Captain Paul Fafeita has been fishing for half of a century – he knows all the tricks of the local fish and where the best-hidden spots are. Combine that with his 15 years of experience guiding customers and you've got the recipe for a true master guiding you! He got his love for angling from his dad and granddad – after that moment he never stopped fishing. Kids are more than welcome on board with Capt. Paul and he loves getting young anglers hooked on fishing.
