Your Fishing Guide
Hannu Holopainen is a certified Fishing Guide. He also holds certification to operate vessels, first aid training and safety. This all guarantees your trip will be arranged professionally and safe. Still, we never forget the main point - enjoying fishing and nature.
Hannu has over 40 years of experience in fishing. He holds a Masters degree in Business and busy years in the business world required global traveling and also living overseas. This didn’t allow much time for fishing. Now, it’s time to combine this experience with fishing and provide you with unique experiences in the archipelago.
Valaskala is a young business, but has its roots deep in archipelago and local waters in Merimasku area. We operate mainly in Turku, Naantali, Kustavi and Parainen area.
Several generations have been fishing from Valaskala home harbor and the saga continues. We mainly fish using modern equipment and technology, but you can also enjoy fishing with more traditional techniques and equipment.
We use a Boston Whaler 210 Outrage boat for our fishing trips. It is an extremely safe and stable boat and designed for fishing. It can carry up to 10 persons and operates well in all conditions.
Boat is equipped with modern sonars, fish tanks, rod holders etc to complete the fishing experience. For your safety all participants are equipped with safety gear.
