I started fishing with my father as a little boy and continued as a captain after graduating from the University of San Diego in 1990. In 1997, the first Purple Jet arrived and we have been putting smiles on customers faces ever since! The Queen Mary Open Party Fishing boat became part of the fleet in 2011.
