Our People

“I extremely enjoy my employment with Seaward Services Inc. Seaward Services has afforded me the opportunity to experience all of the aspects of the marine industry. As a Port Engineer I value most the vast array of technical and engineering project exposure I’ve received as it’s helped me to grow as an engineer and a manager.”

Adam Heimbrock, Port Engineer

Seaward Services, Inc.

“I have worked for Seaward Services and Hornblower Group on multiple vessels for five years now. I started out with no maritime experience. Now, I am a licensed mariner sailing as a navigator on an unlimited tonnage vessel. Seaward and all of my shipmates have helped make that possible. Their knowledge, professionalism, and kindness create a work environment that opens doors and encourages growth. Plus, we get to drive boats all day and look at beautiful scenery. What could be better than that? ”
