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!

Captain and mate were very experienced and talented fishermen. We caught 7 nice mahi and a spearfish. They fished hard from the dock to the grounds and back. The boat was the best cared for I have ever been on in a charter. I would recommend communicating with the captain prior to fishing so you understand his plan.

Captain Lance and Jack were awesome! We had a slow start, but on the way back my son hooked a Blue Marlin and Jack coached him the entire time and Lance gave great encouragement and after 25 minutes he got the 200# Marlin reeled boat side for a great picture. Thanks for a great morning! Kansas

Went out for a 4 hour trip, after a few unsuccessful passes through a bird patch and a bouy the captain knew where to go to score some Aku. We got 4 on and pulled in 3, all good size. Poke for days, yum yum.

This was our Second day deep sea fishing this trip. First trip was with another charter. They were pretty good but seemed more like they were there to get paid than to help us catch fish. Not todays crew!! They went out of their way to help us catch fish, two of which were on the way back in after a full day. Captain Lance and Jack are top notch fisherman!! No hesitation recommending these guys!!

Booked with this boat because Jim was the only captain to respond with an itenerary suitable for a six year old. They did not disappoint, trip was all about making a six year old the focal point Caught a bunch of tuna his size and some sharks we released These guys were great! I will book them again

This boat, the captain, and mate were well equipped for the trip, in store. We fully enjoyed the 6 hours and the waters surrounding Kona. Sadly we did not hook up, not the fault of the boat, just nature. This is the only reason not to score full points for the trip. This is fishing, not catching. We’ve all been there. That said, my group took away positive memories and, if we decide to return to Kona to fish, will give Captain Jim on the Kona Dice, a crack at it.

We went on a 3/4 day trip with two kids aged 10 and 13. Capt. Lance and Jack were knowledgeable, friendly, and great conversationalists. We had cake, fruit, and drinks provided on the boat. Jack showed us how to sit in the chair and kept the kids engaged. The boat was a great size and there was plenty of shade. The waters were quiet and we only had one bite, but this is how is goes sometimes and regardless we had a good trip.

While we saw no action, just like all the other boats out that day, Joe and Wes made the experience very encouraging and positive. The boat was extremely comfortable, and the crew looked after our every need. Thank you Fire Hatt, and we’ll see you again next time we’re in Kona! Allen M., San Francisco

Capt. Jay was damn awesome. We went out early and within 2 hrs we were hooked up. Took 2 hours 30 minutes to land and Capt. Jay was more then willing to be patient and help where he could without taking over.

Crew was awesome and put us on the fish. Unfortunately, there were dolphins at the spot we spent time going out to which killed the chance of catching anything. Charter was a fair price and would recommend for anyone wanted a charter out of Kona.

We had a great time with captain Mike and Wes. While we didn't get a marlin to bite, we were able to catch an ono and a skipjack - which my son really enjoyed! They are very experienced and will do all they can to make sure you have a great day.
