What do our customers say?

"....Which brings me to the most important thing I want to say which is "THANK YOU." I have little doubt that, had I not found your website, I would not have gone big game fishing while in Hawaii (especially after seeing the boat that the hotel offered-yech!). That would have been the biggest missed opportunity in my fishing life."
                     Bill from Pennsylvania

"Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our charter.  We had an absolutely wonderful time..the ocean was perfect, our captain was so keen on finding fish and the first mate really worked hard.  (I felt guilty just sitting there being a passenger.)  Thanks again.  We certainly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks"
                    Laura & Pete  

".....For your comments page, I'd like to say sometime to the people who are reading this and are not sure whether to charter a boat and fish - DO IT !, you never know when you'll have the opportunity again. Mike and Kathy made sure that everything was organized perfectly for me before I arrived - not even the slightest glitch with the organization or anything else. Do your research, find a boat / skipper you like the sound of and you'll have one of the most memorable days of your life; I did !

And what do our peers say?

"Mike House is very active in the sport fishing business in Hawaii and I believe he actually goes fishing on a charter boat before he adds it to his page and gives it his seal of approval. You may put complete trust in him....."

      "Go Fish" weekly KGU radio fishing show

"Without question Mike's reputation is stellar. Mike is very active in the sportfishing community in Hawaii and draws upon charter boats that reflect both of our commitments to customer satisfaction and an understanding of our precious resources."
