Captain Pete Yukins
Pete grew up in Manchester, MA, and has been a lead Kids Camp guide for almost 15 years. Between commercial and recreational fishing, Pete may spend more time on the ocean than on land.

When Pete is not on the water, he spends time with his two young children.

Captain Faxon Michaud
Faxon has been fishing in and around the North Shore since the age of eight when his parents signed him up for The Ultimate Kids Fishing Camp. Little did they know that this camp would spark a life long love of fishing and the sea. Faxon earned his USGC license in 2014, and has fished both salt and fresh water from the coast of Marblehead to the rivers of Montana and back to the canyons a few hundred miles off Cape Cod. Faxon is energetic, gregarious, highly knowledgeable, and always has a bright smile on his face. His diversified skill set allows for him to use different methods of fishing to ensure that kids have a great day on the water.
Captain Tony Santosus
Tony grew up fishing the waters of Long Island Sound. He now spends his time fishing, guiding, diving and hunting Massachusetts' North Shore and other Gulf of Maine waters. During the off season, Tony spends some of his time fly tying, traveling in search of the ultimate fishing experience and staying current on the marine environment and angling techniques. To go along with his numerous financial industry licenses, Tony is a USGC licensed captain, a PADI certified diver, and a new dad!
Captain Dan Gray
Dan grew up in Manchester, with a passion for fishing, and hunting. Dan enjoys a wide range of fishing styles and is as happy landing an 8” brookie from a tiny feeder stream as he is with an 800 Bluefin Tuna from Stellwagen Bank. Dan is USCG licensed and spends a considerable amount of time in the fall commercially fishing for giant Bluefin tuna. He is regarded as our “Go-To” guy for the offshore fishing scene. Dan is in his third year with the Kids Camp team, and is often accompanied in the boat by his Chocolate Lab Boo.
Captain Garrett Kanter
Growing up in Marblehead, Garrett always had a passion for the water, and that continues today! He has been fishing the waters of Marblehead and beyond for over 10 years. He grew up fishing for striped bass and bluefish locally, but quickly became obsessed with catching big fish in remote places. Having earned his USCG Captain’s License, he has fished up and down the east coast from the Florida Keys, to the Atlantic Canyons, to the Gulf of Maine. He has targeted a variety of species including Sailfish, mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, white marlin, blue marlin, mako shark, blue shark … and the list keeps growing! A standout college Lacrosse player, Garret has also been a lacrosse coach, and run kid’s lacrosse camps. Always smiling, fun to be around, absolutely obsessed with fishing, and piloting a sweet boat, Garret brings a great time to all of his trips.
Captain Greg Katz
Greg is another early Kids Fishing Camp participant. Now, 10 years later, he has become quite the accomplished fisherman and guide. One of those All Star young men … bright, respectful, intuitive … who could never kick the lure of the sea. Greg passed all of his Coast Guard license requirements prior to being old enough to submit them. He then honed his fishing skills until his 18th birthday at which point he submitted his material and was awarded his USCG Captains License. Greg had been a mate for The Ultimate Kids Fishing Camp for several years, then began running charters on his own, and is now one of our top captains.
