What can I say? Captain James and first mate Tobin know their fishing!!! Despite being a choppy day, we had a great time! My husband caught a 30 lb. Mahi and I caught a 118lb. Tuna! We got to take some Mahi with us and at Captain Jack's suggestion, we enjoyed it prepared at a local restaurant. Highly recommend. Beautiful... More

Captain James is awesome. His mate did everything to make out trip incredible. We barely left the harbor and had the first hit on the lines. We caught so many fish. Everyone had the thrill of a lifetime bringing a big one on board. Highly recommend if you want to have a great fishing day.

Had a great six hours with Captain James and his crewmate. This was our first time deep sea fishing and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We ended up catching one short nosed spearfish, aka a "hebi." It took a while to catch the fish, but it was a magical moment when we finally did. The yacht is... More

Captain James and his crew were fantastic. The boat is big and comfortable. My 15 year-old son also caught a 119 pound yellow fin tuna. We saw dozens of dolphins and a humpback whale. The day could not have been better. Even my 93 year old mom was comfortable and had a great time. Thanks again. We will be back

As repeat clients I would not look elsewhere for a better boat and crew. My wife, daughter, son in law and I caught several tuna, mahi mahi and sailfish with Captain James Dean on the Blue Hawaii. Props to Tobin for keeping all the lines wet and making the experience memorable. The boat was in top shape and the fishing... More

Went deep sea fishing off of Kona today with Captain James on Blue Hawaii along with my 3 sons (ages 10, 18 and 20) along with another Dad and his 10 year old son.....what an awesome time.
