After much consideration, Captain Matt Luzon has informed us he has accepted a position with Coastal Expeditions in Beaufort, SC. The new position offers career advancement and allows more family time with his son Abe, who is Matt’s first priority.
Matt began his employment with Dewees in 2013 for one year and returned full-time in 2017. During his tenure with Dewees, he built strong relationships with the crew and our residents. Matt is a skillful captain who brought years of experience to our operation and his extensive knowledge of vessels, Coast Guard regulations, and passenger boat operation have been an asset to the Island. His calm, caring demeanor and zen vibe will certainly be missed by all of us. The team and community members wish him the best with his new position and new adventure down south. The door is left open for Matt to return to Dewees as needed, but this weekend will be Matt’s last weekend working full-time. Please extend your warm regards and best wishes when you see him on the ferries. As Matt would say, we are losing a “wicked good dude”.
