On a summer afternoon several years ago, John Hess went out with some diving companions off the coast of San Benedicto Island to spearfish for tuna. During his 90-foot dive, John experienced an extraordinary event. Every single fish in his vicinity scattered in the blink of an eye. While John carefully swam along, he was overcome with a sense of wonder as he watched an entire school of hammerhead sharks pass him. A once in a lifetime experience like this is just one of the exciting things John Hess has seen as a charter boat captain. But his passion for discovery didn’t stop there. Whether it’s on land or out at sea, John Hess believes that discovering and experiencing new things make life worthwhile.


Life Lessons

Whether it was learning how to build a boat from scratch, charting the best course to take to their dive destination or finding a new spot to take first-time divers, John Hess learned a great deal about life while working at sea. Each day John would experience something new and it compelled him to keep going and discover more. The experiences John had while working on charter boats not only made him an excellent mariner, but also taught him a great deal about himself. With this new outlook, John was ready to push himself to achieve higher goals and make the most of life.


Discovering Family

After meeting his future wife, Marla, on a dive excursion, John sold his charter boat business and set his sights on beginning a family and another successful career. John found that the wonderful the Victor Valley was the perfect place to start. Now, as the proud father of three children, John has realized fatherhood was the most important discovery of his life. “Teaching my son to catch his first fish was one of the proudest moments I have ever experienced,” John fondly remembers. “I see myself in my children’s faces when they experience something new.” When he’s not helping his clients, John enjoys learning to pilot a sailplane and taking his family mountain biking in Mohave Narrows.
