The crew was really nice and it was obvious that they are professionals. Capitan Russell did his best so we can catch a fish and we did it. I would hightly recommend that boat and crew to everyone who is interested in fishing in Oahu.

We did a private 1/2 day. It was a great experience. We got sea sick despite taking Dramamine so I would avoid eating beforehand to see how you will do. We arrived at 4:45 and the crew was waiting and ready to go. They had us back at the time we requested to return. The boat was very nice and... More

Phoned up Magic Fishing Charters and booked without much notice. Best decision I have ever made for fishing. Captain Russell, Eric and Paulie looked after our group perfectly. They are total professionals, nice guys and people who love to catch big fish! We had 4 people on board 'Magic' and all caught 100lb plus Tuna. The full day charter is... More

I have been on many fishing charters in Hawaii. They are pretty much all the same. Magic Sportfishing proves to be a cut above the rest. With them it seems to be more about catching fish than just taking your money and watching the clock until it's time to return to the dock. Captain Russell tries harder and take more... More

With over 30+ years experience fishing Hawaii Captain Russell is all business and no nonsense. Expect to be told what to do and be ready to follow orders. This is serious deep sea fishing. Everything is done with the utmost care for the the safety of the guests and crew. If you are looking for a ' booze cruise '... More

Just went fishing with my dad, Captain Russell, Pauli, and Nick. It could not have turned out better unless we would have caught that final Yellow Fin. The day started off early and man these guys know how to catch live bait. It was awesome how fast that they caught it and how we got out of there quick before... More
