About the Captain

Thandiwe Fearon
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Member since February 2016

Capt. Thandiwe is an enthusiastic captain. He is fairly new to skippering, with a year and a half under his belt as boat captain, but is constantly getting tips and advice from some of the best local fishermen in and around Jamaica. What he loves about his work is that, although it takes a lot of preparation and maintenance work, he gets to help guests catch fish, and that, in his opinion, is a dream job.
