Catching fish is what it's all about! We were very fortunate to catch a 14 lb wahoo on the way out to the tuna grounds and then we caught 12 18-25 lb skipjack tuna! At this point Captain Scott asked if I wanted to go back in or head further out "hunting". We opted for hunting and it was the... More

I booked this charter with my family in mind. I wanted a safe trip, friendly and knowledgable guides, and some fish to eat. I also did not want my kids exposed to coarse behaviors or language, which sometimes occurs on fishing trips. Thus, I booked a private four hour trip with Lahela. Captain Scott had safety in mind and made... More

Captain Scott and David were great host for our family fishing adventure. They worked very hard at finding fish (big and small) including our 210 lb yellow fin catch of a lifetime. Both were easy to talk with, patient with all of our questions, and really good with the kids. The boat was exceptionally maintained and comfortable for our group... More

Last summer we went fishing with Captain Scott on the Lahela Sportfishing boat in Kauai. It was a great experience for the whole family. Captain Scott and his crew David were very knowledgeable and professional. Before booking, I researched the different fishing companies and found them to be the only sportfishing boat that is a Coast Guard Certified Charter boat.... More

Our family had a wonderful time deep sea fishing. We caught 14 4-5 lb tuna and a 24 lb yellow fin tuna. On the way out we saw several whales and on the way back to the harbor, we were amazed at the whale that came up very close to the fishing boat --- totally breathtaking! The experience was superb,...

I am not a morning person and David was able to bring some energy in the morning by greeting us at the dock making sure we knew what was going on as we left the harbor. This is a professional operation in my opinion the Captain does a good job at what he is supposed to be doing which is... More

“Capt. Scott is Excellent best fishing trip” After a good safety briefing, we ventured out on the Lahela a nice 34ft boat.We booked a 6 hour trip under Capt. Scotts advise and I’m glad we did. It was about an hour boat ride to a buoy but once we got there the fishing begun. Our family caught a lot of... More
