I have told anyone who is headed to Hawaii about you, your crew, and your boat and how your expertise helped me fulfill a life long dream. You see I am a paraplegic and never thought I would be able to do something like this and had resigned myself to watching my son, wife and friend fish.
Can you please thank Carl for recommending us to Kona Honu Dive for the Manta Ray experience.
We went last night and were delighted by 9 Manta’s. The crew and boat were great.
I just wanted to say thank you for the great time we had on the water. You and your brother are true professionals with a level of enthusiasm I didn’t expect from people who are so experienced. We didn’t get into as many fish as I’d hoped, but that’s fishing. We would’ve completely missed the Humpback whales had you not spotted them. For my kids, that was a highlight of the day. The striped marlin was my highlight. Rosa’s Canteen & Grill did a great job on the marlin I caught. The atmosphere in Rosa’s is very welcoming.
I look forward to seeing the photo you took. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a fishing charter.
You guys rock! What a ride we had. That’s the kind of fishing dreams are made of! We will treasure the experience forever and look forward to hangin with you again in the near future. All I can say is Wow! We are sore. RJ, we love ya. I can only assume your butt was kicked as well… Much love, hope to see you guys soon.
Thanks again for the fantastic fishing charter. All the best to you and I hope we go fishing again sometime in the future.
Mahalo nui for the great day of fishing yesterday on the “Hooked Up”. A special thank you also to mate, Rocky. kona fishingWe had a lot of fun catching a variety of fish. We hope to be back to fish with you again. I will let my friends know who to call when they are looking for a great day on Kona’s fishing grounds!
Thanks for a great fishing trip. Thank Billy as well. You were both great company, and for a change, I had a bit of luck on a charter. The fish was delicious, and we finished it all off.
I spent several hours on the internet searching for a charter service. I found your charter prices for the size of your boat to be “the best deal in town”.
Little did I know that we would be eating several meals of fresh Tuna. But the highlight of the full day charter was the 8’7″ Blue Stripped Marlin that I caught. What a thrill that was!
Once again, I would like thank you and your staff for the great time on the waters of Kona.
Chuck, I wanted to make sure you knew that my family and I enjoyed ourselves last Saturday. It was a slow day for sure but Jim and RJ persevered and managed to hook into a sizable Mahi Mahi. Coincidentally, the charter that the Hilton recommended, was sniffing around our stern after the hook up!
After that I definitely knew we made the right choice. If you’d like me to give you a good review on your website or Yelp just let me know.
We had a GREAT time, and the fish story is making the rounds and expanding as we speak. Thanks for everything!
