We had a great Whale watching trip with them. They put us on a bunch of great photo opps. If you don’t want to be crowded and have ruined pictures from 150 people being on your boat, consider a charter with these guys!

Went out fishing and had a great time. Nice boat. Top of the line equipment. Only thing was we didn't get a bite all day and no fish. Had we of caught something it would've been 5-stars for sure.

We went as a last minute trip and had a blast. Steve and Jamison were awesome and fun! We didn't catch anything but had a lot of fun. I highly recommend it. If you go tell Steve that Kelly says "Hi". ;)

The absolute WORST experience we have ever had fishing, but really, it was a nice pleasure cruise at the shoreline of Lanai (in shallow water). We did a private charter, and were continuously insulted by tales of how the fish we were after, including marlin,...More
