My husband and I went out on a 4 hour trip with Sea Wife 2 Charters. The staff is excellent. We didn't catch anything but Bailey the first mate made it a memorable time! He was so fun, telling stories, the entire group was laughing and we made some friends! I would book with them again!!! great time guys!

The Captain and staff are excellent and entertaining. Unfortunately, none of us caught fish on our half-day tour. However, it was a fun boat ride on a beautiful ocean.

What a terrible place to deal with, They cancelled our trip 20 minutes before it was set to leave. Never mind that we just drove 35 minutes to go on the trip. They offered the ole " the boat broke down" excuse and after running trucking companies for 30 years I cant remember how many times I used that one.... More

My husband and son so wanted to catch a fish while in Hawaii! Luck being what it is...that was not in the cards today. The boat was nice, the crew was super nice but the fish were not so nice and stayed far away...not even a bite! We are leaving tomorrow so we can't even try again. So, it turned... More

You know what? This was totally what I was expecting and even more! We went fishing with Captain Kent and one of his revolving deckhands but we were lucky to get an appearance by a deckhand that used to work there that we have fished with. Every time we go out we catch something but this time we didn't. Oh... More

I am reviewing this place for my husband. We are both avid fishers and during our first trip to Hawaii discovered that I get really sea sick the day before during a night swim with Manta Rays. I ended up having to cancel my ticket and insisted Marvin go on without me on a shared charter. It was slow in... More

We chartered the Sea Wife II and had a nice day on the water. We did not catch fish, but we say lots of dolphins and pilot wales. The caption and deckhand were really nice guys.

Captain Kent and his crew are very professional. It is a shared charter, meaning that all take the fish home. This is the only charter that lets you do this. The boat is good size, room to move about. There is a special treat on board, must see. But remember not to take bananas on board. check this out, you... More

We had a great half day on Sea Wife II with Captain Kent and Deckhand Sawyer on April 29, 2016. After a safety orientation from Captain Kent, we were able to start trolling almost immediately after leaving the dock. Sawyer provided an explanation of what to expect and how to react to pulling in a catch. We had a bite... More
