About the Captain

Erling Klemens
Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal
Member since May 2016
The proximity with the sea and the interests in Marine life made me to search for a skipper certification 9 years ago. Once I had the Local Skipper certification, I started working in a Whale and Dolphin watching skipping a 30" glass bottom boat. Two years later I had the opportunity to join the fisherman community becoming First deck mate in a local sport fishing company. After 2 months I was the Captain of a fishing vessel (Pacemaker 31") and I was in charge of all the fishing activity. In 2012 I bought my first fishing boat to start my sport fishing company that continued developing the main activity until today.
