Paddlefish Adventure's Mission Statement
We have bought
Paddlefish Adventure to run as a small family business; our goals and
priorities are to keep everyone safe and to have fun. We want
everyone to leave the boat with a big happy smile on their face (with
lots of fish)! We'll be offering deep sea, mackerel trips and
coastal cruises.We look forward to welcoming you onboard...
John is a local boy and
has been on and around the water his whole life. He was born in
Newquay and grew up in a house overlooking Newquay harbour where he
used to watch the boats from a young age. From around the age of 8 he
would hustle the mackerel boat trip skippers to take him out for an
hour or two after school. John has always loved being at sea and has
more often than not owned a boat to enjoy his favourite pastime.
In 2009 John moved to
the Philippines and later met his wife Joy. They built and
opened a restaurant and guest house business together. John had a
boat made to provide his guests island tours around the beautiful
Hundred Islands National Park. He named his boat 'Sandra' after
his mom! They have since moved back to Newquay with their little
deckhand Hunter who is also developing into a right little fisherman.
The family decided to buy 'The Adventuress' and continue to offer
boat trips from Newquay Harbour. Johns love for meeting new people,
the sea, boats and catching a few for dinner makes this his perfect
dream job. John is RYA qualified, holds STCW, First Aid and Sea
Survival. He has also won awards for working in high pressure
"The Adventuress" is a specially adapted "Lochin 33" workboat with twin 318bhp engines. There is an overhead canopy which provides shelter for rainy days, areas to sit and also a fully flushing marine toilet on board! A stock of cold drinks, water, chocolate bars and crisps are available to buy on board and "The Adventuress" is a fast and fun, yet very steady, boat on which you are far less likely to be seasick than some other types of boat!
