Booked the Ahu Lani primarily for whale watching. The entire trip was beyond expectations, our whale encounter lasted about 40 minutes and it seemed they were as inquisitive about us as we were of them. They stayed within about 20 yards of the boat and several times either passed directly under or surfaced along side the boat. Cyrus promised a... More

Cyrus and his first mate Gabe are enthusiastic fisherman who create a fun vibe on a private charter. We were able to book last minute with them and so glad we did as it was my boyfriends birthday and after a few hours we caught a Marlin!!! What made this charter so amazing is how professional, excited and calm both... More

Captain Cyrus and crew are excellent guides, very educational and experienced! They aren't afraid to ask questions, address concerns and needs. They aren't like many captains (burnt out and un-engaging), they actually cater to what you would like to do. You can even fish half day and snorkel the other half. They provide all the gear and can take you... More

We had a great time on the Ahi Lani. Captain Cyrus, and his Crew were very accommodating with my 7 and 11 year old kids. I caught an nice Ono and my father inlaw and my wife both caught nice blue marlin 400 and 150 pounders. We had 6 total strikes with a double hookup when my wife caught her... More

We had a fantastic 3/4 day fishing trip with Captain Cyrus and Chris on the Ahi Lani. They were friendly and went out of their way to include and entertain our boys (8 and 11). They had fresh pineapple, drinks, snacks, and sandwiches. This was great since with other boats we've had to bring our own--which is a pain. Right... More

Just got off the tour and we talked about it all the way home. Capt. Cyrus and Carl were great guides, very friendly and made us feel comfortable right off the bat. From the first time I called til we walked off the pier, these guys were the greatest. My daughter landed a blue marlin in short order and that... More

We had an amazing day on the Ahi Lani with the Kona Sea Adventures team! My husband, our 16 year old and I booked the half day fish and snorkel tour and we had so much fun we ended up extending it to a full day. The snorkeling mid-day broke the trolling/fishing up just enough to keep from getting bored... More

Captain Cyrus was awesome! Worked very hard to get us fish even when they were not biting. Caught a nice a jack fin tuna🤗. Snorkeling was amazing water was the perfect temperature and the water was clear you could see 12 ft to ocean floor. Worth the price as he really cares that his customers have a great time. Would...

We were so happy with our charter. We were in good hands with Captain Cyrus and Gabe. Their knowledge of the Big Island, the boat and the water was helpful. We asked to go whale watching and to hopefully swim with a manta ray. They gave us so much more than that. They leisurely took us around to spot some... More

We would HIGHLY recommend Capt Cyrus and the fishing/snorkeling trip combo as the snorkeling really broke up the day of trolling. Cyrus is very competent and confident in operating his boat and getting lines in the water. We bagged 2 Ono and a small yellow fin tuna which provided a number of meals while we were on the Big Island... More
