We booked with Topshape after reading reviews and wanted a great experience for my dads 60th birthday. We were more than happy!!!! Captain Al and John were knowledgable, fun, and they found fish! Dad got to bring in his first bill fish and we were able to take plenty home to cook! Topshape is a beauty and handled our "rough"... More

Capt. Al and John we're some of the coolest guys to go out with on the water for some big game fish hunting. We got there around 7am and saw how they prepped the charter with all the fishing lines and lures and was fascinated by the science of making the big catch. Our group had about 10 people, and...

What a great day fishing with Captain Al and John! Their knowledge and expertise coupled with their great personalities made it a most enjoyable day! The best part was our catch...2 short nose Spearfish and a mahi mahi. We will definitely book again! Remember "you have to hook them to cook them"!!

Captain Al and John were very positive and professional, and were great communicators while we were inquiring about their services.They were knowledgeable and were experienced at what they do. The boat was very beautiful, spotless, and comfortable. Last week, we caught an impressive Mahi Mahi on our trip with them, and it was delicious! We also saw some pods of... More

Capt Al and John are true professionals. The boat is immaculate and a steal at their charter rates. We've fished around the world and would rank them top of the class. Thanks gentlemen for a great day.

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.

We watched the Seattle Seahawk game... More
