUS!!!”
