Being that Kauai is a tiny island in the Pacific we do not have the luxury of trucking or flying in fresh fish to support our local restaurants, bars & hotels. Instead they rely on us (local commercial fisherman) to provide them with fresh fish on a daily basis so visitors like yourself can enjoy "fresh fish" while dining out on the island.
One Fish up to 50 lbs. may be cut, packaged and shared among the guests on board to enjoy a couple meals while here on island . The fish that will be cut is at your Captain's discretion. The majority of large fish caught are sold to local restaurants and market immediately. ( proceeds from these sales are how we are able to provide our guests with the best tackle and gear available.) Larger fish have a very short shelf life; refrigeration for only 3 days. Freezing fish is just not an option, as the fish will never be the same. With other charter companies having an average 25lb policy, we are one of the most generous companies on the island when it comes to sharing our catch for you to enjoy on vacation.
Due to theDept. of Health and Airline restrictions, We do not process or ship fish off island.
