A new Mariner employed by SEACOR Marine would become a
crewmember aboard an offshore vessel in the Gulf of
Mexico. While working in this unique working
environment, the Mariner may be assigned to a vessel for
extended periods of time. The most common schedule
aboard our vessels is 28 days on and 14 days off, but we
do have vessels with other schedules.
At times weather conditions will be difficult. Over time,
the Mariner would encounter varying weather conditions
with seas being calm to rough and temperature ranges
typical of the seasons. Motion sickness may occur.
The Mariner must prepare for life at sea. This involves
extended time away from family, friends, and loved ones.
There are times when many days may go by before having
the opportunity to make contact with home. The Mariner
must ask himself/herself if they and their family can
adapt to these conditions.
A new Mariner’s initial assignment would be to complete a
training program, which has two main objectives. First,
it is designed to loosely simulate life on board a
vessel under which the Mariner will be required to work.
Secondly, it is designed to provide the Mariner with
valuable knowledge and training, necessary to enable the
Mariner to carry out his/her duties in a safe and
efficient manner. For additional information regarding
this training, click here.
A new Mariner would be hired as a Deckhand or as an
Ordinary Seaman if they have obtained their Merchant
Mariner Document. Deckhands have little or no previous
experience and their main duties consist of
housekeeping, general maintenance, loading or
off-loading cargo, watch keeping and contributing to the
safe navigation of the vessel. A deckhand is encouraged
to get their Merchant Mariner document (MMD, commonly
referred to as a “Z” card) in order to work on larger
vessels. Information on obtaining an MMD is available at
A minimum qualification to be retained in any position on
a vessel including the position of Deckhand is to obtain
a Transportation Workers Identification Card (TWIC).
Information on the TWIC can be obtained from the website
Advancement is encouraged, and we provide eligible
employees with training assistance to help them achieve
their goals. It usually takes a Deckhand, with no
previous knowledge, approximately six months to advance
to an Unlicensed Engineer position if he/she is willing
to dedicate their time to learning the engine room.
All vessels are supplied with bed linens, blankets,
pillows, laundry detergent, bleach, toilet tissue and
soap. The following are items a new Mariner would need
- Pair of Steel Toed Work Shoes or Work Boots
- Pair of Steel Toed Rubber Boots
- Slicker Suit (Rain Suit, top and bottom)
- Personal Toiletries and Sanitation Items
- Tobacco products to last longer than the entire work
hitch (if applicable)
- Cellular phone, phone card, envelopes, stamps or
other means of staying in touch with family and
Personal supplies that consist of creams, powders or
prescription medications must be approved by the vessel
Captain and the Safety Department.
Our minimum qualifications for all offshore positions
are a valid driver’s license, a high school graduate or
GED, a Transportation Worker Identification Card (TWIC)
or the ability to obtain a TWIC upon employment for the
entry level Deckhand position, pass the USCG Merchant
Mariner Physical and DOT drug and alcohol screening.
