Just remember it is fishing. You take a chance on not catching anything. But you get a great time on the water.

It was a good trip (more for adults). Would’ve liked to have the kids throw some lines in the water but difficult to do when trolling. Great experience when hooking a marlin and seeing it fly out of the water!

Yes! We went out twice, on two half day trips. The first trip we didn't even get a bite but that is fishing! Sometimes you don't. The boys really wanted to try again so we booked a second half day trip and both boys each caught a fish. So fun but know you have to be patient!

The family had a special experience the Ohana Crew, catching (1) Ono (7) Mahi and a 120 lb. Ahi. It was an awesome day out on the water, that my family will cherish in their hearts forever. I would highly recommend this charter, the entire staff is so friendly and accommodating especially the owner of the Ohana, Valerie thank you for all the snacks. Mahalo Nui Loa, Bruce Heidenfeldt

Capt Adam and deckhand Michael worked hard to get us on the fish but it just wasn't our day. They were friendly and made the trip pleasurable. They were so kind that they even had some Ono from the day before that they offered. We had a great experience. Cheers, Dave

Had a great time fishing with crew of the Ohana. My son in law cought his first Marlin on the trip. Crew was very knowledgeable and friendly and worked hard at putting us on the fish. My good friend just couldn’t bring it home. 😂

This was the best experience in Hawaii. The captain and crew were so amazing. I caught a huge Ono and a my wife and I traveled around the island for the next few days and ate fresh fish for lunch and dinner. It was the best tasting fish.

Overall it was a good day, even though we never caught one fish. The first mate was very friendly giving up some information on the local sites. Captain Mark was also very nice not much interaction with him of course (he was driving the boat).

Capt and crew were great. Only reason the experience wasn’t five stars is because the fish weren’t biting. Nothing anyone can do about that especially when you go for big game fish. Some days are like that. Seas were good. Crew was great

Great value for what you get!! Not only you get to see the beauty of the Pacific Ocean, but you also learn a lot about fishing. During our trip my husband and I caught an Ono. After the trip Capt. Mark filleted it for us. We ended up leaving with priceless memories and tons of fish!
