Ben Horrick

Ben is new to the team and joins as a Skipper.  He brings a great deal of experience and has a passion for fishing and the water.  You are going to enjoy being on the water with him.

 

James Bawden (Skipper)

James’ passion for being on the water has driven him to progress up through the ranks and we are now thrilled to acknowledge his new title of Skipper.  James took on further study through the Maritime Academy and successfully completed his Coxswain certification.  We were already thrilled with the way James worked the deck for us so this new role and his vast experience on the water as a Deckhand, recreational fishing and a stint on a long line boat  makes him invaluable to our charter operations. He is great with people and will help teach you the art of fishing if you need it.

 

 Ian Haley

Although Ian is new to us, he is definitely not new on the water.  Ian has had years of experience on boats as a deckhand and with recreational fishing.  Ian joined us recently as a Deckhand however he soon expressed a desire to also step up so he joined James recently and also successfully completed his Coxswain certification at the Academy.  We are really excited with what the future holds for Ian at Glenelg Fishing Charters and Reel Action Charters.
