Ship Handlers said

"It is no wonder that Port Revel has earned a preeminent reputation in the piloting world. Your philosophy of instruction and facilities enable a pilot to utilize his/her skills in a multitude of situations, on a variety of vessels in varying water depths and tidal current conditions. Your database of our berths and understanding of the unique challenges we encounter are equally impressive. This was a very powerful learning experience with direct application to our duties which cannot be replicated elsewhere. Of course, people make the difference in any organization. In this respect we would like to recognize the superb cadre of instructors (...). Their professionalism and dedication to our group was simply outstanding. Likewise, the supporting team of technicians and staff enabled the entire session to proceed very pleasantly."
