If you are looking to go deep sea fishing I would highly recommend booking through Captain Don's. Lance and Matt were prompt, extremely knowledgeable, and very friendly. I doubt you can go fishing with two better gents on the island. When we come back to Kauai we will go fishing with Captain Don's crew again.

Captain Don and crew were great. He knew where the fish were and put us on them. While I lost the tuna I hooked, others landed several skip-jac tuna and the catch was shared at the end. Had a great time and would definitely book again. This is for serious fisherman - no frills.

I took two of my boys (ages 10 & 12) on a 3/4 day trip. Captain Don and Asher were, knowledgeable, fun, professional and laid back. I've been on a few other sport fish trips and this one was by far the best. The genuine customer service makes all the difference! We could have gone the whole day without catching... More

My friend took her family fishing with Captain Don summer 2016 and had an amazing time! I booked a 3/4 day trip for a day in November and we were really looking forward to it. I called the day before for confirmation and unfortunately the water was going to be very rough--7 ish foot waves and gusty wind. Captain Don... More

After reading a review on Trip Advisor the other day I decided to book a half day with Captain Dons Sportfishing. The review was about a trip with Lantz and Asher. We too were lucky enough to have them as our guides. These two young men could not have been more polite, and knowledgeable. They immediately had me convinced we... More

We had a great trip! Caught Opelu, papio, kahala and Ono. It was the best trip ever! Captain Don turned the reins over to Lance Davis, and he did a super job! Ashley was his first mate and we stayed in the fish for 6 full hours. Best fishing trip ever! Pretty nice to have a sore shoulder from cranking... More

We went out on a half-day trip with Lantz and Asher this morning. They put us right on the fish and we hauled in a real nice marlin right away and then another nice mahi mahi not long after. Both guys had a good sense for where the fish would be and did a great job helping us land them.... More

This is an absurd concept to me. Why would I pay to go fishing when the captain sells the catch. Just terrible.

Knowledgeable of all species around Kauai with a passion to fish and serve. Lance and Asher are decades ahead of the competition. We caught a very large Mahi Mahi based on their guide experience and tenacity . Not every day maybe as successful as ours, but that's fishing. Reasonable price compared to others and are generous with portions of fish... More
