Ceara Salvage Marine Services offers on-water solutions in Clayoquot Sound. The fleet includes Beach Hopper, a 26-foot aluminum landing craft; Beamsville, a 39-foot ville-class tugboat and Memere, a 30'x 10' crane barge.
Owner/operator Marcel Theriault is a certified Transport Canada 150-tonne master, with an unrestricted SVMO, as well as qualifications in Marine Crane Operations and Commercial Diving.
VESSEL ASSIST AND towing
Our 39’ tugboat, Beamsville, provides vessel assist services and general towing. Ceara Salvage also has the equipment and expertise to recover sunken vessels.
The Beach Hopper can transport your group of up to 6 passengers wherever you need to go. Kayaks and surfboards are easy to load and unload through the walk-on/walk-off bow ramp. The Beach Hopper is also popular with film crews, bird-watchers, nature photographers and marine researchers.
Freight such as pick-up trucks, quad bikes and building supplies can be moved around the west coast with a 30'x10’ Hiab ramp barge and tug. For smaller loads or beach drop-offs, the 26’ landing craft, Beach Hopper, is a better fit.
DOCKWORK AND ANCHORING
Ceara Salvage has been providing dockwork and anchoring services in Clayoquot Sound for nearly 20 years. From anchor surveys and safety reports, to regular maintenance or new installations, we have the equipment and experience to help you.
