  • Amazing

    Captain Will and Tom were nothing short of amazing. We booked an extremely last minute fishing charter. We met up at 0530 and left immediately. Will already had a lead on where to get to a good fishing spot, and as soon as we got there we snagged four Mahi Mahi and three tuna. The experience was a bucket list item for me and the crew didn’t fail to impress me. There’s literally nothing like catching a big fish right out of the ocean. I’m already planning my next trip here and want to do this again. I’m hooked and want to catch more!!!

  • Very Professional

    Great Charter! Captain Will and Tom were very professional. Great safety demo and procedural brief before we left port. They worked hard to keep us in the fish, which they did!

  • Memory of a Lifetime

  • Biggest Fish of my Life

    Had one of the most amazing days of my life what a fishing trip couldn’t have gone with a better crew or better boat. Mike was a great captain it was a little rough out there but he made it as comfortable as it could be also a really nice guy. Will was the deckhand never seen anyone work that hard to get things done on a boat unbelievable also a really nice guy these guys told stories, very knowledgeable about the area and what we were fishing for answered all our questions and were in great spirits all day they made an 8-hour trip feel like 2 but these guys also help me catch the biggest fish of my life they were the reason I caught this fish I couldn’t be more grateful I would recommend whipsaw fishing to any and everyone my 21-year-old daughter was with me and she also had an amazing day I went out knowing that when your fishing sometimes you get one and sometimes you don’t but either way I would have had an amazing day just being out there enjoying the water and having an amazing crew thanks Will and Mike when I come back you will be seeing me.

  • Best Hands Down!

    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 a great day on the deep blue.

  • Very Clean Cabin and Very Nice Crew

    I have been on a few charters before, but this one was exceptional. Very clean cabin and very nice crew. We came back with my first marlin with my father losing another which was roughly 120lb, despite this, the rest of the boats couldn’t get a bite. One of the best days of my life.

  • First Class

    This boat was so clean that surgical procedures could have been performed on the deck. As a germaphobic I can tell you that I never fail to carry and use hand sanitizer at every opportunity, but on this boat it was unnecessary. The 2 member team, Captain & Crew worked together like a well-oiled machine! At no time were they idle. They were personable, professional and worked hard the entire trip. And we caught fish!

  • A Great Crew

    I want to convey what a great crew we had today and yesterday.  They did a great job of explaining to the newbies how to haul  in a fish and were great all day.  I have been on some charters where the crew get a little up tight and not too friendly—just the opposite with these guys.  It was a great time, even though we got skunked—will recommend it to my friends when they come to Oahu.
