Captain & Crew

Hawaiian Captain & Crew

Upon arrival at the boat dock you will be greeted by your Captain and your Crewman. Our licensed Captains have all the necessary knowledge, experience, and judgment required to provide you with an action packed fishing trip that meets and exceeds the United States Coast Guard standards of safety and comfort. You will find no finer sportfishing crew in Hawaii.There are several things that separate this crew from other charter boats in Hawaii. One is our passion for trying “new” fishing tricks that are gleaned from constant research all over the world. There are Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Wahoo in all of the world’s oceans. But fishing techniques differ greatly from place to place. Our captains and crew are always trying to figure out how to adapt new techniques to make them work on our boats and for our guests. The second factor that discriminates this crew from all others is our captains information network. If there has been a fish caught across the state from Kauai all the way to the Big Island of Hawaii, we know about it! Our team works very closely with the close-knit Hawaiian recreational and commercial fishing community to put more fish in the boat and more smiles on our angler’s faces. The third trait that distinguishes our crew is their emphasis on fishing productivity. Have you seen our photo galleries? These guys CATCH FISH! Our crew has consistently outperformed all others in Haleiwa and throughout Hawaii in finding and landing more fish for their angler guests. There is nothing quite as effective in placing a smile on their guests’ faces and having a memorable day as catching a lot of quality game fish. The proof is in the high number of return customers year after year seeking another once-in-a-lifetime experience! Whether it’s rigging up “something new”, staring through high powered binoculars for hours on end, calling other hot boats for fish reports or just good old fashioned fisherman’s “gut feelings” , it’s all a part of the daily routine. These guys work very hard for you and they are proud about what they do! Check out the Catch of the Day page. Since the year 2000, we have taken lots of pictures!  Be sure to “Like” our Facebook too, we post to it daily!
