     "Captain Kai and First Mate Joe were awesome. My 11 year old son hooked a 182 lb. blue marlin (the purpose of the charter) as well as a large pompano and a big eye tuna. These guys know where to take you. Super nice, efficient and great at what they do!"          - Swann V.D. (fished aboard the Waiopai)

        "Great time on the Waiopai! Captain Kai Hoover, hats off to you sir!! Great catches and good times. Smooth riding and beautiful sights from the top fly bridge. Lots of room for our large group and fabulous service from the ever so courteous deck hands. Well done. I will definitely be calling upon you guys for our next event. Thanks"                -  Clareese K.

        "Kai and Jonah were awesome!"                   - Chris (fished aboard the Waiopai)

        "My Family and I went out on the Waiopai for my brothers 25th birthday and had such an amazing time. The crew welcomed us and treated us like family...even when I decided to “feed the fish.” We were sunburned and tired but that was because we were too busy reeling in the fish. Thank you Capt Bob’s Charters for making it happen. We will definitely book again! 🤙🏽               - Maile A.

       "Just wanted to thank the crew, captain Kai and Joe, these guys went above and beyond to make it a great trip. They worked hard to get us on the fish, and to stay on them. There experience on the water was so valuable to us catching. We ending up with a great mixed bag, Wahoo, Mahi, shortbilled spearfish and Tuna!!! I highly recommended boat Capt and crew, to anyone looking to catch and have a great day. I will be taking my family again in a few days!!! (Aboard the Waiopai)"                       - Martin C.
