    We went out with Captain Robert and Captain Lyle on a 4 hour deep sea fishing trip and started catching fish with in the first 30 minutes. First came a20 lb. short nose spear fish immediately followed by a 120 lb. Ahi tuna, and then a 30lb. Skipjack tuna, all within the first 2 hours. We saw dolphins in the wild and sea turtles. The boat is beautifully kept, clean, and well equipped. Captain Robert handles everything for you right on the boat at the end of your adventure from filleting the catch to take with you, to fully arranging your trophy mounts. Don’t go anywhere else, Camelot is the best. BEST DAY EVER!

    The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful! It was my son’s wish to catch a blue marlin or another big fish on this trip and they made his wish come true. Each of my kids caught a fish and yes a blue marlin! It was a great day we will never forget. I highly recommend Camelot Sport Fishing.

    My husband and nephew and niece had a blast fishing with Camelot Fishing charters. All three of them caught a fish, and the captain (Lael) and crew (uncle Walter) cleaned the fish for us to cook up that night! Great experience on the coast of Kona!

    8 hour trip for my family (including grandfather and children) went absolutely perfect for us thanks to the guys at Camelot charters. Lincoln (captain) and Makai (deckhand) met us promptly at the dock and we were on our way. We fished our way out to captain cook reef so we could take a break and do some snorkeling. Makai was super generous with information about history and culture of Hawaii. He essentially helped us plan out several days of our weeklong trip with must do/must see activities from the Hawaiian perspective. Lincoln was super chill and had great stories of the fish and fishing from his 40+ years of working on fishing boats around Hawaii. Snorkeling experience was fantastic….were able to get hosed off with fresh water on the boat, and had our lunch. After that we asked if we could change gears and target Ono, as we were looking for some fish to eat for our stay. They were super eager to do this for us by changing lures/tactics and taking a shallower trolling pass for the afternoon. We ended up with 2 Ono which they cleaned and bagged for us, this has allowed us to save a lot of money rather than eating out by eating our own delicious fresh fish. 3 meals and counting. Boat was super clean, very professional, and I feel like we really got just as good an experience as we could’ve ever hoped for. Thanks so much to Camelot charters for making this memory for our 3 generations of family.

    Camelot Sport fishing was the best experience I’ve ever had on a charter. Captain Robert and his son Christopher not only know what they are doing but they made it feel like home. I have a lot of years fishing and today took the cake. Comfortable, welcoming and they worked hard for us.
