It’s no wonder Captain Erik (“Tubby”) Anfinson has salt in his veins, his father Clifford Anfinson was a boat person all his life as a sport fisherman, chartering his vessel (the m/v Bass Tub) and in all things leisure.

Additionally, during the Native American Occupation of Alcatraz, Clifford was called upon by other fisherman to transfer participants of the Occupation, including Indians, provisions and newscasters.

At the time he was transporting cargo and people to the Island, he was not yet a father. Shortly after he was married to Lynn, and after the Occupation, Clifford sold the “Bass Tub” and purchased another vessel so that he could continue his career as a fisherman.

According to Lynn, Tubby’s mother and wife of Clifford, “My husband had a passion for being on the water…and whatever he chose to do was a fine decision with me.” Lynn herself was a bookkeeper in San Francisco during this time.

Tubby'nin başında olduğu için Alcatraz Cruises yaklaşık 13 yıl boyunca, o beş yaşında rıhtımda başlayan, babası ile geçirdiği tüm zaman su ve tekne sevgisini bağlar. Tubby, "Ne zaman tatile gitsek, her zaman su odaklıydı... hatırladığım kadarıyla geriden." Ve, oradan, Tubby 19 genç yaşta onun yüz brüt ton master / kaptanlisansı almak için gitti.
