What is your "Catch" Policy


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.




What is your Cancellation Policy & Restrictions?


If you give us notice more than 5 days before your scheduled trip, there is no charge for cancelling. Within 4 days, it is a 50% charge, and if you are a no show or cancel within 72 hours of your trip, it is full charge. In the event your Captain cancels the trip due to weather issues, there is no cancellation charge. Restrictions: If you have a medical condition , you will need to discuss this at the time of reservation so we can make sure we are able to accommodate you and insure you will enjoy your trip. No pregnancies, no recent surgeries, no children under the age of five. If you have a bad attitude, and no sense of humor, we don’t allow you on the boat. Please respect the boat, as your captain spends more time on the boat than he does at home. Please treat it like you are in his home. We provide an ice chest with bottled water and ice for our guests. there is plenty of room for you to keep your lunches/snacks if needed. No glass bottles or Styrofoam coolers will be allowed on board.




How big is the boat?


The Emma is a Bertram 38 Convertible III Sport fisher. At 17 tons and 41 ft LOA, she offers Bertram’s renown ride. A fly bridge 14 ft above the water with seating for six provides a panoramic view of the action and the beautiful coastline of Kauai. She also has a fully equipped indoor seating area and private bathroom. That may not sound like alot but you'll appreciate this small creature comfort on hot or rainy days and especially when nature calls.




What if I have medical issues, physical restrictions or limitations?


Fishing vessels do not offer stable footing while at sea. If you have ANY underlying medical issues, physical restrictions or limitations that affect your abilty to stand, walk or otherwise brace yourself while on the boat please contact Gina@GofishKauai.com before you book your trip.
