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.

Use a reputable charter and pay attention to the captain. It definitely paid off for my family.

I picked a trip that would be good for first timeers...kids. I was completely satisfied with the whole trip.

Fishing anywhere is unpredictable; fish don’t bite, aren’t there, the weather is crappy, the water is turbulent, etc. The experience is worth it.

Can't say we got false advertising for deep sea fishing but did not get deep sea fishing instead we got a boat ride and some sailing.

Take a shorter trip before jumping in big. This trip would be good for kids greater than 12

Do your homework and understand the season availability of the species you are targeting.

Relax and enjoy the day. Fishing is fishing. Some days are great and some are not.

2 hour trip is reasonable price to get out on water and catch reef fish.... big stuff you wanna go half day at least.

Go with the attitude of fishing, instead of catching. If you catch something that is a plus.

Maybe not be the first trip out for the day. That or book for longer than just 2 hours.

keep your fishing expectations to a minimum. The boat experience was good however.

It is deep sea fishing, so it can be rough out there. Beautiful area to fish in!
