Join Captain Sean and the Dwyer family, as they honor the memory of their founder and father, Patrick Ford Dwyer. In 2005, Pat was diagnosed with ALS and lived for eight years with grace, humor, resilience, innovation and courageousness to show his goals for life and family would not be held up by this insidious disease. Pat passed away in 2013 from his ALS.

Throughout those eight years Jenny, and their two children, Brenna and Sean were by Pat's side, steadfast in their mission to help him see through two of his life's goals: 1) to grow the business and put a second vessel on the water, fishing crab and 2) to work towards finding a cure for ALS. Today, the Dwyer family continue to honor Pat by supporting the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the world's first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100% on ALS research. Your gift fuels the lab's continuous efforts to advance promising drugs and help END ALS. Join Sean, Brenna, Bri and Jenny's efforts by donating in honor of Pat Dwyer.
