When deciding what boat would be best for the Kauai conditions Captain Lance had only one boat in mind. The Ho’o Maika’i is a 30×10 foot Wilson built in Santa Barbara for the rough waters of the Santa Barbara Channel Islands. This boat rides like no other boat in the Kauai fishing fleet.
The most important thing to the Captain is the safety of his guests. Of almost equal importance is the comfort of each person on the trip. The Ho’o Maika’i is one of the most stable boats on island, making it not only a safe boat, but one that rides better in the water.
Powered with two diesel motors and 400 horse power she is safe, stable, and clean. She is also equipped with up-to-date electronics and top of the line fishing gear. Her maintenance record is impeccable, which becomes readily apparent when you see how clean and well-kept she is.
The seating on this boat is arranged so that our guests get a more personal experience with Captain Lance and the techniques he uses in catching fish. The feeling is intimate enough to carry on an easy conversation with Captain, but roomy enough to allow for a sense of space and comfort.
Ho’o Maika’i translates to thanksgiving in the English language. We at ‘Ohana Fishing Charters are truly thankful for the blessings this boat has brought us and our clients.
