Aloha, I really appreciate the positive feedback! I just love that your daughter caught something bigger than herself! She fought like a champ too! It was a great pleasure having you all aboard, and we hope to see you again !

Not impressed with Kai bear.... not because we didn't catch anything but more due to the lack of communication and basically no personality nor interaction of the crew. We've been fishing off Maui with the same outfit for about 12 years and always have a...More

We booked a 6 hour charter after reading the reviews here. The boat was in good condition but is pretty stripped down to its bones and is purely a fishing platform, don't expect much more as some reviewers seem to expect. It's not a luxury...More
