Ray Chittenden,

Owner & Guide

 In 2008, Ray started his career as a professional fishing guide. It was a significant change in his lifestyle but it was a job he had always dreamed of doing. Since he was young he had that passion and energy to fish as often as possible. From his granddad’s knee to today operating ocean-going charter boats, fishing has always been what he loves to do. Whether it’s rainy or sunny, windy or flat calm, the ocean is his happy place and he still is passionate about what he gets to do every day. Watching a guest catching their first ocean fish and the smiles that brings him great pleasure.

In the off-season, he owns and runs a successful consulting business, has raised a family and has done the domestic lifestyle. He prides himself on being kind and generous. He enjoys's the challenges of being a leader and company owner.
