Captain Andy
Andy has been addicted to fishing since he was in diapers.  In grade school, when asked what he wanted to be when he grew up his chosen profession was fishing guide. Andy recently spent three seasons as a professional whale watching guide and although he loved it, it didn't allow for the opportunity to fish as much as he would have liked.  With the missed fish haunting him, when an opportunity came about to attain a charter, he jumped at the chance, allowing him to take people fishing as well as do wildlife tours.  Andy is a USCG Master Captain, is a certified Naturalist, and holds a Batchelors Degree in Environmental Education from Huxley College at Western Washington University.  With his education, skill set and experience, he strives to provide you with the best charter experience in the San Juans.

You may have the opportunity to talk with Mell over the phone as most of her efforts are behind the scenes, but make no mistake, she is the driving foce behind the company, keeping the business and Captain moving forward and running smoothly.  Although most of her efforts are in the logistics, when opportunity permits she does like to jump on board as a deck hand, particularly on wildlife and photography tours. 


Our little trooper!  Enthusiastic and energetic, she likes to help however she can.  She really wants to work on the winter trips so she can "hand out hot cocoa".  Some of you may get to fish with ling jigs that she has meticulously hand painted.

​SJI Fishing Boat

Our boat is a 2017 Hewescraft Ocean Pro 240.  This model has a fully enclosed cabin and seating for all to travel to the fishing grounds or to get out of inclement weather as well as a spacious stern deck for all clientele to fight fish comfortably.  Powered by a Yamaha Vmax SHO 250, we can travel to fishing spots with comfort and speed.  The boat is also equipped with Scotty high speed digital downriggers as well as the latest HDS touch screen electronics from Lowrance.   
At times you will work with a different Captain and deckhand.  These Captain and crew are heavily vetted and experienced to ensure that you get the best excursion possible.
