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

Went on a Monday morning two weeks ago. All employees very accomodating. Beautiful boat. They served us platter of fresh fruit and muffins plus beverages. Caught one wahoo as fishing was slow. They were willing to take us anywhere if they thought it improved our chances and they did. Missed out on tuna despite best efforts. This is a great... More

We had a full day charter on the FIRE HATT with captain Chuck and mate Brent. The boat was fantastic, clean and equipment top notch! While the fishing was kind of slow we did manage a nice spearfish and a tuna which were both kept and cleaned/prepared perfectly for our enjoyment the next day. Chuck tried hard to get us... More

Captain Chuck and his 43 foot Hatteras are phenomenal! We had a group of 5 with varying degrees of fishing experience and we had a blast. It is always nice to catch fish, but the best captain iin the world can never promise you will or they are lying. We did catch a nice skipjack tuna, and obviously would have... More

Spent the day on the water with Chuck and Brett. Although the fish didn't cooperate, the day with these 2 gentleman was well worth it. Boat is outstanding and kept to the highest of standards. Chuck's knowledge of the area and stories made you forget that the fish were elsewhere. Thanks, gentlemen!
