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

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
