Okay, so let me set the scene.....It is 5:00 A.M and a young kid introduces himself as the Captain of 50 foot boat that fourteen people have just boarded for a fishing excursion out into the Pacific Ocean. After Johnny welcomed us he asked, "Does anyone have any questions?" I immediately asked, "How old are you?"...."I am 22 Sir!"
After Michele coated the floor (inside of the cabin) David (deck hand) graciously and expeditiously provided a container for my wife as he began to clean up the floor. He was very kind and generous as he took care of a rather unpleasant moment. In fact, the reason that I thought to write this post is a direct response to the brilliant, highly professional, extremely efficient manner by which Johnny and his crew Patrick and David served all of us via Westport Charters located in Westport, Washington
I am always, always quick to mention excellent service when the quality of service is outstanding! Throughout this trip with several of us, myself included, vomiting, nauseous, so not use to the motion of the ocean, David and Patrick, ran around this boat untangling crossed fishing lines, re-baiting hooks, doing what ever 14 people needed. I watched these young men walk around this boat as if they were on dry ground providing excellent service to all of the guest for nine hours. I know that I speak for many on board, these three young men were simply OUTSTANDING!
I had a moment to speak with Captain Johnny sharing with him how pleased many of us were with their performance!
For approximately nine hours these three very young men epitomized serving others. They took very good care of all of us. It would be remiss (for those of you who know me in business) to not write this post!
Not to sure about another day of fishing and vomiting (apparently my sea legs vanished several years after Navy service.) However, should I decide to do this again Westport Charters, the Comorant, Captain Johnny, along with David and Patrick are reason enough to return to Westport, Washington. Thank you so much!
And yes, it is true...I was the only one to catch a salmon weighing in at 5lbs 7oz!
