No fish, though that is not necessarily the crews fault. The Captain was unfriendly, no inter-action for the whole trip. Also, no music, nothing to do but sit in a hot, stuffy, noisy cabin. The Captain should invest in a good fish finder. Very disappointing...More

It was the biggest scam in Hawaii, we spent around 225$ for a 4 hour boat ride. You will never get to touch a fishing rod, we didnt get a single bite. They are targeting huge fish with huge bait and the captain never stopped...More

I was fortunate enough to hop aboard the sea wife on my trip to Hawaii… They made it memorable when we hooked up on a big Marlin! They were thorough and attentive and Bailey was a great deckhand! If I am ever back on that...More

I didn't know what to expect, but was happily surprised with a nice boat ride, and towards the end the fun of watching a young man ( about 12 years old) land a 26 pound spearfish. The captain worked hard to find fish for us,...More

No fish, but captain and crew were great. Had lots of stories and kept us entertained. Still an amazing way to spend the morning.
