You never know what kind of hosts you'll have for these charters. As 2 women going out fishing, we see all kinds of attitudes. But Howard and V were great company and worked hard to get us some fish on a day when they weren't very interested in biting. We did a 6 hour private charter and they worked all... More

I was referred to Ohana by the captain I usually use on Kauai. Ohana was incredibly professional, quickly answering phone messages, confirming by email and another confirmation with a phone call. The boat was in great condition and ready to go on time. The one issue some people might have is that there isn't a real enclosed head. More an... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a great trip! After this review was posted I have received a few phone calls pertaining to it's content. I would like to clear up a couple comments that may be misleading. First off our head or bathroom is completely enclosed in the front cabin of the boat. Inside it is... More

One of the great parts of offshore fishing Kauai is you are in fishing water right out of the harbor, no long trips just to get to the fish. Our group first got on some smaller tuna, which was awesome because the boat was equipped with some smaller spinning rods that made fighting these fish a lot of fun. Who... More

2nd trip with Ohana and this one was an experience of a lifetime. A half hour after leaving port, we hooked up a 150 lb Tuna and I fought it for a 1/2 before we landed it. Biggest fish I have ever caught or seen caught! My wife came along as a ride along and it was a bit bumpy... More

Fishing the Pacific Ocean was top priority when planning our trip to Kauai. Ohana Fishing Charters came highly recommended by friends and we could not agree more. Cynthia was so helpful and such a pleasure to work with in our booking. Howard and V certainly provided us with a fun filled day of stories, adventure and plenty of fish. Extremely... More

We fished with Lance 2 years ago, and were very excited to do it again- this time with 5 guys instead of 2. We did the 6 hour AM tour again. We got 6 mahamahi and loads of tuna. We could have been reeling in tuna all AM, but wanted the variety. As with my last review, I will say... More

We left 30 minutes late (captains fault). Didn't catch a single fish and had to pay full (4 hour price). We fished 12:30-4 and was very disappointed with a very inexperienced captain and full charge price for NO FISH.

Thanks for the review. I normally would write an educational response to a review such as this but I believe any educated human could see through this review and the type of person who wrote it. If you write reviews at least be honest. This review is a blatant lie. The young man did not catch fish when he went... More

We took a 6-hour private trip with Captain Lance and V. last Tuesday. From the moment we stepped on the dock, the guys were attentive, informative and respectful And they did a great job of finding fish. From the moment we set out the bait lines until a school of porpoise showed up four hours into the trip and messed... More

Captain Lance, you and Bo are truly incredible! I have been on at least a dozen charters so I understand that it is easy to get "skunked" but you made what could have easily been a poor trip into a fantastic trip! If you are a perspective customer than look no further, Lance and Bo are the REAL deal! We... More
