Captain Ben Cowley

Captain Ben Cowley is an expert in outdoor adventure and fun. Originally from Los Altos, California, he has been fishing, camping, adventuring and exploring since before he can remember. He has been a sponsored surfer, spearfisherman, and fisherman and ultimately settled into his mountain life after 14 years abroad living in Mainland Mexico. He is a US Coast Guard licensed 100ton captain and licensed fishing guide and has captained everything from 20ft pangas in Mexico to 85ft Luxury Yachtfishers. Lake Tahoe however has always been his end game, the place he spent his summers as a kid and learned the love of nature. His two kids Mahana and Kai are always by his side and training to take over the business so dad can go goof off. 

Mahana Cowley

Mahana has been following her dad on fishing trips since she was 3 months old. Already with hundreds of hours of sea time, she has caught everything from marlin to bluegill. When she's not in school or on another adventure, she often accompanies her dad when there are younger kids on the trips. She aspires to one day take over as captain. 

Uncle Jimbo

As a 7th generation Tahoe native, there‘s nobody more passionate about the lake and it’s surroundings. Uncle Jimbo’s great great grandfather was the very first Fish and Game Warden in Lake Tahoe. Not only is he great at putting you on the fish but he will have you rolling with his stories and enthusiasm. By the end of your trip he will be your Uncle Jimbo too.
