Kaizen - Continuous Improvement

We believe in Kaizen, the ancient Japanese word that means continuous improvement. We apply this to everything in our lives from family matters to fishing. If you believe in sharpening your blade until it's razor sharp then you are probably just like us.

Our Story

Although we grew up in different parts of the country (Tim in Minnesota and Laney in Massachusetts), we both grew up out on the water starting in canoes.  Even before we met, if someone had asked what your dream job would be if money were no object, we both would have being outdoors and on the water.  When we moved to Dog Island, it was our dream come true to be able to share our love and enthusiasm for the ocean and wildlife with our clients.

Meet the Team

Meet the Dog Island 7.  In addition to our experienced captain, there are 6 other members of the team that are full of energy and enthusiasm and can't wait to make your day out on the water unforgettable.
