Meet the 
Boat Crew

Meet the Shuwari Sport Fishing Crew. Our crew have a combined experience of over 30 years, and have experience fishing all long the Kenya coast from Lamu in the North to Shimoni in the Pemba Channel to the extreme South. They also have extensive experience fishing in the water off Tanzania and Zanzibar.

We pride ourselves in having a team that is passionate about sustainable sportfishing and engages actively in conservation both on the water and onshore. Our policy is to tag and release all billfish, and other designated endangered species such as Giant Trevally.
