Was disappointed in this trip. Mostly because of johns smoking. This was a thousand dollar fishing trip. My family chartered the boat for four hours. I have a son with asthma and a daughter with allergies. For this amount of money would have expected a smoke free environment. Kamal, was fantastic. He worked hard and tried to be very enthusiastic... More

Our group took the 8 hour charter with John and Kamal, it was a great experience! They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Overall we caught 4 large fish (2 mahi mahi, 2 ono/wahoo) and got to take some home afterwards to eat for dinner. Completely made the trip. The boat was pretty awesome too, lots of space. Highly recommend.

Chose 1/2 day private charter, which I would recommend if able. Captains made us feel welcome, safe, and though can't guarantee that we'd catch fish, certainly tried their best to make sure we didn't go home empty handed. Need to bring own food / drink, which wasn't a big deal. Boat was plenty big, and plenty of places to hang... More

Having been a charter captain myself, there are two important factors when choosing the right boat: The type of boat and the captain(s) that run it. My wife and I took an 8 hour charter while in Maui and I was thoroughly impressed with Cpts Kevin and John. They knew the waters well and worked together greatly to fish as... More

I had a great time on the Rascal with my two boys. Captain Kevin and John were great with my kids and very personable. We just did a 4 hour trip, but we all three caught tuna. Time well spent. It would be nice if they offered bottled water or sodas for the price, but that isn't their deal. It... More

I caught very first marlin with them, i had a absolute blast with the captain and the crew. My wife and I will definitely be using them again.

My husband chartered a full day for our Grandson' s 18th birthday. Our Grandson also graduated from high school and he's going into the military this month. My husband wanted the best chance for a big fish & a great memory! Captain John was excited that the weather condition allowed us to go to places that he is normally not... More

Two of my sons and I chartered Rascal for a 4 hour fishing trip. The boat is very well maintained and the captain and mate knowledgeable of the fishing in the area. They did high speed trolling with artificial bait so we had 7-8 lines in the water at all times. We caught a nice Ono (Wahoo) and they gave... More

Rascal did an amazing job on our two full day charters. Capt. John and Capt. Kevin both got us on the fish when other boats were getting skunked. The deckhand Kamal flat out hustled. Many times we had two or three poles run and hooked fish. We landed all hooked fish with none getting off. We get a total of... More

My wife and I went with Capt. Kevin and his first mate John who have over 30 years of experience. They were very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions about the boat, fishing and the area. Kevin looks for the best areas given the conditions and John makes sure all lines are in the water and ready for any fish... More
