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.

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

Aloha Ray & Gary, Thanks for the compliments of my Captain & crew. Captain Lance is a humble man who is good at what he does. He doesn't even like to get into pictures with our customers. I tell him too cause we need them for our website & social media! Our crew guys work super hard as well. We... 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

Wow! Absolutely the best vacation day ever as a parent. My son and I have been trying to master the art of fishing for the last 15 years with little luck! We headed out early in the morning with Captain Lance Keener and his first mate Ikeena. I have to admit to a little bit of pessimism due to our... More

We went on the 4 hour shared trip to experience deep sea fishing. One guy on the boat hooked a 150 lb yellow fin and it was an exciting trip to see that fish make it to the boat. V and Bo were great hosts. Highly recommend OFC to anyone looking for a adventure in Kauai!
