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

I had the distinct pleasure of heading out with Capt. Chuck and first mate Brett back in late July. While we didn't land the big one, my son and I had a fabulous time and are looking forward to a return trip in the near future. Quality people/boat/equipment in Kona - what else could you ask for? What to bring:... More

Thanks to captain Chuck and his mate Mike in making a lifelong memory for me by landing a 140lb. Wicked Ahi Tuna. The guys were first class. The Firehatt found the Fish!!! If you are ever in Kona, Hawaii be sure to go out on the Firehatt with Captain Chuck. Professionalism all the way. Hookup!!!! Best, Evan Berns

Today was an unbelievable experience. Chuck and Linda are absolutely wonderful people. Their first mate Brett was also a real pleasure to meet and get to know. We caught an amazing 200lb Blue Marlin, which was our first and hopefully not our last on Fire Hatt. It was a real treat to learn all about our 3 new friends and... More

We were treated to a first rate fishing experience. The captain and crew mate were awesome. The boat was very comfortable and they provided great snacks. WE didn't catch any fish but had a great experience anyway. The scenery on the water was awesome.

If you are going to book a fishing charter in Kona, not sure why you would pick anyone other than the Fire Hatt crew. We did our research, and selected Fire Hatt to take us out for some world class fishing. The rest of our friends made a last minute booking with a different boat, and we wagered "infinity drinks"...

Researched quite a number of charters for our family visit to Kona. Based on previous reviews, we decided to go with Fire Hatt and we all agreed that we made the right choice. Very nice boat, high quality gear, friendly and knowledgeable crew. If I have to fish the Kona area in the future, I will definitely go with the... More

My 16 year old son and I fished a full day with Captain Chuck Wilson and his deck hand Brett for the first time after having spent a total of 4 days on previous trips to Kona on a different charter. This was a much more enjoyable and highly educational experience than what we experienced previously. A friendly and very... More
