Kai Bear markets itself as one of the finest operations in all of Hawaii, and they believe the presentation of their product is the key to their business. Captain Mark Koehler has been fishing in Hawaii for over 20 years, many of which have been on the Kai Bear.  Mark is a very experienced Kauai fishermen who is both professional and safety conscious.

In addition to deep sea trolling and baiting methods, these well equipped boats will do bottom fishing upon request (private charters only), fly fishing, weddings, funerals, whale watching, and romantic sunset cruises which even include your first bottle of champagne.  They will also do serious overnight fishing trips to places such as Niihau, Nihoa, Kaula Rock, the Middle Bank, and Lehua Rock.  

Both Kai Bear and the Grander have Cummins 315HP twin diesel engines which provide a quiet, smoke free ride.  Both Kai Bear boats are currently equipped with custom built rods by Blue Water and Penn Gold Reels ranging in size from 30 class to 130 class.  They also carry light tackle spinning rods on board for special occasions.

As for the disposition of the fish, the captain and crew will cut table fish for all guests aboard the boat upon availability.
