Our family of four had a great time. Captain Don and his deck hand Asher were great with our 10 and 6 year olds. They worked really hard to make our trip fun and catch fish. The boat was nice and clean. Thanks “uncle” Don! Kade is already talking about the next trip!

Captain Donnie and Liko created a fantastic fishing experience for my brother, niece, nephew and I! Donnie is an enthusiastic captain and genuinely enjoys sharing his island/fishing knowledge while creating an entertaining trip. He made my niece and nephew feel like they were included in the experience which made them feel comfortable and welcomed. With Donnie's expert guidance, we were able to quickly hook two large yellowfin tuna almost immediately after reaching our chosen fishing grounds. Liko helped my nephew and niece use correct and efficient reeling technique while safely pulling the fish in the boat. Overall, we caught 3 yellowfin tuna and one rare

Captain Don and Liko put us on the tuna today! We caught 8 really nice big eye tuna! My wife had never been deep sea fishing before but Captain Don and first mate, Liko, did an amazing job coaching her and making sure she had a great experience. The scenery of the island from out on the ocean was simply breath-taking and that was my wife's favorite part of the whole experience. For myself, the fishing was amazing and Captain Don and Liko work super hard to put you on the fish! This is my 2nd trip with Captain Don and you can bet every chance I get back to Kauai I'll be booking a charter with Captain Don.

My girlfriend and I went out on a 4 hour shared charter with Captain Don & Liko and could not have had a better experience. The water was unusually calm and both Don & Liko were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about both fishing and Kauai in general. We started off trolling but were able to switch to bait fishing due to the calm water and that’s where we had most of our success. Not only did we catch some great fish that later turned into delicious meals but the whole experience is something that we will never forget. The entire time we felt right at home with great jokes and fishing stories from Don. My girlfriend and I are by no means experienced at fishing but Don & Liko were very kind, patient and helpful with us throughout the entire trip. I would recommend booking with Captain Don 100% and next time we are back in Kauai it is a must for us. If you are thinking about booking a trip, do it now and thank yourself later!

My fiancé and I spent time with Captain Don and deck hand Joey for a 3/4 day trip. We had a terrific time, from catching bait fish to finishing off the day with a 30+ Mahi, an Amber Jack over 25, and a nice grey snapper for dinner! The skipper and Joey did a great job of working for fish, telling stories, and taking care of us. The seas were calm, plenty of sunshine, and a clean and well-equipped boat. We contributed a couple of new trivia questions for Don’s repertoire:) Highly recommend this company and will visit them again one day!
