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.

I also have a family who are less enthusiastic about fishing than me but who enjoy it all the same and on these family vacations it is very important to me to find a guide and... More

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

Went out on Feb 24 with Joe and Brett. Though we only caught a single Mahi Mahi we had a fabulous time.. Joe and Brett went out of ther way to make sure that we had the best experience. We saw humpback whales including breaching whales, pilot whales, dolphins and a jumping marlin that, unfortunately, was hooked by another boat!... More

Had a good day on the water with Brett and Joe. Caught two mahi mahi and two shortbill spear fish. Seen tones of mahi mahi by a floating net. Nice boat too.

Working with Chuck to book the trip was very easy, the boat was beautiful, Joe and Brian were wonderful and catching a 450 lb marlin was the icing on the cake. Just being on the water seeing dolphins and whales on such a nice boat with such nice guys is a treat in itself but catching such a fish was... More

His parents recently flew in from Virginia Beach and we wanted to do something special for them, we had chartered boats in the past for full day trips and unfortunately haven't had the best experiences here in Kona. We decided to try Fire Hatt & we... More

So my review is a little different than others. I have been to Hawaii several times with different fishing boats on the big island. This was my first time scheduling with the FIRE HATT boat and Captain Chuck. The only downside was that a couple days before my trip, Hurricane Ana was moving in on the big island and I... More
