I take my fishing pretty seriously (I have a problem!) and put a lot of research into finding a boat to go out on while in Kauai with my wife and our friends. After narrowing things down to a few outfits, I ultimately chose Ohana for a combination of price, boat and customer service. Even though it was the holidays,... More

I loved my day with Capt. "V", Kalani and my fellow anglers aboard the Ho'omaikai. We caught 3 fabulous yellowfin tuna, and were regularly entertained by the Capt. and crew. Lifetime memories!

So glad I choose this fishing charter as V and Bo were awesome and really love the "family" (that's what Ohana means) treatment. The boat and the reels are no nonsense as this charter/boat can catch fish up to 1000lbs+. It's not a luxury boat by any means, but that's not what I was looking for. Fishing is in there... More

What a great bunch of people. From my initial contact with Cynthia it was clear this was a family business that absolutlely valued and placed the customer first. Cynthia made sure we had all of the details, made follow up calls to provide last minute briefs (where to meet, weather, etc). We met at the docks at 5:30 and were... More

Our grandkids caught a small yellowfin (maybe 2-3 pounds)and a skipjack about 6-7 pounds). Not big fish but their first blue water fish. They both really enjoyed the trip – great weather, easy 2-3 foot seas, saw hundreds of dolphin and large yellowtail thrashing the water chasing bait fish, saw the Orca (very rare in Hawaii) which went under our...

My wife and I went on a 4-hour trip with Lance and "V". There was a pretty good swell and wind blowing which made for a rough ride and didn't do much for the fishing, but I still caught a small yellowfin tuna - unbelievably good sushi and ceviche! Lance was very professional and determined, and seemed genuinely disappointed that... More

I took a 4 hour shared trip with Lance and V. Definitely a newbie, but they put me at ease immediately with a "Good, then we don't have to break any bad habits!". Very professional. We had a mixed group of skill levels, ages and backgrounds on board and everyone was treated well. I highly recommend this charter.

My husband and I went on a four hour charter with Lance and V. Even though it was a cloudy rainy day it didn't matter. My husband caught a 150 pound Blue Marlin. Capt. Lance and mate V know there stuff. They are professional, knowledgable and really fun to spend 4 hours with. I would highly recommend Ohana if you... More
