Captain Lance and his mate go out of their way to get you on the fish and make a fun day for you. We caught one mahi mahi and everyone on the boat was able to get a great meal from it. Highly recommended. Thank you for the adventure!

One word comes to mind when I read this review, GRACIOUS. A five star review and only caught one fish! Again fishing is very subjective, each individual will have their own view. Ohana Fishing Charters works hard and is consistent in trying to get fish on the boat each and every time we go out. If they're there chances are... More

"Trip" I was almost a little hesitant to click on this review, lol. Was thinking like is this customer saying we are trip? I suppose to some we could be a trip but happy to further read this brief & positive review! All the boats could be a little bigger I suppose but it wouldn't make for a better ride... More

I would highly recommend Ohana Fishing Charters! The crew were the best I have ever had while deep sea fishing. They worked incredibly hard to put us on the fish and we caught a spear fish and 12 tuna. They fileted the fish for us on the dock afterwards. I will definitely go fishing with them once more. The captain... More

My husband, my twelve year old grandson, and I went deep sea fishing with Ohana Fishing Charters on the last day of my grandson's 7 week Kauai visit with us. He worked hard and landed a 20 pound skipjack tuna. He said it was the best day of his vacation. It was a great morning for us all.

Aloha, This would be a great way to end a vacation with a little one and I am certainly glad it happens with us. A twenty pounder for a seven year old is quiet an accomplishment. This may mean another trip out to Kauai you know. LOL Thanks for review! Mahalo, Cynthia Keener More

It was a pretty slow day at sea. We caught 2 Mahi Mahi and 1 smaller tuna. However compared to our last fishing trip in Florida we felt this was a good catch. :) Lance and Kalani were fun and helpful and kept it interesting.

Overall great experience with Lance and Kalani. We were a party of 5 on a 6 hr private charter; 2 adults and 3 kids (16,14,8). The water was little rougher than I expected. The captain tried his best to get us fish. In the end, we ended up with 4 tunas and plenty for dinner. Thanks Ohana!

Aloha, We do aim to please & no one wants to get fish on the boat more than the Captain & crew. Deep sea fishing can be on of the most thrilling sports around, shear competition between you & the fish. It can be frustrating when they aren't biting good. Trust me I know but I am so glad you...

This was my first trip ocean fishing and had very little in the way of expectation. However, in the 4 hours we were out, we did not get even a single bite. The most exciting thing that happened was that we saw a pod of dolphins. It was just a long boat ride on choppy water.

Did someone bring bananas on the boat? Unfortunately we have days that we get skunked, on average about once a month and we are a busy company. Ocean conditions were 4-6 feet & 10 - 15 knots of wind. This is what we go out in all year long. Two key things you mentioned were your first time & you... More

Captain Lance and his crew were great! They put us on the fish and sent us home with enough filets to feed 6 for 3 meals! I highly recommend a private charter. We did the 4 hour private charter and I'm so glad we did! When I return to Hawaii, I will be booking another private charter with Captain Lance... More

I'd say five fish is better than none. I hear your dissatisfaction through your review. Like I have mentioned before fishing can be very subjective to each customer that comes out with us. That day you caught Mahi Mahi's, skip jack tuna (Starkist), Ono & Yellow Fin. That's a great day & almost a Hawaiian grand slam! I am thinking... More
