SEAMOR Marine was established in 2006 in the beautiful City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, on Canada’s west coast and in the spring of the following year, our adventure leapt forward with the purchase of the intellectual property rights from a local Nanaimo tech company, Inuktun Services Ltd., where Robin Li, President, previously worked.

Founded by Robin Li and Inja Ma, a husband and wife team, SEAMOR represents the entrepreneurial spirit of intrepid immigrants and global citizens, dedicated to creating a successful venture in the founders’ new country. Inja transitioned her managerial skills drawn from a background in running educational programs to oversee material and human resources, finance and accounting at SEAMOR Marine. Robin drew from his previous experience in technical sales to see the potential in global markets.

SEAMOR Marine is a progressive company that specializes in the research, design and manufacture of subsea observation and inspection-class Remotely Operated Vehicles(ROVs). SEAMOR Marine is one of  just a few subsea ROV companies in Canada that exports products all over the world. SEAMOR ROVs can now be found on every continent and in every major body of water. SEAMOR’s brand is gaining a strong reputation  as a global leader providing powerful, reliable, versatile, quality technology and outstanding customer service. With over a decade of experience developing and manufacturing underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles(ROVs), our team is very proud to promote our unique underwater ROVs in global markets and continue to grow as an innovative leader in our industry.

About Our ROVs

SEAMOR ROVs have been designed with an engineering philosophy of modularity. This allows customers to select from a wide range of accessories and upgrades that can be added on to any of SEAMOR’s three flagship vehicles:

  • the Steelhead (a compact vehicle able to dive to 300 meters);
  • the Chinook (a powerful mid-weight vehicle with HD capability, able dive to 600 meters;
  • the Mako (a large, open-bay ROV with heavy payload).

SEAMOR also offers a wide range of in-house designed and built accessories such as auxiliary cameras, lights, handheld control pendant, and grippers. A cutting-edge 7-funtion hydraulic arm is also being developed for complex manipulation/sample retrieval.
