Captain Chris Garner is a Montgomery, Alabama native. He started working on a fuel dock in 1985 when he moved to Orange Beach.

And when a few years later Chris met Paul Kell and started working for him as the captain of the High Cotton, they built a great working relationship. In 2012, Chris acquired the High Cotton from the Kell family.
