I had the opportunity to go on Topshape with a few of my girlfriends and we had the best time! Such a beautiful boat and amazing crew. I would highly recommend them and can't wait to go out on the water again. Thank you Capt Al and First Mate John!

A perfect way to top off a Big Island vacation was our fishing trip on Topshape.....Caught our first "bill fish" and observered a pod of whales up close. The captain and crew was great and very accommodating.

Beautiful day on water, blue marlin, stripe marlin. And short nose spearfish. Capt. Al and 1st mate John make an enjoyable trip even better with high energy, good humor and patience with novice and experienced anglers. This is our 6th trip and it gets better each time.
