Sorry this couple didn't catch a fish. The hardest thing about having a sport fishing charter business is not catching fish. We don't do a lot of changing up of lures since our best lures are out at the beginning of the charter and changing them doesn't do much good. As you can see from the vast majority of our... More

We were impressed with the charter starting when we booked our fishing trip with the owner. He was fast in his responses and honest with the fishing expectations for our time of year. His sincerity and communications ensured we booked with High Noon (Great customer service, thank you). The moment we boarded the vessel I knew Captain Dee Bradford had... More

Thanks Dustin, we appreciate your review. That was a nice Spearfish, congratulations on a great day. As you know, fishing doesn't always mean catching and catching a beautiful billfish like that is a nice experience. Look forward to fishing with you again soon More

A group of 6 of us booked a fishing charter with High Noon Sport Fishing & had the most wonderful day on the water! The boat suited our needs perfectly - comfortable & in excellent shape.

Hi Megan...thank you for the great review, glad you and your group had a great time. I remember that charter well. Catching that Spearfish right off the bat took alot of pressure off us. We love to catch nice fish. Then that huge Blue Marlin put on quite a show, you got to swim in the open ocean and then... More

We had an excellent and productive trip With captain Dee Bradford and mate Matthew. The crew was knowledgeable and supportive. Our captain knew " every rock in the pond" and Matthew had a way with the lures enticing a few fish back 3 or 4 times. We landed a 120 lb Striped Marlin with video and pics provided. It was... More

My girlfriend and I had one unforgettable day on the water. Following the disappointment of our original charter being cancelled due to inclement weather we rescheduled for the next day, and boy were we glad! Before all the lines were even in the water we had a bite and we pulled in a beautiful looking spear fish. We then spent... More

Hi Tom and Daisy....What an incredible half day charter. It is a day that will live in both our memories forever. The incredible charge of that huge blue Marlin coming 60 mph toward the boat and powering up while it missed us by inches and all on video, couldn't have been more perfct. Coming all the way from Perth, Australia... More

This was my 30th time to charter a fishing boat in the Hawaiian Islands. The first day, February 24th there were four of us, and we caught an ono, a small striped marlin, and a short nosed spearfish. I also missed another ono. The second day, February 26th, the rest of my party went shopping and I went alone. I... More

Hi Bill.....thanks for the positive review. You mentioned that you had been fishing in Kona about 30 times when you booked that charter and wanted a good boat to replace the one that had retired. You had quite the variety of fish on your two charters that week plus a wide variety of good eathing fish...Mahi Mahi, Ono and Spearfish.... More

Their Charter Boat is a great venue for getting out on the water. Both Dee and Andrew were fun, engaging, professional, and hardworking. The boat is purpose built for fishing. Very stable and large enough to make your trip to sea to be comfortable. Andrew was nice enough to clean our catch. I highly recommend the High Noon team. We'll... More

Capt. Andrew did a fine job with our 3/4 day trip.... Caught many bait fish, trolled amongst porpoise and humpbacks. Caught an excited striped marlin (ok, we were excited, too!), which was prepared for grilling dockside...what a day!

Our party of six (3 men and spouses) had a wonderful half-day fishing experience on High Noon! Capt Andrew Peterson welcomed us aboard, made us comfortable and provided just the right amount of attention to our needs. The boat is in excellent condition and Capt Andrew handles it smoothly.

Hi Doc and Ganelle.... Thank you for the positive review and feedback from your charter last week. We really enjoyed having your group aboard HighNoon and glad you enjoyed your charter. Seeing the dolphins and catching two billfish on a half day charter is pretty cool. Unfortunately no humpback whales....but that can wait until next year. Thanks again...!! More

We booked a full day with Highnoon and had a great day on the water with Trevor and Andrew. It was low season so the fishing was slow until the last hour when we caught a HUGE bull Mahi Mahi!
