Our immaculately maintained 43' Cabo is an epitome of luxury gamefishing in Hawaii.

I was on TopShape a year and half ago and gave them a five star review. I went on it again earlier this month and I swear the boat was cleaner and nicer. Captain Al remembered me as did John and they could not have been nicer or more helpful. We saw a 750 lb Marlin jump clearm out of... More

spent the day with Captains Al and John on their pristine and beyond fabulous boat. It is obvious that they take great pride in their ship and their job. We took a family with 3 teens for the day, and the wifi, cable and luxurious cabin (plus bathroom) was perfect for all of us. Kept them entertained and out of... More

My family had a great time for the day.It was slow season but the crew made sure they got to reel in some fish. We did get a big fish hit.That one just got away. Al and John were great.Even when the younger one struggled to find his sea legs. I'd definitely go again when we return to Kona.

Welcome back Captain Al.....my husband and I had 2 amazing days of fishing with Captain Al and Captain John on the Topshape. First off the pictures and panoramic view of the boat on Topshape's website doesn't do it justice.... This is by far the nicest, cleanest and well equipped boat we have been on!!! We watched the Seattle Seahawk game... More

Our 8 hour trip on Topshape goes down as one of the most memorable, exciting, epic adventures I've ever experienced, and I've done some crazy cool stuff!! My wife, 13 year old son, and I will be talking about this FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES!! The yacht is spacious, immaculate, and sooo comfortable I even took a nap in... More

We have been coming to the Big Island for over 30-years now and have literally chartered dozens of sportfishing boats over that time. The Topshape boat and crew rank up there as one of the best we have had the privilege to experience. The 43' foot Cabo is emaculate and comfortable with an air conditioned galley, large clean head, and... More

My family was happily greeted by Captain Al and John right on schedule at the harbor. We instantly felt relaxed on their incredible boat after getting a tour of our "home" for the next 6 hours. We trolled the waters all day and although we didn't catch anything or even get a bite, it was still an awesome experience. John... More

We just returned from our Hawaiian trip, and fishing aboard Topshape was the highlight. We hooked up to an Ono within the first 10 minutes of leaving the Harbor. After trolling for about an hour I hooked onto my first Blue Marlin!!! After a few hours of trolling, and discovering Captain Al was a fellow Chico State alumni, we thought... More
