We went out with Craig on C.Hawk with our two kids, ages 8 and 10. We had a great time - we caught 4 yellowfin tuna, one apiece, and were back in the harbor by 11 AM, shorter trips being better with young kids. Craig was knowledgeable and helpful, the boat is clean and well-maintained, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Captain Craig really knows his stuff. The first day we caught fish mostly tuna. And on the second day we swam with about 75 wild dolphins who were so curious to swim all around us. I can't say thank you enough to Captain Craig it really was great. And he was so knowledgeable about great B just to go to

Craig is awesome. Always easy going. If the fish aren't cooperating, he will let you jump in and snorkel. He lets you keep what you want to eat. My go to captain.

We booked the morning private charter for my husbands bIrthday and had the most wonderful time! Captain Craig was super knowledgable about fish, boats, the ocean, and everything in between while staying true to Hawaiian fashion with being very laid back and fun to spend the day with. We had a lot of fish on the line but a pesky... More

My lack of experience with deep sea fishing did not hinder my success in catching fish. The Captains many years of fishing expertise and his innate ability to find the fish led up to a Great day on the water. The best part of it, I ate fresh caught Tuna for the rest of the week. I was able to... More

Every time we come to the Big Island, Craig takes us on a wonderful trip snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins. Thank you Craig for making our day wonderful. I'll never forget seeing the newborn dolphin.

This was a great experience! My family talks about it anytime the Big Island is mentioned. Captain Craig completely tailored the whole trip to what we wanted and I could not have asked for more. He got everyone who had an interest to catch fish. We got to swim with dolphins. Thank you. Aloha!
