Meet the Captain

Captain John Gavin is the ultimate professional bluefin tuna fishing guide.  He has 25 years experience fishing for bluefin and has been a captain for twenty years.  He has caught countless giant bluefin tuna on rod and reel out of the gimble, in the fighting chair and using stand up gear.  He even caught one on a hand-line.  It was his first bluefin tuna ever and weighed a whopping 1235 pounds!!! Capt. John can find the fish, hook you up, guide you through your fight and then wire your fish alongside for that coveted ‘bragging photo’.

Capt. John’s wife and fishing partner Chandra will also accompany you.  She is a hostess in true Maritime fashion!  Not only does she make sure you’re well fed while at sea, she is also Capt. John’s mate so she’ll be right there beside you when you reel in the big one!  She can assist you with the other non-fishing details of your trip as well and has been known to throw together an authentic Maritime lobster boil on short notice too! When you fish with the Gavins you’re treated like family!!
