Captain Lance and crew did a great job for me on a difficult fishing day ... steep seas and windy conditions at the upper limit of their operations.

Aloha, Thank you for the great review. It really helps our potential customers when coming from a seasoned fisherman such as yourself. Yes, these waters out here are to be taken seriously and the type of boat matters. Some people look at only the aesthetics, bells & whistles so to speak, a comfy cab etc.. lol Really? We are the...

My husband and I went to Kauai for our honeymoon and went deep sea fishing. Our captain Howard and helper kalani were amazing!!! So much fun and accomidating. I was the only female but they made sure the toilet was set up for me. I was actually the only one who caught something! They even cut it up for us!!!

My husband and I went on a 6 hour trip and it was amazing. I highly recommend taking Dramamine the night before and morning of, the waves can be intense. E and Howard were determined to make sure we would have a great time. They said that the past 2 days they hadn't caught any fish so they wanted to... More

Thank you for your realistic review. Of course everyone has the best time when they catch, always. But ya got to remember it's called fishing not catching. Our goal is to catch as you can always tell, our guys work really hard for you. If there is one thing I can say about our reviews is 99% of everyone writing... More

Beautiful and smooth trip. The crew was great. My only complaint is the fish were not having anything to do with us on this day. Enjoyable anyway. Will try again another time.

Aloha, Thanks for understanding that here & there fishing can be slow at times and fish can be picky eaters or smarter than we think they are. We will try our hardest to get fish on w/o a doubt. Thank you for taking the time out to write a nice review. Cynthia More

Captain and crew could not have been more accommodating. Beautiful morning on the water, spectacular scenery, boat and equipment were outstanding. Very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend if coming to Kauai and want time on the water.

One of the best charters we have been on. Scheduling was easy. The crew was great from start to finish. We had a blast the entire time and caught a lot of fish including a huge, blue marlin! Can't thank these guys enough. Highly recommend!

Aloha, BEST TRIP YOU'D EVER BEEN ON!! I will take that:) Although fishing is very subjective. I am betting you caught fish too! Yes I am being a little sassy, but whenever people catch they have a great time & when they don't that's when we see not so nice reviews. We want our guests to catch for sure &... More

Outside of the fact that a couple of us ended up getting sick (even after taking medicine), it was a great adventure. My fiancé and I booked a half-day shared trip one day and booked a half-day private charter the next day. Caught 2 mahi mahi the first day and 3 yellowfin tuna the next. Both captains were great and... More

Aloha Tammy, Yep Tuna (yellow fin) have been ON!! It's been a pleasant surprise actually. Normally BIG tunas are elsewhere. Just goes to show anything can happen out here as I often tell customers. Kauai fishing can be some of the best in the world so I hear:) We have a special advantage over a lot of other vessels here.... More
