Dewees Island Introduces Ferry Staff Member Mike Palin

Dewees Island welcomes our newest ferry mate, Michael “Mike” Palin.

Michael E. Palin is the proud brother of 2 siblings, Jennifer & Cass. He joins the DI ferry as a deckhand and is thrilled to support the conservation efforts of our Atlantic Coastal region.

Some of his greatest memories are coming to Dewees for the first time at age 11.  

From growing up on Lake Wylie, (Charlotte) guiding rafts at the US National Whitewater Center, and crewing on monohulls in the tropics, Michael is excited to support Captain Thornton and the Dewees Island POA. He hopes one day to gain experience sailing at high latitudes and learn more about the world’s oceans.  

Please extend a warm welcome to Mike when you see him on the ferry!
