Captain Bryan C. Clark

A sailor of Hawaiian waters since 1998, Bryan started his boating career on Catalina Island, fishing and parasailing. Wanting to experience the ocean not just as a hobby or employment, he moved to Hawaii and the ocean became his lifestyle. With a 100 ton Captain's License in-hand, his first position as a captain on a charter fishing boat was on the Reel Pleasure out of Kawaihae; a boat that remains in our fleet, however now moored in Ko’Olina Harbor on the island of Oahu.

A few years later, Bryan heeded a call and headed to Saipan to work on a 75ft catamaran, running Saipan sunset cruises. After a couple of years, Hawaii was tugging at his heart once again and he returned, to continue fishing and sailing along the Kona and Kohala coasts for a local and well-known company here on the Big Island. With vast amounts of knowledge and experience gleaned from his years at sea, he decided to start his own business: Endless Summer Private Charters on the Makani Kai II. He continues to do what he loves, and he loves sharing ocean life,  incredible sea adventures, and the thrill of Big Island sport fishing with just about anyone with a pulse! And an interest in the Hawaiian lifestyle, and the ocean at large!

His acquaintances have become guests, and his guests have become friends. 

“It’s the only job I can imagine at this time in my life. My favorite place on earth is my office, and every day is a new experience. I couldn’t ask for a better way to make a living in this world.” 

Meet our marketing director and charter specialist, Penny Ritter:

“Little did I know that my childhood years spent growing up on boats would come back around to serve me much later in life!” Penny is a native to Denver; a city which "boasts" a couple of reservoirs and a few mountain lakes. She spent many a weekend sailing the "not-so-high" seas of Cherry Creek and Chatfield reservoirs, strapping on her slalom ski or boating the icy cold waters of Grand Lake, CO.

An advertising and marketing executive by trade, and real estate specialist in Denver until just a few years ago, Penny is happy to leave some of the conventional behind, and pursue a life and business a-little-less-ordinary, here in Hawaii! 

"My days working with Endless Summer Private Charters gives me a chance to do what I love! To sail, to meet people, to entertain, and to share life’s most amazing experiences. In my humble opinion, until you’ve seen a whale up-close and personal, you haven’t lived life.” Come share an adventure of a lifetime with us!
