“Loved captain J and Jeff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Great time and very much as advertised. J and Jeff were great with my 9 year old son and fun to hang with. They even followed up with us after the trip with video of the Marlin we released. Would recommend to anyone who wants to fish Kauai.

“Captian J knows what he is doing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

We went out today an right off the bat caught a few mahi mahi an hour later we got to the fishing grounds and and began Reeling in some 8 to 10 pounders. It was my first time deep sea fishing and they had me going pretty quick I had a really large one on the line but fought it too hard and it broke free. Listening will improve your success. These guys are consistent in what they do. The trips leave from Port Allen not Kapaa.

“Top Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

We booked 2 private charters, a 4 hr and an 8 hr 2 days later, had the best time even though fishing was slow, we ant out with captain Bill and deckhand Andy both days and these guys were definitely pros, got us on fish when the other charters were coming back empty handed, 1st day we got a beautiful 40 lb bull Mahi Mahi, second day we landed another Mahi Mahi and 3 skipjack tuna. As for the negative reviews, ignore them, these people obviously don't know sport fishing. We used both of Captain J's boats and they are both well kept, not brand new but well looked after and clean, thanks to Bill and Andy for the great 2 days fishing

“Knowledgeable Crew and Fair Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

My family and I (group of 5) went out on one of their boats with Captain Rob and Deckhand Jeff for a 6-hour trip. What a success! We do fish a lot on the mainland and understand that we might not have caught anything, but to be on a boat in beautiful Kauai... that's a memory we will never forgot!

We got lucky, though! We caught 3 Mahi Mathis and one Wahoo. We did catch some small yellow fin, but you gotta throw those guys back so they get big later. We caught the Wahoo quickly on our trip, followed by quiet, and finished with a bang when the captain spotted a large log. The lines wouldn't stop, and it was crazy! What fun, though!

The crew was very knowledgeable about fishing in the area, and Jeff kept us informed as to the plan throughout the trip so we stayed informed. The crew was friendly and definitely knew what they were doing. If you're planning a trip to Kauai and enjoy fishing, you've gotta fish with these guys! Again, even if you don't catch anything, you will have a beautiful view of the island!
