Do it! It’s fishing. Not catching! But if you’re somewhat of a fisherman or outdoors person, you’d understand. Sometimes the fish has the better of you and sometimes you have the better of them. The important thing is to pay attention to the crew to see how they are changing up rigs and tactics to put you on fish!

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.

Set your expectations. It's called fishing and not catching for a reason but the Captain and crew did their very best.

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.

Bring lots of money and take a marlin charter or fish from shore, like I see the locals doing.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!
