Anyone worked for these folks before? I’ve seen their beautiful ships around, but have never seen them in action or known anyone to have been onboard one. The main things I’m curious about are sea time and paid travel? I’ve heard its tough to get sea time on boats that don’t leave the dock often, and I was hoping to hear that they pay for travel to/from the boat. I don’t need to make money on the travel days, I just don’t want to have to pay out of pocket either.

Sadly, I’m sure they’re all running around now to clean up the mess off of Southern California right now.


They pay travel on the rotational boats but prefer someone close. That vessel is an older 166 OSV converted into a spill recovery vessel. Pay is a little low but excellent benefits and if you do become activated the pay is very good.
