"On the way, in we had a 6 foot Thresher shark jump
It was an awesome display!
for your support this year..."
Bob Vettel, Recreation Specialist II, City of Oceanside, Parks & Rec.
totally out of the water twice within about 10 feet of the boat!
Once again, I would like to thank Captain Rollo's Kids at Sea
"Watching young people
bait their hooks, and reel in a fish
was more memorable and satisfying
Wesley M. Warner, Dehesa Charter School, Educational Facilitator, Instructor of Science, English, and Robotics
respond to the open waters,
with their own two hands
than any classroom lesson."
Over 110,000 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 110,000 children have benefited.
John Rowe Memorial Fund
John Rowe’s Memorial will be held on Monday 2/6 at 10am at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point
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.
