I am the owner of Deep Sea and I love to fish, surf, and dive. I started working on charter boats at nine years old scrubbing the boat and cutting bait for free trips. Deep Sea is the third boat that I have owned and operated out of Haleiwa. I am a very involved owner and captain. I have worked for a few of the other charter boats here in my fifteen years of learning to fish the north shore. I have a good grasp of what a professional operation should look like and how it should be run. I am constantly trying to make little changes to our gear and to the general set up of the boat to make operations more efficient. I am always learning from our customers and I am committed to making fishing as safe and fun as it can be.
Kyle is an experienced North Shore fisherman and captain. He also spent years as a north shore city and county life guard. Kyle continues to work water safety for the world pro tour surf events here on the north shore as well. He always has safety in mind as well as the desire to catch big fish. Kyle is a full time fisherman and continues to produce big fish every year. He has a go for it attitude while still maintaining a healthy respect for the ocean. He also owns and operates his own boat which is powered by the same Caterpillar 3208 engine as we have in Deep Sea. He knows the boat well and is very familiar with the engine we are running. Kyle also grew up fishing here on the North Shore which makes him an asset when the conditions get rough.
Kevin is an experienced fisherman, diver, and very mechanically inclined. He is in his element when he is far out to sea. Kevin has worked on fishing boats for most of his life. He also operated a commercial fishing boat out of Haleiwa for many years before he started charter fishing. He loves to fish and lives to fish. Kevin has excellent vision and state of the art binoculars that are a great recipe for finding fish. He is a live bait specialist and excels at landing big fish on the lighter gear. Kevin takes pride in his ability as a fisherman and is always asking for the best equipment we can get for the boat.
