West Coast Towed Oil Fleet

Crowley owns and operates coastwise tank barges based out of Seattle that run throughout the U.S. West Coast from the Arctic to Mexico and to Hawaii. Crowley’s petroleum barges transport clean petroleum products anyplace U.S. flagged (Jones Act) tank vessels operate.

Crowley’s West Coast petroleum tugs typically carry a crew of 3 licensed officers (Captain, Chief Mate, and 2nd Mate), 1 engineer, 2 AB/Tankermen, and 1 Deckhand/Cook.

At present time we have a pressing need for cooks and AB/Tankermen. We encourage all qualified individuals to register with the IBU. Additionally, you may click on the following link to submit your name, qualifications, and interest.
