Over 115,000 kids have gone fishing!

Captain Rollo’s Kids at Sea organizes marine- awareness fishing trips for children who might not otherwise have such an opportunity to witness the beauty and splendor of being on the ocean. Youth are provided with on-the water ocean preservation education where they learn hands-on about the ecosystems that exist in our coastal waters. We serve disadvantaged, physically challenged, and at-risk youth. Since 1999, over 115,000 children have benefited.

John Rowe Memorial Fund

From the wishes of the Rowe family, in lieu of flowers, Friends of Rollo is starting a memorial fund in memory of John Rowe. As executive director, John was the backbone of the Rollo organization, which has educated over 110,000 kids about our marine environment and introducing them to fishing. John’s legacy lives on with every Friends of Rollo trip that leaves the dock, the young people that experience a day on the water learn the joys of fishing and witness the wonders of the ocean first hand.
