Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

The captain and deckhand on the Whipsaw gave me my best deep sea fishing trip yet. the crew is highly knowledgeable and knew how to bring the fish in the boat. They also were very sociable and made me feel comfortable. A productive day catching 6 mahi mahi, and 1 small tuna. A definite 5 star rating, thanks

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

Captain Will is great at the helm! Very safe and skilled. Will also knows how to catch fish! His crew are very fish savvy and skilled on deck handling the rods like pro’s. This crew is young, enthusiastic, and super respectful and friendly.
Oh! Yes! This boat finds fish. 4 clients caught 8 tuna, 1 Marlin and one spearfish.

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

I would highly recommend Whipsaw sportfishing… My 14 year old son and i went out with Will and Tom and caught a couple mahi mahi and sharks… But the day was slow overall and the guys had to really work for the bites. I appreciated the professionalism and passion for their craft. It was obvious that they were doing everything they could to put us on fish. Slow days on the water are what separates good crews from the ok crews. These guys stayed upbeat and positive the entire time and made us feel very welcome, Ive done a few charters in multiple locations and these guys were the best by far.

Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!

Captain Will and deckhand Tom were laser focused on finding and catching fish. The passion and excitement that came out of them during this entire full day trip made it that much more enjoyable for myself and my 20 year old daughter for who I booked this trip for. They helped cheer and motivate my daughter to stay in the chair to eventually after an hour and a half bring in this 635lb blue marlin. The fish was tagged to be released but unfortunately they were not able to revive the fish.

Went out on a 4 hour afternoon private charter with Whipsaw Sportfishing and was very happy with the crew and the accomodations. Captain Will and Tom were very well prepared for our journey. Within the first hour we had a Yellow Fin Tuna in the boat. By the second hour we landed a Mahi Mahi. Captain Will and Tom were very accomodating to all our needs and put us on some fish. He even cleaned our catch for us. We didnt know this wasnt the norm since everywhere we have fished in the past, this was a given. We found out later that most Captains in Hawaii keep the catch for themselves. We did have a bit of a challenge finding a restuarant to cook them for us, so be sure to plan for a cookout on the beach if you do keep your catch. These guys were awesome. Definitely recommend and will use again next time in Oahu. Thank you Captain Will and Tom for a fun afternoon on the water. It was the highlight of our trip.

Much thanks to Skipper Mike and Crew, Bob.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

The captain and deckhand on the Whipsaw gave me my best deep sea fishing trip yet. the crew is highly knowledgeable and knew how to bring the fish in the boat. They also were very sociable and made me feel comfortable. A productive day catching 6 mahi mahi, and 1 small tuna. A definite 5 star rating, thanks

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

I appreciated the professionalism and passion for their craft. It was obvious that they were doing everything they could to put us on fish.

Will and Tom, Hands down, 110% best charter I’ve ever been on. 3 for 3 on blue marlin (release the one that we could safely release). If you don’t understand what 3for3 on blue marlin means, then You need to Fish more. Can’t pay for an experience like Will and Tom produce. I run a small fishing boat out of San Diego, and been on 20+ Sportfishing charters and these dudes are by far the best out there. Only boat I’ll recommending Oahu.

Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!

Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

The captain and deckhand on the Whipsaw gave me my best deep sea fishing trip yet. the crew is highly knowledgeable and knew how to bring the fish in the boat. They also were very sociable and made me feel comfortable. A productive day catching 6 mahi mahi, and 1 small tuna. A definite 5 star rating, thanks

I have been on many game charters around the world, Cabo San Lucas, Vanuatu, Fiji, Rarotonga, Carins, NZ and I have to say Whipsaw would be the best hands down! Right from stepping on the boat, Captain Will gave the best boat safety briefing I have seen, then Brenden, the 1st mate gave a straight up session of the do’s and dont’s when hooking up in the chair. We landed a 459lb Blue, huge thanks to Capt Will, Brenden and Tom for great day on the deep blue.

Will and his crew (Thomas & Nate) did a fantastic job showing us a great time while making sure everyone stayed safe. They were very professional but just as enthusiastic as we were when we hooked into fish. It was a great day catching a bunch of fish! Couldn’t believe I got to land a spearfish!

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen.

I would highly recommend Whipsaw sportfishing… My 14 year old son and i went out with Will and Tom and caught a couple mahi mahi and sharks… But the day was slow overall and the guys had to really work for the bites. I appreciated the professionalism and passion for their craft. It was obvious that they were doing everything they could to put us on fish. Slow days on the water are what separates good crews from the ok crews. These guys stayed upbeat and positive the entire time and made us feel very welcome, Ive done a few charters in multiple locations and these guys were the best by far.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

The captain and deckhand on the Whipsaw gave me my best deep sea fishing trip yet. the crew is highly knowledgeable and knew how to bring the fish in the boat. They also were very sociable and made me feel comfortable. A productive day catching 6 mahi mahi, and 1 small tuna. A definite 5 star rating, thanks

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Captain Will and Tom were absolutely amazing! Not only was the boat clean, had AC and a bathroom but the crew was so hardworking. My husband and I were down for his 30th birthday and had no luck on a previous charter so these guys saved the day and took it upon themselves to make sure he caught a fish. We caught 3 huge fish! My husband caught a 68 in 34 lb short billed spearfish. I caught a 48 in 18lb mahi mahi. The other gentleman with us caught a 62in 31lb mahi mahi. They cleaned and brine the fish for us and even gave us a recipe for poke. We also saw other sea life including humpback whales and huge sea turtle that hang out at the dock. We will definitely come back and fish with these guys again! Say hi to sushi the dog if you see him at the dock! Mahalo !

Went out on a 4 hour afternoon private charter with Whipsaw Sportfishing and was very happy with the crew and the accomodations. Captain Will and Tom were very well prepared for our journey. Within the first hour we had a Yellow Fin Tuna in the boat. By the second hour we landed a Mahi Mahi. Captain Will and Tom were very accomodating to all our needs and put us on some fish. He even cleaned our catch for us. We didnt know this wasnt the norm since everywhere we have fished in the past, this was a given. We found out later that most Captains in Hawaii keep the catch for themselves. We did have a bit of a challenge finding a restuarant to cook them for us, so be sure to plan for a cookout on the beach if you do keep your catch. These guys were awesome. Definitely recommend and will use again next time in Oahu. Thank you Captain Will and Tom for a fun afternoon on the water. It was the highlight of our trip.

Will and Tom, Hands down, 110% best charter I’ve ever been on. 3 for 3 on blue marlin (release the one that we could safely release). If you don’t understand what 3for3 on blue marlin means, then You need to Fish more. Can’t pay for an experience like Will and Tom produce. I run a small fishing boat out of San Diego, and been on 20+ Sportfishing charters and these dudes are by far the best out there. Only boat I’ll recommending Oahu.

I would highly recommend Whipsaw sportfishing… My 14 year old son and i went out with Will and Tom and caught a couple mahi mahi and sharks… But the day was slow overall and the guys had to really work for the bites. I appreciated the professionalism and passion for their craft. It was obvious that they were doing everything they could to put us on fish. Slow days on the water are what separates good crews from the ok crews. These guys stayed upbeat and positive the entire time and made us feel very welcome, Ive done a few charters in multiple locations and these guys were the best by far.

Whether you are a sportfishing enthusiast or it’s your first time, Whipsaw is the best charter boat on Oahu, HANDS DOWN. We went out with Tom and Captain Will and they were fantastic. You can tell within the first few minutes of meeting the crew that they know their stuff. Will had a game plan before we even left the dock and he was spot on. We caught two BIG Marlin and got to take home as much Marlin as we could possibly eat. We ended up giving some fish friends too. The whole evolution is so much fun, even if it’s not your turn to be in the chair. You will not be disappointed.

Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew!

Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!

Will and his crew (Thomas & Nate) did a fantastic job showing us a great time while making sure everyone stayed safe. They were very professional but just as enthusiastic as we were when we hooked into fish. It was a great day catching a bunch of fish! Couldn’t believe I got to land a spearfish!

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

What a trip! We saw humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles at the dock, and caught a mackerel and a 20 lb skipjack tuna.

Captain Will was in command and he had a clean 35’ Cabo flybridge. The deck hand was Thomas, and they worked well together.

You will not see western Hawai’i like you will from the sea, you’ll be amazed at its beauty. See pics.

The seas can be rough, so if you get seasick easily I wouldn’t go. It was 3-hours of rocking heading back. We loved it though — a true adventure vs laying on a beach reading damn book.

At the end Captain Will sliced up the tuna and offered us to take w us. Make sure you feed the sea turtles and dog “Sushi” hanging out waiting for scraps!

PS: bring your own drinks, including alcohol. None are supplied by the boat. We would have given anything to crack open a cold beer on the trek back!

Went out on a 4 hour afternoon private charter with Whipsaw Sportfishing and was very happy with the crew and the accomodations. Captain Will and Tom were very well prepared for our journey. Within the first hour we had a Yellow Fin Tuna in the boat. By the second hour we landed a Mahi Mahi. Captain Will and Tom were very accomodating to all our needs and put us on some fish. He even cleaned our catch for us. We didnt know this wasnt the norm since everywhere we have fished in the past, this was a given. We found out later that most Captains in Hawaii keep the catch for themselves. We did have a bit of a challenge finding a restuarant to cook them for us, so be sure to plan for a cookout on the beach if you do keep your catch. These guys were awesome. Definitely recommend and will use again next time in Oahu. Thank you Captain Will and Tom for a fun afternoon on the water. It was the highlight of our trip.

The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

Captain Will and Tom were absolutely amazing! Not only was the boat clean, had AC and a bathroom but the crew was so hardworking. My husband and I were down for his 30th birthday and had no luck on a previous charter so these guys saved the day and took it upon themselves to make sure he caught a fish. We caught 3 huge fish! My husband caught a 68 in 34 lb short billed spearfish. I caught a 48 in 18lb mahi mahi. The other gentleman with us caught a 62in 31lb mahi mahi. They cleaned and brine the fish for us and even gave us a recipe for poke. We also saw other sea life including humpback whales and huge sea turtle that hang out at the dock. We will definitely come back and fish with these guys again! Say hi to sushi the dog if you see him at the dock! Mahalo !

Will and Tom, Hands down, 110% best charter I’ve ever been on. 3 for 3 on blue marlin (release the one that we could safely release). If you don’t understand what 3for3 on blue marlin means, then You need to Fish more. Can’t pay for an experience like Will and Tom produce. I run a small fishing boat out of San Diego, and been on 20+ Sportfishing charters and these dudes are by far the best out there. Only boat I’ll recommending Oahu.

Whether you are a sportfishing enthusiast or it’s your first time, Whipsaw is the best charter boat on Oahu, HANDS DOWN. We went out with Tom and Captain Will and they were fantastic. You can tell within the first few minutes of meeting the crew that they know their stuff. Will had a game plan before we even left the dock and he was spot on. We caught two BIG Marlin and got to take home as much Marlin as we could possibly eat. We ended up giving some fish friends too. The whole evolution is so much fun, even if it’s not your turn to be in the chair. You will not be disappointed.

Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!

Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

First time on an offshore charter and what a great day.
Much thanks to Skipper Mike and Crew, Bob.
9 Ono & 2 Wahi Wahi and everybody caught fish.
Certainly good value and we will do this again on our next trip.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

Will and his crew (Thomas & Nate) did a fantastic job showing us a great time while making sure everyone stayed safe. They were very professional but just as enthusiastic as we were when we hooked into fish. It was a great day catching a bunch of fish! Couldn’t believe I got to land a spearfish!

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

Crazy awesome day of fishing with Mr. Duffey. Caught more fish than expected and had fun along the way. Staff worked hard, changing lures and putting us on fish. Resulted in multiple big tuna, not like the smaller charters produce, big ones.

What a trip! We saw humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles at the dock, and caught a mackerel and a 20 lb skipjack tuna.

Captain Will was in command and he had a clean 35’ Cabo flybridge. The deck hand was Thomas, and they worked well together.

You will not see western Hawai’i like you will from the sea, you’ll be amazed at its beauty. See pics.

The seas can be rough, so if you get seasick easily I wouldn’t go. It was 3-hours of rocking heading back. We loved it though — a true adventure vs laying on a beach reading damn book.

At the end Captain Will sliced up the tuna and offered us to take w us. Make sure you feed the sea turtles and dog “Sushi” hanging out waiting for scraps!

PS: bring your own drinks, including alcohol. None are supplied by the boat. We would have given anything to crack open a cold beer on the trek back!

Will and his crew (Thomas & Nate) did a fantastic job showing us a great time while making sure everyone stayed safe. They were very professional but just as enthusiastic as we were when we hooked into fish. It was a great day catching a bunch of fish! Couldn’t believe I got to land a spearfish!

Went out on a 4 hour afternoon private charter with Whipsaw Sportfishing and was very happy with the crew and the accomodations. Captain Will and Tom were very well prepared for our journey. Within the first hour we had a Yellow Fin Tuna in the boat. By the second hour we landed a Mahi Mahi. Captain Will and Tom were very accomodating to all our needs and put us on some fish. He even cleaned our catch for us. We didnt know this wasnt the norm since everywhere we have fished in the past, this was a given. We found out later that most Captains in Hawaii keep the catch for themselves. We did have a bit of a challenge finding a restuarant to cook them for us, so be sure to plan for a cookout on the beach if you do keep your catch. These guys were awesome. Definitely recommend and will use again next time in Oahu. Thank you Captain Will and Tom for a fun afternoon on the water. It was the highlight of our trip.

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Captain Will and Tom were absolutely amazing! Not only was the boat clean, had AC and a bathroom but the crew was so hardworking. My husband and I were down for his 30th birthday and had no luck on a previous charter so these guys saved the day and took it upon themselves to make sure he caught a fish. We caught 3 huge fish! My husband caught a 68 in 34 lb short billed spearfish. I caught a 48 in 18lb mahi mahi. The other gentleman with us caught a 62in 31lb mahi mahi. They cleaned and brine the fish for us and even gave us a recipe for poke. We also saw other sea life including humpback whales and huge sea turtle that hang out at the dock. We will definitely come back and fish with these guys again! Say hi to sushi the dog if you see him at the dock! Mahalo !

Whether you are a sportfishing enthusiast or it’s your first time, Whipsaw is the best charter boat on Oahu, HANDS DOWN. We went out with Tom and Captain Will and they were fantastic. You can tell within the first few minutes of meeting the crew that they know their stuff. Will had a game plan before we even left the dock and he was spot on. We caught two BIG Marlin and got to take home as much Marlin as we could possibly eat. We ended up giving some fish friends too. The whole evolution is so much fun, even if it’s not your turn to be in the chair. You will not be disappointed.

Will and Tom, Hands down, 110% best charter I’ve ever been on. 3 for 3 on blue marlin (release the one that we could safely release). If you don’t understand what 3for3 on blue marlin means, then You need to Fish more. Can’t pay for an experience like Will and Tom produce. I run a small fishing boat out of San Diego, and been on 20+ Sportfishing charters and these dudes are by far the best out there. Only boat I’ll recommending Oahu.

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

Fished on Whipsaw on Oct 28, 2020. Captain Will and Tom were great. I fish on a lot of charters all over the world—This boat is extremely well set up with the best tackle and safety gear available. We cruised about 15 miles offshore and found floating FAD debris (looked like a telephone pole floating vertically). Wife and I landed double Mahi Mahi on the first pass. We pulled a dozen or so small YellowFin Tuna and another Mahi. Also bridled a couple of the Tuna (love baited with them) and had huge hits—lost both of them though. We released several tuna for another day, then headed home. Very comfy cabin with cold AC, coffee, microwave, etc.

Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!

Will and his crew (Thomas & Nate) did a fantastic job showing us a great time while making sure everyone stayed safe. They were very professional but just as enthusiastic as we were when we hooked into fish. It was a great day catching a bunch of fish! Couldn’t believe I got to land a spearfish!

Captain James came through! I had friends visiting from the mainland and booked the Whipsaw because they have one of the best catch rates for Honolulu charter boats. Captain James gave a safety orientation and then we were underway. 1st mate Nate gave an awesome fishing orientation that included info for the novice & experienced fisherman. The trend for the week we went was that most boats weren’t catching so I prepared my mainland friends for possibly a long boat ride. However Captain James brought us into one of the largest aku piles I had ever seen. Along with four other boats, we worked the pile but unfortunately they weren’t biting but what an amazing site to get to witness. Even if we didn’t hook up, I was already satisfied. Over the course of the day we had two knockdowns, one of which was marlin and 1st mate Nate aggressively reeled and free spooled to see if the marlin would give us a second chance to hook up but it just didn’t happen. Towards the end of the day we decided to run the 40 fathom ledge heading back to dock to see if we could catch an ono. Much to our surprise we ended up hooking up and landing a 20 pound yellowfin tuna. A very happy ending for a full day of fishing. The crew cleaned the fish so there was sashimi for everyone. I have been on many charter boats but in all my years, the Whipsaw is one of the nicest boats with a very hospitable crew. I booked their boat two other times and fished with Captain Will & 1st mate Tom and they as well are true professionals. On top of it all, the air conditioned cabin is a nice treat to beat the heat. I will definitely book the Whipsaw in the future.

What a WONDERFUL experience. Captain Will and Tom made our morning trip exactly what we were hoping for.
Calm atmosphere while being personable, educational and enjoying some laughs. We had a few bites but ended our day catching a good sized Ono which made our day!!

I will say Will and Tom went above and beyond- we discussed fishing traditions, life stories, points of interest for our vacation as well as different ways to cook/eat our catch!

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

Best day of fishing on the island..captain Mike and first mate Sean are an amazing crew! The ship was pristine, and we caught Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin Tuna, Hawaiian Salmon (Rainbow Runner) and Ono (wahoo)…highly recommend! They greeted us in the morning bright and early, the boat was clean and the crew were friendly. Despite the ocean being choppy, they made sure that we got out to the Penguin Banks west of Molikai to catch some great fish. The crew were friendly, fun and knew where to find the catch, although my parents were here visiting me and I may not have gone deep sea fishing otherwise, I had so much fun I am going to plan on going again and with this crew! They were able to schedule us with only a days notice for a full day trip. I really can’t say enough good things about them. First Mate Sean filleted all the fish after the trip perfectly and we brought home tons of fish and the boat kept half as well. Really amazing day! amazing crew! If you are looking for the best service, clean ship and fun experience then Whipsaw is definitely for you!

What a trip! We saw humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles at the dock, and caught a mackerel and a 20 lb skipjack tuna.

Captain Will was in command and he had a clean 35’ Cabo flybridge. The deck hand was Thomas, and they worked well together.

You will not see western Hawai’i like you will from the sea, you’ll be amazed at its beauty. See pics.

The seas can be rough, so if you get seasick easily I wouldn’t go. It was 3-hours of rocking heading back. We loved it though — a true adventure vs laying on a beach reading damn book.

At the end Captain Will sliced up the tuna and offered us to take w us. Make sure you feed the sea turtles and dog “Sushi” hanging out waiting for scraps!

PS: bring your own drinks, including alcohol. None are supplied by the boat. We would have given anything to crack open a cold beer on the trek back!

Went out on a 4 hour afternoon private charter with Whipsaw Sportfishing and was very happy with the crew and the accomodations. Captain Will and Tom were very well prepared for our journey. Within the first hour we had a Yellow Fin Tuna in the boat. By the second hour we landed a Mahi Mahi. Captain Will and Tom were very accomodating to all our needs and put us on some fish. He even cleaned our catch for us. We didnt know this wasnt the norm since everywhere we have fished in the past, this was a given. We found out later that most Captains in Hawaii keep the catch for themselves. We did have a bit of a challenge finding a restuarant to cook them for us, so be sure to plan for a cookout on the beach if you do keep your catch. These guys were awesome. Definitely recommend and will use again next time in Oahu. Thank you Captain Will and Tom for a fun afternoon on the water. It was the highlight of our trip.

Captain Will and Tom were absolutely amazing! Not only was the boat clean, had AC and a bathroom but the crew was so hardworking. My husband and I were down for his 30th birthday and had no luck on a previous charter so these guys saved the day and took it upon themselves to make sure he caught a fish. We caught 3 huge fish! My husband caught a 68 in 34 lb short billed spearfish. I caught a 48 in 18lb mahi mahi. The other gentleman with us caught a 62in 31lb mahi mahi. They cleaned and brine the fish for us and even gave us a recipe for poke. We also saw other sea life including humpback whales and huge sea turtle that hang out at the dock. We will definitely come back and fish with these guys again! Say hi to sushi the dog if you see him at the dock! Mahalo !

Will and Tom, Hands down, 110% best charter I’ve ever been on. 3 for 3 on blue marlin (release the one that we could safely release). If you don’t understand what 3for3 on blue marlin means, then You need to Fish more. Can’t pay for an experience like Will and Tom produce. I run a small fishing boat out of San Diego, and been on 20+ Sportfishing charters and these dudes are by far the best out there. Only boat I’ll recommending Oahu.

I believe they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our charter experience as well as leaving with a fond, memorable experience.

10/10 would recommend to friends/family/ strangers they were just that great.

Will & Tom are an awesome team- if you’re lucky enough to book them, then you’re very lucky indeed.

Mahalo!

Most fun catching a bull Mahi mahi ever! Very informative and knowledgeable about the ocean and fish!

We had a fantastic time, the weather was picture perfect. Sean and Micheal were great and the striped marly was a blast landing.

First time on an offshore charter and what a great day.
Much thanks to Skipper Mike and Crew, Bob.
9 Ono & 2 Wahi Wahi and everybody caught fish.
Certainly good value and we will do this again on our next trip.
