Nine of us went fishing in 2 boats. Nobody caught a fish. The 1st hour we trolled with artificial bait. Nothing. The 2nd hour one of the crew fished for live bait. Caught 1 mackerel. So the next 2 hours, 4 of us watched 1 pole for a hit. Nothing. I never touched a fishing pole that day.

Feb 20, 2013 a beautiful sunny day, I went out on the Anxious with Capt Jeff, his mate Brian, and 3 other hopefuls . Four outrigged lines were set up and distributed among us and the center chair was allotted on an hourly rotation. In the first hour of the charter we saw dolphins swimming along side us. Just as one of them jumped into the air the #3 rod hooked on to something. Yeeha it was mine, and I settled into my first ever deep sea fishing battle. Helpful advice from Brian and 35 minutes later they gaffed the yellowfin tuna into the boat. The captain decided to keep the fish and when they weighed it back at the dock it was 128 lbs cleaned. I’m sure wherever it ended up it must have been really tasty. Too bad I was on a cruise ship and so couldn’t keep it myself! Unfortunately for the others it ended up being the only fish caught during that charter. I guess I was very lucky! Thanks to Bob from Long Island for taking pictures and a video with my camera during this amazing experience.
So I am basically writing this review for the ladies who dont fish. Send your men out on this fishing trip, then enjoy the easy on your own, safe , walking great shopping here at pier in Kona. Take the free tender off ship, walk in any direction and wonderful safe shopping. My husband did do this fishing trip. He said it was nice, but sadly no one on 3 ships even got a nibble. To me as a non -fisher it seems like alot to pay for no catches. But again a day of shopping on my own was worth it!

My son and I fish all the time in Texas and always have fun. This is awful. 3 boats went out and no fish. You just drive around smelling diesel fumes, get rocked until you feel bad, expensive and loud. Little action. 1/2 the people slept. BUT, it was better than the trip we went on the next day in Kauai. Still no fish, diesel fumes, expensive, but this time the waves were 6-7 ft. My whole family got sick and my wife even threw up. My son said it best. "dad, I can't even think of something worse". Both captains were very nice and not their fault, but it is what it is. Beware!!!
My wife had encouraged me to take this "fishing trip of a lifetime." It was literally just a boat ride. I must not have gotten the mates on the other reviews, because mine was a totally different experience. The boat was not set up for anyone to get on or off easily (in fact, one of the ladies fell getting in). They did provide an upside down bucket for a step when we returned. We saw no fish (which they couldn't help), there was no water, etc. on board, and it was a total waste of money and time.
