Incredible!! We had the best time. My boyfriend and I didn't know what to expect. We booked for the 2am trip so we woke up at 1, realized that we couldn't get an uber at the time and honestly had the worse time trying to...More
Captain Tim, aka Timster, was the best!! His deck hand Matt, was awesome as well!! The boat was spotless and it was very clear from the beginning, that this was the fishing excursion we were looking for!! We had a great day, caught some fish...More

I own and operate a charter elsewhere in the United States. However, I’m not affiliated with these guys in any way. I just love fishing in Maui and these guys are my choice. I understand what it takes to have a successful operation. Johnny and...More
You will see split ratings which is driven by different Captains. We got the Captain that got the gear in the water and then we trolled for 6 hours with not one bite. I know its fishing but most Captains are changing something to try...More
We took a 6 hour charter. Capitan Tim and Mate Anthony were great. There was not a lot of catching going on, with only one Ono landed, but it was not for lack of trying. They worked hard for us, but the fish weren't biting....More
Me and the grandson had a fun day fishing, he caught a nice size Wahoo and the other couple caught one mahi-mahi. That was the only 2 fish we caught in a 4 hour trip. The seas were not bad at all, but was a...More
We couldn't figure out why the ratings were split between good and bad until we arrived at the dock. There are multiple boats, you see, not just one. So if you get a bad one, you are out of luck. The Captain said hello and...More

Our boat used artificial, surface lures only. The said that for the shorter, four hour trip that was the typical set up and method. All rigging done by first mate. They indicated that they would set hooks. Everyone assigned a pole. I cannot speak to other methods...the longer trips may utilize other methods. I am sure each boat/crew is different, but our crew was friendly and seemed willing to allow us to get involved and to answer questions. My take is that it's their territory....they know more about it than I do (my deep sea fishing experience is very limited). They indicated that there would be no charge to keep or clean fish. We were given the option to keep fish, give them to the crew, or release. Moot point as we did not catch. Booked trip through my hotel who offered option to cook anything we caught and kept...again....moot.
