Our family had a great time fishing with Jeff & Randy. Both were very interactive & fun. We had a good day with 4 on at once (& landed them all) and 3 on another time. Would definitely do again, but next time want to go in the spring or summer and go for the big boys! Scott B.

I have fished with Captain J @ Deep Sea Fishing Kauai several times, and have had the best fishing experience every time. Captain J is certainly the most experienced charter fishing Captain offering deep sea fishing adventures on the South side of Kauai. No one will work harder to make your fishing experience memorable and successful. HIs knowledge of where... More

We saw such a mix of reviews we were hopeful - we should have listened. Our guys were excited to fish on Kauai - having all fished elsewhere with good luck. 4 adult men and two boys headed out on an early morning to fish. They were stunned to arrive and find that there really was not going to be... More

Captain Jay was rude, spent what little dialouge we had talking about all the fish he catches though we caught only one inedible fish, was unfriendly toward our kids, and overall unhelpful. The boat has a single chair on the deck and the windows in the cabin are kept sealed shut, he was irritated when we asked about just bottom... More

Owner at Deep Sea Fishing Kauai, responded to this review, Dec 31, 2016 Whoa Cowboy…. You got some explaining to do. How is it that I, Captain J, was down telling your child stories of big fish, honest leviathans of the sea, 200 plus pound tunas and 1000 pound Marlin, answering the tough questions of what can we catch and...

I have been offshore fishing and scuba diving many times and also own a boat in the Florida Keys. I am not a stranger to ocean boating. With all that being said, here is the good and the bad. The Good: The Big-Ta-Do is a 31 Bertram. It has been updated and, for a 35 or 40 year old boat,... More

Management response:

I hear this at times from folks in the Keys and the Inland Waters. Protected waters tend to soften the fortitude of the once determined angler. Thank you for taking notice of the hard work we put into the the boat and her tackle. The capabilities of the Big Ta Do far exceed the human condition. That said we are... More

We had a great time with captain Pat and Chris today. They were fun, talkative and informative. We even managed to score a 120 lb blue Marlin. I would recommend them to anyone looking to deep sea fish in Kauai (pending receipt of our smoked marlin 😉). Thanks guys, it was fun!

Great time with Capt. Jeff. I fish a lot and have run my own boat in California so I have experience to give the following review. The boat (Big Ta Do) is in great shape, fast and clean. The tackle is top shelf gear. We fished a 6 hour trip and we scored a nice Ono and a beast 200... More

We booked a charter for 3 people on the 4th of July. When we arrived, there were 2 other people waiting to go on the trip. So, we thought there would be 5 of us. Then 3 more people showed up saying they had a reservation. Capt J told them he could only take 6 people, so they left even... More

I do not recommend going out with these guys. I love fishing and grew up deep sea fishing so I have done all this. The crew was Randy and Justin. We went out in June of 2016. I went with my 13 yr old boy. I spent $420 for both of us. We meet at the boat and have 4... More

Had another great trip with Davie and Pat! Nobody works harder to put you on the fish. We have a 2 year 100% hookup and landing rate!! Everyone else came in empty handed today but we ate our Ono for lunch! Also caught the biggest Barracuda I have ever seen!! Our family recommends them without hesitation! Professional class act!!
