At Sea Reality TV

Sunday VOW’s (Videos of the Week)

There’s currently no shortage of good maritime shows on television. Here’s three that float my boat.

Deadliest Catch

Last year I posted about the Deadliest Catch here and here. This year they have added regular behind the scenes video-casts (thru iTunes) that are pretty interesting. The website is also worth a visit. Hey, these guys put their lives on the line so that you can eat fancy seafood; the least you can do is watch! (Frequently on the Discovery Channel)

And you think your work environment is challenging.

America’s Port

Finally, a show the tells the story about why America’s maritime industries remain so important today. “America’s Port provides an unblinking view of this vibrant and colorful nerve center for global trade — the Port of Los Angeles. Get an inside look at this massive complex and the intrepid individuals charged with keeping it running smoothly and securely 365 days a year. It’s a dynamic and dangerous 24/7 operation.” (Mondays at 10PM on National Geographic Channel)


Update: check the latest post about Episodes I and II

The PBS series CARRIER: Life aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz starts tonight and if these clips are any indication, it looks great! Make sure that you visit the website as well and take a tour the ship and check out the great “making of” diaries and videos. (Starting Sundays, April 28th and running consecutive nights through May 1st; 9 – 11 PM on PBS; find your local listing here)

Sea-Fever Style: Subway Sea Monster by Joshua Allen Harris

I loved Joshua Allen Harris’ earlier creations so much that I posted off topic about them. Now he’s done a Sea Monster which is cool and definitely suitable for Sea-Fever. Enjoy!

Northeast Maritime Institute Offers Maritime Career and USCG License Counseling

NMI crest  Northeast Maritime Institute recently announced a new maritime career and US Coast Guard license counseling service to people interested in pursuing maritime careers as well as independent mariners looking to advance in the maritime industry.

Northeast Maritime Institute faculty will be joined by Andrew A. Hammond, a 14 year veteran of the US Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Boston, MA, at Northeast Maritime Institute’s Fairhaven campus every other Wednesday afternoon to meet with mariners and guide them through the regulatory process of Merchant Mariner Licensing.

An appointment is required. Please call 508-992-4025 to schedule a Maritime Career and USCG Licensing Counseling appointment.

“Northeast Maritime Institute is pleased to offer this valuable new service to mariners,” said Eric Dawicki, Northeast Maritime President and CEO. “The regulatory waters can be complex but this new program will guide mariners through the process and on to successful maritime careers.”

Northeast Maritime Institute provides professional education for mariners and prides itself in being one of the forerunners in private maritime education and training in the United States and around the globe. A specialized agency with an international client base, NMI helps mariners complete the training necessary to receive their U.S. Coast Guard license, Commonwealth of Dominica license, or Merchant Marine document allowing them to work within the maritime community worldwide. Building awareness of safe and efficient maritime operations for both commercial and recreational operators is Northeast Maritime Institute’s highest priority.
