Went out with Captain Howard and deckhand E'Kene (sp). We left after 6 am and ended up turning the boat around to pick up the other party who was over 1/2 hour late. They later spent quite a bit of the 6 hours "feeding the fish". Didn't really like that, but I get it. Caught skipjack tuna right off the... More

I had a fishing charter have to cancel on me due to bad weather at 9pm on Easter Sunday. I called Ohana and they actually picked up and had room for my party on a day later in the week. Captain Lance and crew were excellent. They put us on the fish and kept us on the fish all day.... More

My lure was 2 inches long.was told that marlin will come 30 miles per hour to hit it. We fish for copies here in Minnesota with that size lure. I would never go again with this charter.

Aloha Joe, I am not certain I understand your review completely but did you want a Marlin? If so customers always let us know & I always reply that if ya want to hunt Marlin you must lock into at least 6 hrs & Private the boat. Not everyone on a share boat wants to target Marlins. As for the... More

Capt. Lance and Kalani (deckhand) did a great job on our trip Monday am (4/10/17). I love getting away first thing in the morning, was by myself, with one other singe and two couples. We all had a great trip, a triple hookup, and a quad! Four fish on at once is a blast! We were fishing just a few... More

Lance and Chance shared local knowledge and stories with our group as we searched for fish off the shores of Nawiliwili. We had a good time in spite of a bit of rain.

We took our 9 and 11 year old kids out for a 4-hr trip and hauling in 2 Mahi Mahi was a definite highlight! The guys on the boat made it very easy for us newbies and now our son has added fishing to his list of must-do's anytime in Hawaii. Booking, meeting the boat, etc...all very easy. Great job... More

I took my dad on a fishing trip during our family's weeklong vacation in Kauai for spring break. My sister found Ohana online and they had great reviews on TripAdvisor so I booked with them. Was very glad I did. Both Cynthia and Lance were super responsive and helpful with booking the reservation. There was a slight mix up with... More

Aloha, Well Mr. Howard does it again! Spring is here and it seems like the fish are too, well more than ever. Fishing can change daily but we've been getting lucky. Like I always admit half skill & half luck. Probably more skill with us since we have some old salty dogs. Hum, over 40 or over 40 yrs on... More
