The legendary Charles Wheeler is the Owner and Skipper of Nevagivup and has been fishing out of Port Vila for the last sixteen years. He is originally from England where he spent many years hunting fox hounds and playing Polo. In the off season, he was travelling around game fishing, fishing in many places around the world as an avid angler.
The call then came to come and fish Vanuatu for Blue Marlin and he has never left. Charles has decided to make Vanuatu his home and he now has a family as well!
Charles has 5 World Records to his name and over 40 Vanuatu Records as well. He has also been the Skipper for Tom Evans, who specialises in World Records for Marlin on Fly, and Tom has two World Records with Charles. The list of tournament wins for Nevagivup and Charles is growing every year.
What ever your style of fishing, Charles is more than happy to accommodate your request or to chase the next record.

Her love of fishing started from a young age with beach and river fishing with the family and deep sea fishing started in 1995. It’s not very often that she gets to grab a rod anymore but when she does, she loves to catch Marlin on 15Kg line just to make it a little harder.
Michelle moved to Vanuatu in 2006 and took Crusoe Fishing from one vessel to three. She is also the admin side of the business from charter bookings to skippering Reel Capture which she is the owner of to organising staff to client pick ups. Michelle will endeavour to ensure that everyone has a fishing experience to remember. She is also very happy and settled in Vanuatu and has a family with Charles.<>
