Your Guides

Gavin Platz first explored the flats of Nonouti in 2010 and began selecting islanders to be fishing guides.  Over several exploratory missions, he trained 15 Guides and several Boatmen.

On Gavin’s suggestion the famous Kiritimati Island Guide Moana Kofte was also asked to carry out a training programme which was completed in 2012.  Additionally, Gavin made a video with Moana to support the guide training. Gavin completed a 10 day review training with the guides in February 2018.

On every trip since Gavin continues to enhance and cement the Nonouti guides training and on a trip in September 2018 the guides had their graduation.

Our head guides Kiriata and Taam were part of the original guide section in 2010.

The Nonouti guide numbers are added to by Taam and Kiriata, who select and young islanders who meet the essential criteria, laid down by Gavin and Moana to ensure we have a pool of guides.

Each day our anglers will have their own guide accompanying them on the flats to not only spot fish but to ensure their health and safety.
