Remember it's "fishing" not guaranteed "catching" so make sure you go with folks who give you a good chance and a great trip. I would fish with Capt. Joe and Brett any day of the week and I've been fishing around 58 years! We caught one nice Ono, but they fished hard our whole trip. The Fire Hatt Hatteras is... More

We had a great time. The weather was perfect, the boat was clean, well stocked and comfortable. The crew was wonderful -- fun and very knowledgeable. Lots of interesting conversation and laughs! The fishing was slow but we did catch a 6' short nosed spearfish (picture attached). We would definitely book with Fire Hatt next time we are in Hawaii.... More

Great fishing trip with the Firehatt. We are from Michigan and I was finally able to get to introduce my girlfriend Kimmy to big game saltwater fishing. We only caught one fish short nosed spearfish but it might as well been a grander. She LOVED it. GREAT boat even better crew. THANKS GUYS WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN!!!

Great day fishing with Captain Joe and John! Excellent conditions and a very professional crew. Technical instruction from John landed us a Marlin 20 minutes into our charter! Wow! Also caught Mahi-Mahi! Enjoyed sight-seeing and entertaining fish stories. Saw pods of pilot whales and even had a swordfish take a nibble (but, alas we did not land it). Clean, well-run... More

We went fishing with the crew at Fire Hatt. Very professional crew. We caught one Yellowfin Tuna on our trip. We had to cut the trip short due to 2 of the 3 of us were sea sick. They Fire Hatt guys were very understanding and only charged us for the time we were out. We knew that it was... More

We were on the Big Island for our daughter's wedding in June. During the week of this event, we had some time to book a fishing adventure on the Fire Hatt with Captain Joe and "Best Mate" Brett. I honestly was looking to just catch some little fish (Mahi-Mahi or Dorado) and much to my excitement as Brett was giving... More

Well we didn't catch anything on our full day fishing trip BUT we had a great time. Joe and Brett were awesome, the conversation didn't stop once. The boat is very nice, clean and fridge was stocked. If we are ever back, we will for sure be booking with them again. Highly recommend them for your fishing trip!!!

We have been on several private charters before but, I have to say that this one was one of the best! We loved every minute of it. The boat was beautiful, well equipped and very clean. The Captain...

We had a great time today. Top notch crew top notch boat couldn't have asked for more. The crew worked their buts off and it paid of with a Big Yellow Fine. Joe and Brett were awesome and made my 7 and 9 year old girls feel right at home. Can't wait to come back for more fishing. Mahalo see... More
