    Had a great time on the water yesterday. Was very slow fishing but captain kept us out there past our time to make sure we didn’t leave empty handed. Caught 2 beautiful Wahoos on the way in. Made the trip well worth it.

    If you are looking for the classiest, most comfortable boat on island, with an ALL-STAR crew, look no further.

    We have been out with most of the commercial fishing operations available on Kauai over the past 20 years. Apex has changed the game!!

    Captain Mark, who has fished from this harbor for 25 years, started the morning with an awesome safety briefing and fishing demo. He got us pumped to get out there on the water. Even the avid fisherman (and woman) in our group learned something.

    Kyle is a beast on the back deck. He had their competition set up in the water as the boat left the harbor. We got into a bird pile within the first half hour. We all agreed by the end of the trip, that no one on the boat wanted to catch fish more than the Captain and crew.

    Anyone who seeks out deep sea fishing on Kauai, knows that the waters are a bumpy. Shortly out of the harbor you are in thousands of feet of blue water. That's where the 1000lb marlin live! Their boat is really what makes the trip. It was clearly the largest, cleanest, most comfortable boat leaving the harbor that morning.

    We had AC in a comfortable lounge with couches, and they even had the game on (not sure how they did that). There was refrigeration for our drinks, a kitchen, and a legit bathroom. I can't say enough about how different this experience was from all our previous fishing trips. Our past experiences, left us believing that all of Kauai's fishing fleet is in rough shape. Their boat is luxury.

    We were hesitant, as this was a more expensive charter than others at the harbor, but it was money well spent!

    Amazing team who knew exactly where to find the fish and went after them. Staff knew exactly how to handle the fish and my son caught a 65” yellowfin tuna and a skipjack tuna. Would pick this team any day of the week to fish with!

    Great deep sea fishing experience with Apex Charters. Captain Mark and deckhand Owen did a great job working hard to put us on fish. Conditions were tough but we each got the opportunity to catch fish. A great experience!

    I took a six hour trip with Apex Charters and had the intension of hooking up with a blue marlin. Captain Rane and mate Kyle worked hard to get me a fish of a lifetime on the end of my line. We did not find a marlin but I was able to get three nice skip jacks in the boat.
    Mate Kyle was very good at showing me what he was doing while setting our gear for the day. If you love to fish, I would definitely recommend taking the six hour trip aboard the Apex Chaters Ku’ ula kai!

    we were on Kauai for a week and we wanted to take a fishing trip. was not the best experience. deep sea fishing. the poles were set and we were trolling. we could see the lure it was flapping about 30’ behind the boat. we just trolled back and forth for hours. the boat helper came down once and changed the lure. we trolled for ever. we could still see the lure. no one got in the least bit a bite. it was a 4 hour trip from 1100-1500. we ended up getting back at 5 pm. we were miserable crashing the waves for hours. not even a bite. or an attempt to try something different. over 400. for two. if you want a boat ride back and forth with not even an attempt to try something different and feeling miserable. this is the trip for you.

    Thank you for the feedback. Our apologies that you didn't catch, but we can never a guarantee that you will. Due to our rough ocean conditions on Kauai we have to stay on the move and troll. Sounds like we gave some extra time really trying to find the fish that we didn't charge you for. We want nothing more than to catch you fish, but everyone who comes aboard knows it's not guaranteed. Apologies you did not enjoy yourself. Its unfortunate you chose to review us poorly because of reasons most of our guests / fisherman understand. If you join us again on a light and variable day, we will be able to offer different fishing styles. Thank you

    I was recommended to Apex charters from a local friend. He told me they had a big comfortable boat, and they catch. Boy was my friend right! Owner Paul responded quickly and answered all my questions.

    I caught a BIG Ono!! Others on the shared charter caught Ahi and Mahimahi too. In general, they did a very nice job. Captain had good knowledge of the fishing grounds. Crew member Ken (captain too), was entertaining, fun and held safety as a priority. It seems they do private charters, and shared charters. Best of both worlds. This is a great way to get on the water. I had a blast. If you're looking for an epic fishing experience on Kauai, I'd start here.

    Sorry foir the bloody pic. After we got her cleaned up, the Ono ceviche was all time:)

    My Wife and I were in Kauai for a week and wanted to do an open boat fishing trip. Capt. Mark and Tommy did an incredible job from start to finish for our trip. They were welcoming and the boat was very clean. We were lucky enough to land 10 tuna on our 4 hour trip and bring back a few tuna steaks with us for dinner. Couldn’t recommend Apex more. Next time we’re back we’ll be sure to book another trip with them.

    We went out on a beautiful sunny day. The captain and mate were great. We caught 11 Ahu/Skipjack tunas. Sailed back into the harbor and shuffled our passengers. Went back out and whale watched. Saw at least 15. Camera on phone wasn't a great way to photograph them, but it was exciting. I highly recommend Apex. Very professional and fun.

    Apex is the go-to charter service! We booked them for my dad, he’s been wanting to go for years, and they surpassed my expectations.

    Captain Mark and Kyle were fun, kind and most importantly a talented team! And the new boat is gorgeous. I was truly impressed.

    Mahalo for the amazing memories - and all the good eats!
