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

Our experience with Captain Don was one of the best we've had on the island. Highly recommend a fishing trip with him.

When I went, it was back in late June, so this review is overdue, but I had a great experience with Asher and Captain Don, himself. My dad, friend, and I had reserved a 3-quarter day trip but called it early since everyone got sick but me. Luckily, I was able to pull in 2 tuna and 2 mahi on... More

Our family has fished on no fewer than 20 charters around the world. At least half of them have been duds. Captain Don is a keeper. We will recommend him to all of our friends that venture to Kauai. He and his crew are personable, ethical, experienced, and know their stuff. Most important of all, Don places customer service #1.... More
