Aloha Spirit Sportfishing

Channel Islands Sportfishing, Oxnard California

Captain Shawn Steward has been in the sport fishing business since the age of 12. Starting in the Channel Islands area aboard the ESTRELLA with Captain Jim Easley. After going from scrubbing boats and learning the ropes to getting his captains license at the early age 19 he spent time running the  SPEED TWIN and the MIRAGE.

In 1997 Shawn made the next step and went to work along Pat Cavanaugh aboard Bill Poole’s long range sport fisher EXCEL where he went from deckhand/engineer to second operator and eventually took Pat Cavanaugh’s place as captain of the EXCEL in 2002. During his time on the EXCEL Shawn learned the importance of a clean boat, customer service, and the never give up attitude that all long range crewmembers learn. Bringing back numerous notable catches and a few record catches, Shawn developed a great friendship with all of his fellow angler’s and peers.

In March of 2007 Shawn decided to leave the EXCEL to spend more time at home with his wife Marissa. In January of 2008 Shawn and Marissa purchased the ALOHA SPIRIT and specialize in limited load open party and charters.
