My family of 7 chartered a boat from Bite Me charters. Paid roughly $1000 and got ripped off. Our 4 hour "ocean tour" crew was young captain Taylor, his girlfriend!?&%$!, and his "buddy" first mate in training. We had an exciting start with dolphins following us out of the harbor, and that might as well been the end there.... I... More

Secondly we stopped the bottom fishing to go after pelagic fish at your... More

We went on the Manta Ray night dive with Bite Me Tours. It was an amazing experience! We saw several manta rays who gave us a great show. The staff on the boat were very friendly. The negative to this, however, was that our tour was supposed to include appetizers and hot drinks. It even stated this on our voucher.... More

While visiting Hawaii, we booked 3 activities with this company; the dolphin encounter, a private fishing charter, and the manta ray night dive. We called the company a few times with questions about each activity while trying to figure out a schedule since we had other activities planned; each time we were given different information and the people we spoke...

July 28, 2016, four of us chartered the "BiteMe 3" for a half day on the briny sea in search of Kona's famous sea creatures. All though it was a beautiful day with calm seas with schools of porpoises accompanying us, the fish we were after were not cooperating this morning. We only had two strikes in four hours, and...

Catch fish or not you will have an amazing time on the water wth beautiful views of the island from the ocean. We caught a 50 inch "ono" in the first 10 minutes driving out off shore. The rest of the trip was filled with beautiful sights, a school of pilot whales and some small reef fish. All and all... More

Had a blast. Two man crew and boy did they execute their task with military precision. Brad was very supportive and made it uncomfortable to quit on bringing in the 200 lb yellowfin tuna. Even though it was attack by a shark while reeling the catch in.
