Captain Paul found his love of fishing as a boy, fishing with his uncle and grandfather. He  has spent his entire life fishing the waters from Maine to Virginia. He is a Master Maine Guide and received his Master Captain's license in 1995, so you can be sure of a safe and fun charter experience! Paul has been living here in the Kennebunks since 1991 and began doing charters in 2000. He is knowledgeable about the ocean, marine science/biology and the local ecosystem. His life partner, Jen, is an elementary teacher and began helping on charters last summer. Jen also obtained her non-commercial lobster license and hauls her own traps on the Elaina Marie as well!  His first mate, his son Sean, has been fishing with his dad/captain since he was 10 years old- continuing the legacy started so many years ago.  He enjoys spending every summer with him out on the water assisting with charters and pulling lobster traps! He too is very knowledgeable and enjoys interacting with charter customers.
