How it all started
Our team at Ryu-Kin consists of Japanese Captains paired with American deckhands and first mates dedicated to creating the ultimate sport fishing experience on Okinawa. Our team fishes out of the Kin Port with Captain Yamagawa and Family. Ryu-Kin owners include Kameron Burrell and Zack Bacon who have been fishing the waters of Okinawa collectively for more than a decade. Ryu-Kin was born in 2018 when our deckhands linked up with Capt Yamagawa aboard the Japanese Fishing Vessel (Risa Maru). Together Kam, Zack and Capt Yamagawa decided to start a fishing charter that 's main focus was to build the customers ultimate experience. Catering to all levels of angler, and any nationality in order to provide the ultimate sport fishing experience is our goal.
