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!

Lee and Ikena were great at helping us catch all the fish we needed. The four o f us each caught Ono and Skipjack while we were out. Great day of fishing.

This charter really takes care of the customers! Lee and Ikena are first class guys when operating the boat and catching fish. They made sure everyone caught a fish. At the end of the day, they shared a generous portion of fish to take home. I can't wait to fish this these guys again.

We had a great trip. Knowledgable crew came through for us when the fish weren't biting at the beginning of the trip. As V said we poured it on in the 8th and 9th innings to bring in a good catch of some tasty fish.

My husband, 10 year old son, and I went out with "V" and Kalani. Both of these guys were knowledgeable and professional. We caught 7 beautiful fish. Unfortunately for me and my son, we were sea sick most of the trip. Kalani (?) was super nice about it and just casually emptied our puke buckets in between reeling in the... More

We had a mixed group of charters which made things difficult with my sea sickness. Even with taking Dramamine beforehand the big choppy Hawaiian waves disagreed with me. I puked a lot... After about two hours and with both parties having reeled in fish, I asked that me and my 8 yr old be dropped off. The captain politely let... More

Aloha Enlai, This yr for the last two months the ocean has been at upper end of our operating scale. when the weather man says its 15 knotts of wind we are going. Lately forecasts have been off and Capt. Lance said the wind picked up substantially that day but was still within doable & safe conditions or he wouldn't... More

Our crew, V and Okenna were great. Very knowledgeable and willing to talk about their fishing experiences. The fishing was slow. Only 5 of 6 people caught something on the trip. Which was disappointing since everyone we talked to said the fish were biting. Plus they told us the previous three trips had good outings. But, that's fishing. The boat... More

Aloha Bill, Slow day of fishing? The boat caught two ono , one mahi mahi or was it the other way around? Also a bunchl of tuna. Plus the boat got a 100lb yellow fin almost on the boat and line snapped. I'd call that some action to say the least and a good day on the water. Everyone sees... More

I've fished on a lot of blue water charters but my wife had not ever gone. The captain and deck mate were professional, courteous and put us on fish. Great experience and I would recommend them to my friends
