founder's message

We are a highly safe, environmentally responsible, efficient, and customer service oriented company in the marine services business. My vision for the Company upon its inception in 1987, was to become the safest and most environmentally responsible marine transportation company in the country. We strive to exceed our customer’s expectations, maintain a good standard of living for our employees, and improve the communities in which we live and operate.

As a result of our strategic focus on safety, environmental protection, and customer service, Harley Marine continues to be one of the fastest growing marine transportation businesses and leading providers of marine transportation services. We have grown from one leased tug and barge in Seattle’s Puget Sound, into a widely diverse fleet of tugs and barges with diversified marine operations in all major West Coast ports, New York and the American Gulf. If you need any additional information regarding our family of companies, please learn more about our services or contact us.
