Discovering Water invites you to join us on a journey to discover exotic locations, diverse cultures, and some of the most spectacular waters worldwide!
The fishing show industry is in desperate need of something different! We offer a breath of fresh air with an Anthony Bourdain inspired lifestyle format that integrates travel, culture, culinary, and adventure all while utilizing our passion for fishing as the glue to bind it all together. This is “Discovering Water”.
In this show, you’re going to miss out on those blatant infomercial style references to sponsor products and the wildly overused “interview” format that together has broadly stagnated the industry. Instead, this show is focused on producing the highest quality content aiming to draw in a broader audience, bring them with us on an incredible journey, and inspire passion in our viewers.
A powerful narration by the legendary Flip Pallot sets the stage of each epic voyage then our savvy and passionate host Tyler Kapela brings you along for the ride. Viewers are going to have to hold on tight when Tyler Kapela throws the throttle down in our 52’ Gulfstream Yacht. We will let water dictate the path of our adventures. The time has come to pack your bags and join us on this monumental journey.
WELCOME TO “DISCOVERING WATER”.
Gulfstream Yachts produces extremely high quality, custom, and semi-custom, foam-filled unsinkable boats that are perfect for recreational, commercial and government use.
The foundation of what makes every unsinkable Gulfstream Yacht so safe and sets them apart from almost every other boat manufacturer in the world is the foam-filled construction of their hulls.
We have proven the benefits of this manufacturing technique with a wide variety of recreational, military, law enforcement, fire department and commercial customers over the years.
