About the Captain

Santos Novelo
San Miguel De Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico
Santos Novelo left school at the age of 15 to follow in his father's footsteps and pursue his dream of working on the water. Working with his father for a few years, he's now spent over 45 years fishing and, today, operates as the first mate on Elai Fishing Charter. The captain has 25 years of experience on the water and agrees with Santos that you should "fish as if it was the last day of your life, because you never know if you'll be back.''
