Great review, Melissa! I've actually showed several people the picture of your little man's patented puke posture - the first of it I've seen. So glad to have earned your business and to look forward to seeing you all again.

Thanks for the positive feedback! I'm really glad you enjoyed your time with us. Only one thing (and I don't usually correct my clients when they leave suck kind words) .... I went to Clemson. Go Tigers!

Captain Pollitzer is outstanding. We had an excellent experience. We've taken two charters with him & will schedule a third ASAP. Captain Pollitzer is professional, fun, & provides top notch service.
