Scott and Rob are the best! Two 75lb tuna first hour out on a very angry ocean day. Woohoo!! Lahela is the best on the island.

Captain Scott and his assistant Austin were very attentive and prompt with every need. They over-performed in every regard. We had lines in the water from the moment we left the dock; as a result we immediately snagged two Mahi-Mahi! Later we caught three more....More
