With an air conditioned salon, Wi-Fi, master stateroom, shower and state-of-the-art amenities, TOPSHAPE is one of the most comfortable fishing charters you will ever experience.

I have fished many charter operations from Alaska to Mexico. None are close to the professionalism and attention to detail exhibited on Topshape. Boat and equipment are of tournament quality. I walked on the boat to find the stainless in "topshape" without a fingerprint in sight. Captain Al is pro fish hunter and John is the best deck hand that... More

Went out with Top Shape on March 25th 2014 and just have nothing but good things to say. The boat was immaculate with all kinds of amenities. Two bathrooms that were sparkling clean, air conditioned main deck, padded viewing seats on the fly bridge and more! The boat was laid out ready for fishing which we started doing just after... More

I went on this boat recently and had an amazing time! Captain Al was a great captain who made sure we saw lots of whales and had a good time! The boat was beautiful. It was perfect for everyone sine there is an inside cabin for those who wanted to chill and relax, but also a huge sun deck where... More

Captain Al and Mate John were every bit as good as advertised on Trip Advisor. I researched many sport fishing companies and settled on Topshape due its superior ratings. They did not disappoint. It was a slow day for marlin (although we did get a nice hit on "the one that got away"). Still, Al and John made sure my... More

My family of 4 booked an all day charter over spring break. Just walking up to Topshape you realize the boat is just as amazing as the pictures portray. Captain Al and John were both very personable. We enjoyed listening to their knowledge of fishing as well as the island. Lets not forget being able to go up top to... More

Did a full day charter on the Topshape on Wednesday, March 19th. There were 4 in our party including my father in his 70s , my 13 year-old son, and my brother-in-law. The highlight of the day was my son landing a 325 lb blue marlin! The Topshape is spectacular and Captain Al and First Mate John couldn't have been... More

My 9 year old son, wife, and I charted Topshape on Friday, March 7th for the 3/4 day charter. The boat is absolutely amazing! I have taken dozens of charters and this was the nicest boat I have had the opportunity to fish. Captain Al asked us what we wanted to fish for and listened to our request to try... More

I cannot say enough about Captain Al and first mate John. I chartered the Topshape for a 2/3 day fishing trip with my 3 children. My objective was to make the trip a memorable one for the kids. Captain Al and John reached and exceeded our expectations. I have been fishing the ocean for over 25 years and the Topshape... More

I just landed back on the mainland and made it a point to write a review of TOPNOTCH, Captain Al and his first mate, John. Both were outstanding hosts, extremely professional and knowledgeable. Captain Al's boat is stunning, immaculate and more comfortable than any hotel in Hawaii! As a former resident of HI and an avid diver, I have been... More
