Mark began working on boats at the age of 12 in Redondo Beach, Calif., and was the youngest in his class to receive his 100-ton captain's license at the age of 19. He worked another six years in the waters of the Santa Monica Bay, operating commercial fishing and charter boats, whale watching boats, and tour boats. In 1986, Mark began working as a charter boat operator for Waterfall Resort on Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska. He worked for Waterfall Resort for the next four summers while also earning a bachelor's degree in business from California State University-Long Beach. In 1993, Mark arrived in Yakutat and began a five-year stint working for the Yakutat Lodge. Mark got the charter boat effort at the lodge off the ground and developed it into a four-boat operation. Mark then chose to leave the security of the lodge and make his dream a reality.

Frequently Asked Questions: What to bring when you're on the ocean Although the boats are geared up with most all the fishing gear you are going to need, unless of course you hook the bottom with one of my favorite lures. Here is a list of items you might find helpful on your trip on the water: • A good start is to bring a smile • A camera • Waterproof footwear • Waders or some other form of raingear. (You probably will want to check a weather forecast to see if we might get some rain.) • Layered clothing, temperatures can vary throughout the day • Lunch and snackables • Soft drinks, or not so soft if need be • Sunglasses • Waterproof gloves if it might be cold out • A smile Seasickness The study results are in and have been tallied... Seasickness Happens. The study concludes that approximately one out of five persons will be seasick, and this can happen even on the calmest of days. Most of our guests have a pretty good idea if they are susceptible to this dreadful malady. If you are not certain, we suggest that you take at least some minimal precautions. Here are a few suggestions: • A good nights sleep the night before, as fatigue seems to contribute greatly Minimize the use of alcohol • The night before, consider an over the counter remedy. (We like Bonine over Dramamine.) Take another as soon as possible in the morning Have a sensible breakfast. Good ole oatmeal is a good one. Also, minimize acidy foods like oranges and coffee • Try to stay comfortable, dress appropriately, if you need some air then go out on deck • Bring an apple. It may sound weird but an apple seems to be a better fix then a seasick tablet • If it becomes apparent that you might get sick.... Over The Side Please! If possible throughout the day, take a nap. Again, fatigue seems to be a big contributor to seasickness Enough said on this topic Borrowing/renting gear Rental gear is not generally available. As far as borrowing, just remember, if you find a kind soul who is gracious with their gear, understand that they quite likely use that gear to make their living, so be sure to return it in the condition, or better, than when you first received it. Living in Yakutat has its challenges, and one of those is getting the gear needed and keeping it in good repair. The time most residents have to earn their yearly income and do the necessary maintenance is very limited due to the seasonal weather.
