“What an Awesome Time”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Had a fantastic time with Lance and Kelani. The best two to have on the water. Cought 9 tuna that day and typically two at a time and once 3 at a time. Even got to see a few pilot whales. Definately a must do when on the island. Thank you soooo much Captain Lance and Kelani.
Aloha, Shawn and Ed

“Rough times on the high sea”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I was so looking forward to doing this outing, I had never gone deep sea fishing before, but it turned out to be a total bust. There was 4 of us fishing and only once did we got a nibble the whole 4 hours we were out there. The water was very rough and the Capt. said that this was a calm day. I got sick at least 5 times and another person got sick even thought she took sea sickness pills. The Capt. and his first mate were very nice and were very apologetic about not catching any fish. They said they would send some fish our way if they caught some during the week. We were on the island for 7 more days and never heard from them again.

“Great charter”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I did a half day with captain Lance and crew Kalani. These guy's were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. They were happy to talk to the clients and explain what we were doing and on a reasonably rough day when people were getting seasick were understanding towards these poor souls (believe me, I've been on fishing charters with lousy captains who get upset about having a messy boat). In the end we caught a mixed bag of skipjack tuna, a small Ahi, Ono and Mahi Mahi.
Everything I hoped for. Job done!

“Incredible day on the water”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Hired Captain Lance for a private half day of fishing with my brother-in-law. The Captain and his deckhand were passionate about catching fish and entertaining to talk to. They knew where to go and the techniques to bring em in the boat. We were getting hits of good size Ahi tunas while the 3 boats around us seemed to just be hooking Jacks. We landed 3 of these before a porpoise came in to the area and the Captatin opted for other fishing grounds. Bam! what felt like 20 minutes later and the expert coaching of Captain Lance I had brought in a ~150 lb Yellowfin. Catch of a lifetime. We got enough tuna filets for our big family for the next 3 days. It was amazing and incredibly delicious. Thanks again Captain Lance!

“Great Trip!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Had a great time! Cought Mahi, Ono, small Ahi and three 80-100 lb Ahi! According to the Capt. Howard and the deck hand, to catch three in one trip is a dream! When all the other charters went north or south we stayed straight out in front of the harbor. The crew found the birds and found the fish! By the end of the trip all the other fishing vessels had come to our spot. We all cought something! Very experienced crew! Would use them again! Remember your sea sick pills!
