Recently booked a private charter on Fire Hatt because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. After reading The Fire Hatt web page , I thought this was a great Charter company. I WAS WRONG! I would reconsider using Fire Hatt. I originally scheduled our time frame from 12 pm to 6. On the day of our Charter, I was... More

Our family spent a great day on the water with Capt. Joe and crew. We caught a 250# blue marlin on a day when others in the fleet were struggling to get a bite. Crew friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. They know their business. This trip has been the highlight of our Hawaii vacation thus far. If you're looking for... More

The captain and mate were knowledgeable and friendly- and they knew where to look for fish!!! The boat was very clean and comfortable- covered places to sit up top... More

As the saying goes, "It's called fishing, not catching". However, my son still got a nice Mahi Mahi which was a great dinner for 2 nights. Can't say enough about the crew. Joe and Brett were outstanding. It's a great boat with a friendly and helpful crew. We had an excellent time.

Our time with Fire Hatt Charters was superb. Capt Chuck communicated quickly with us, gave us a ton of flexibility in dates / times. He even allowed us to change trip start times and duration on the day of each charter. We booked two different trips with Fire Hatt and enjoyed every minute of our charters. While on the boat,...

We had the pleasure of spending a full day with Joe and Brett yesterday. We never caught a fish. But it really didn't even matter! They worked so hard to get us a fish but some days they just aren't there. They switched up lures throughout the day and taught my son how to work all the gear. They were... More
