OWNER + FOUNDER + KAYAK GUIDE
JeanBarakah Serody, grew up on the Island of Maui. With over 10 years of experience in sport fishing, he provides an immense amount of ocean and water safety knowledge to our clients. Reeling in monster pelagic & bottom since childhood, he has experience all over America including Florida, Washington and Hawaii. Jigging is his current obsession but he has experience in all types of sport fishing. Recently, JeanBarakah had a life-changing experience interacting with humpback whales via a kayak tour. This moment along with his love for sport fishing prompted the creation of Boomkanani Inshore Adventure Club, LLC. From kayak sport fishing to snorkeling and whale watching, his passion is to provide exceptional service & experiences, just like his, to clients from all over the world. His overall goal is to use his company to open a Kieki (Kids) Kayaking & Fishing Camp in the future to service and teach teh local kids of Maui!
LEAD KAYAK FISHING GUIDE
Keola Bachiller was born and raised on Maui on the beautiful shores of Kihei. Being so close to the ocean, he fostered a love for fishing very early at the age of 5. He’s experienced in almost all oceanic fishing styles, but his favorites are sport fishing for pelagic and shoreline with his family. Keola has frequently been called the “fish whisperer” with his skill and finesse he rarely comes back to shore empty handed. He is also a master waterman and knows the ins and outs of the ocean and how to navigate it safely. Fishing is definitely one of his favorite hobbies, but surfing and skimming are a close second and third. He has years of experience working fishing as well as snorkeling charters and always provides his guests with a fun, but also safe adventure time and time again.
Our General Manager, Lauren, is from Houston, Texas and a long time water addict. She is medical by training, completing her Physician Associate degree in 2015. She has been practicing as PA-C for 6 years, including on Maui. Lauren has immense experience and love for practicing medicine but also for the water as well as kayaking. Spurring from her college days kayaking Lady Bird Lake in Austin, TX, her love for kayaking only grew. After moving to Maui and meeting her fiance, JeanBarakah, she is now the brains behind Boomkanani Inshore Adventure Club, LLC and new-mom to our mascot, Liam.
