Member since February 2020
Captain Birt is an experienced captain who has been fishing for over 20 years, watching and being around fishermen for as long as he can remember. Since he is a local, he´ll be delighted to help you discover some of the best fishing places and secret spots where he´s also learnt to fish. He´s specialized in nearshore and calm backwater areas, sometimes also exploring the nearshore wrecks. He loves teaching families (especially kids!) how to fish and helping those who already have some experience improve. Since he´s fished his entire life, being a Captain and sharing the joy of fishing has always been on his bucket list, and now that he´s retired, he´s finally able to spend the entire day doing what he loves the most – having a blast on the water and making sure all guests – of all ages and levels of experience – get hooked on an adventure that lasts a lifetime.
