This trip was exactly what I expected for the price. Serious fisherman will want to choose a pricier option. Great trip for families with young kids! Boat was clean and comfortable and the crew was patient and kind!

Fishing is hard to review, because you can't make a fish bite the hook. They strike when they want too! We went for 6 hours pretty hard and didn't catch anything big, so that was disappointing. I'm not sure when's the best time to fish Hawaii, but we didn't have much luck the 3rd week of June.

Do research on type of fishing/charters (trolling, jigging etc) Wear sunblock, hat, bring anti nausea meds if you need it. Don’t have high expectations don’t expect to catch fish. Have fun make memories,

Note that you are going for a chance at catching some large sport fish. But it’s a chance - not a guarantee. It’s a big ocean and there are lots of variables that constantly change so it’s very possible you won’t catch anything. But you may be lucky and land an incredible once in a lifetime catch!

Again, it is called fishing, not catching. These Captains and crews know the Hawaiian waters and how to catch these local fish, and will do their very best to put you on those fish. Remember, you aren't guaranteed to catch anything, amd remember, they are professionals at their jobs and doing their very best, so give them some slack if luck is bad.

Please always know that your captain and crew want to catch fish as badly as you. Sometimes they bite, sometimes they don't. If you catch fish, fantastic! If you dont, blame it on the fish. Those dudes and ladies know what they're doing and do everything possible to put you on fish. I've fished all over the world and it's about the experience. That's why we call it fishing and not catching!

Obviously no guarantees with fishing but I’ve been very happy with my hawaii fishing experiences and even if you don’t catch anything it’s gorgeous seeing the island from the water, especially at sunrise.

You are on an island. When you go out a few miles you are in the middle of the ocean. The oceans swells get a bit large and at a few points we couldn’t see the island hotels. The crew are professionals and do this for a living this is very normal to them. Please treat them with the respect they deserve. You are on their boat, using their gear. It doesn’t matter if you have 100$ in fishing equipment or 30,000$. At the end of the day you can’t make the fish bite. Was well worth the trip for us and we didn’t bring a fish home.

Bring sunblock! We did not and we definitely felt it the next day. Take pictures! It’s an experience you’ll want to look back on. And be patient! It’s still fishing. You never know when the big one is going to hit.

This was our first time fishing in Hawaii, so not sure seasonally how fishing changes. Our trip started out pretty slow but glad we booked the full day. All our fish came in the afternoon. Caught multiple Mahi-mahi.

Remember it is called 'fishing' and not 'catching'. No one can control the weather, or make the fish bite. I have fished for over 50 years, so perhaps I have a bit more realistic approach, and expectations. You won't catch fish everytime you go out. When you can, and if you have the time and money, book a full day trip. It increases your chances of having a great day. Half-day charters are hard as it limits the time you have, and you may not catch the tides right.

Follow the crews instructions to keep your bait close to the bottom while not getting snagged and pretty soon you should be catching and not just fishing. Everyone in our party of 3 caught fish and only one was an experienced fisher.

Know any fishing anywhere is subjected to luck. You need to plan on having a good time and be pleasantly surprised if you get a catch. You never know if you get one or not anywhere so take that into consideration.

Reeling in a marlin is a “bucket list” experience. If you’re looking to take home fish you should look for a boat that is targeting smaller fish. If you want to take your chances to catch the fish of a lifetime and look for Marlin then I highly recommend five star fishing.

Do it! It’s fishing. Not catching! But if you’re somewhat of a fisherman or outdoors person, you’d understand. Sometimes the fish has the better of you and sometimes you have the better of them. The important thing is to pay attention to the crew to see how they are changing up rigs and tactics to put you on fish!

Make sure the captain and crew are knowledgeable about what you are catching. There are a lot of endangered species or illegal to catch fish in hawaii so if not could get in some big trouble real fast

This is definitely a first time, small catch, family fun type of outing. Boat was great for a party of 4, unsure how it would be for more people. Please note, taking seasick meds with you is probably a good idea, even if you think you won't need them.

Take Dramamine and listen to the instructions from the captain and deck hand. Both are there to help

We were on the fish pretty much the whole time out, but didn’t catch anything too big or noteworthy. If you’re looking for dinner, you may want to book a deep sea outing.

Be prepared for waves and the rocking of the boat. Prepare beforehand by taking motion sickness meds

Cover up in order to protect from the sun. Wear dri-fit long sleeve shirts at the very least. Bring polarized sunglasses as well.

Do not charter an of shore experience. You'll end up a quarter mile away from shore with the same results as guided shore fishing experience.

As a fisherman I know fish aren't always caught. There are no guarantees when fishing. We caught our fish 2.5 hours into the trip thinking we would be shut out. So, be patient, enjoy the water.
