I wouldn't go back on the water with Jeff Rogers again if you paid me. The boat is an unorganized mess, the cabin is filthy, and Rogers is a complete egotist. We trolled for a few hours and then Jeff decided that HE would bottom fish.He wouldn't even let us hold the rods( I guess he didn't want us to... More

Todd obviously has better social skills than I do because I had no idea that he was hating me so much. He obviously didn’t care for my confident and positive attitude about my ability to catch fish. I filleted a tuna for him at the end of the day and I even got a nice tip. Todd talked about his... More

Captain Jeff knows the Kona/Kohala sport fishery like most people know their own back yard. I've been coming to the big island fishing for more than 30 years and I've never found a more knowledgeable or harder working boat captain than Jeff Rogers. Today's trip was the 6th or 7th time out on the Aloha Kai. We've caught spearfish, Mahi... More

At first, I was very worried, a storm front was coming through and I wondered if my trip was going to be canceled. I called Jeff the day before to inquire about options because there were supposed to be 13'-18' waves and a small boat advisory on the western side. Note to self-don't believe meteorologists. My options were limited. He... More

Captain Jeff Rogers was an amazing captain. Most of them are jerks and under deliver. I have a home in the Florida keys and an offshore boat. He is very knowledgeable and gives you the best chance of catching a huge marlin in Kona! Excellent trip!

This guy still can’t get his dates straight! This happened on the 29th. Not the 30th as he wrote. I also find it strange that this review comes from a John S when that’s not this guys name at all. And he gave himself a helpful review vote on top of that. If you book any activity, parasail, dive, horseback,... More

Loved my time on Captain Jeff's boat. He does a great job communicating with you beforehand so you can prepare for the trip. He also is a really good teacher, showing you how to properly use his equipment and coaching you as you bring in fish. I got completely smoked reeling in a huge Almaco Jack, one of the largest...

Had a great day of catching fish with Captain Jeff. One of the biggest highlights of my vacation. Called and secured a Share Charter and was not disappointed from the time we left the marina and got back. Capt. Jeff is great at what he does and not only did we catch fish we were thrilled to hear some of... More

Captain Jeff took us out on a nearly impossible trip today and STILL made it work. While absolutely no one else was able to find fish, the captain tirelessly kept at it and wouldn't give up. He's a true fisherman and a great guy overall too. I highly recommend captain Jeff if you actually like to fish & know what... More

Jeff will try a variety of methods to catch fish each day (eg not just trolling lures or live bait). knows the bottom fishery well. on the other hand: I really do not come fishing to listen to a captains particular religious beliefs/political views
