Very clean and comfortable boat. Captain Dave did a great job putting us on the meat. Our family enjoyed some mahi tacos and tuna poke! Operations manager Adam was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

We had a blast! The first part of the morning was pretty slow but after that we started pulling them in like crazy! The service was amazing and the fish was delicious!

I prefer cold water fishing, but this was fun. I would defiantly fish with Finest Kind again. The waters around Maui were awesome.
