I am reviewing this place for my husband. We are both avid fishers and during our first trip to Hawaii discovered that I get really sea sick the day before during a night swim with Manta Rays. I ended up having to cancel my ticket and insisted Marvin go on without me on a shared charter. It was slow in... More

We chartered the Sea Wife II and had a nice day on the water. We did not catch fish, but we say lots of dolphins and pilot wales. The caption and deckhand were really nice guys.

Captain Kent and his crew are very professional. It is a shared charter, meaning that all take the fish home. This is the only charter that lets you do this. The boat is good size, room to move about. There is a special treat on board, must see. But remember not to take bananas on board. check this out, you... More

We had a great half day on Sea Wife II with Captain Kent and Deckhand Sawyer on April 29, 2016. After a safety orientation from Captain Kent, we were able to start trolling almost immediately after leaving the dock. Sawyer provided an explanation of what to expect and how to react to pulling in a catch. We had a bite... More

We were looking for a reasonable shared charter when we a brochure for Sea Wife II. The crew was great, the boat was clean and we had a great time. Sea Wife is one of the few charters that let you keep your catch. All others keep your catch and sell it for themselves. The boat rules are that all... More

We (3 of us) went on a private half day charter. Capt. Kent and deckhand Cobin were awesome. We caught spearfish. There boat is bigger and wider than the one we used in FL. This meant less rocking and sea sickness. Would recommend private charter. We only caught one fish which means if you are in a large group, you... More

Not one catch nor bite for anyone on the shared charter,nothing,nada. Surly uncommunicative captain and deckhand and no refreshments offered at all the whole... More

Large family group with adult children, teenagers and elementary age kids. Had a great time with Captain Kent and Sawyer!! Very accommodating, and fun! Made sure each person on the boat had an opportunity to catch a fish. Boat was clean and comfortable for the whole family. Can't wait to go out again!! Definitely recommend!!
