I grew up around fishing in Mexico and Southern California, and when I found the big fish and calm water in Kona it was just natural to make it home!

We met at the dock and walked right on the boat which was geared up and ready to go. The mate was ready on standby to help my teenage boys and my 80 year old father board the boat. The crew was very knowledgeable, helpful and experienced in the type of fish we were after. With the help of the crew, we successfully hooked all four species targeted even though the dolphin was in off season.

Super clean boat with a good captain and deckhand.  We got great weather but didn’t get a bite.  Bummer but not the crews fault.  We trolled alongside all the other boats just had some bad luck.  Would recommend this boat and would use them for future trips.
