SEAMOR Marine and where you will find our ROVs

We manufacture the world’s most reliable, versatile & powerful underwater ROVs

For more than 30 years our innovative advancements in underwater remotely operated vehicles have changed the way the world sees the deep. SEAMOR Marine traces its roots to 1989, when our first-gen ROV technology was developed. New ownership in 2006 significantly evolved the robotics of our next-gen vehicles, expanding the limits of work and exploration in some of the ocean’s most dangerous conditions. For decades our ROVs have inspired learning, growth, and the protection of precious life-sustaining resources.

Our manufacturing facilities are located in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Our ROVs operate on every continent and in every major body of water around the globe.

Keeping the Power & Water on

Our industry-proven ROVs help with the construction, inspection and maintenance of vital infrastructure that supports civilization. Their cameras and underwater tools allow crews to safely work on pipelines, reservoirs and dams that supply drinking water and electricity to families like yours.

Assisting in Search & Rescue Efforts

When accidents happen, forensic specialists use our ROVs in the underwater search and recovery of missing people, vehicles, and equipment. Acoustic search capabilities on our search vehicles provide visibility in murky conditions and minimize diver risk, conducting meaningful work that reunites families and friends or brings closure after an accident.

Protecting Marine Habitats

Scientists use our ROVs to go as deep as 600 meters for extended periods to observe and protect marine habitats. Our underwater research vehicle technology empowers university and government research teams with the ability to conduct underwater surveys, coral reef studies, aquaculture inspections, and shipwreck investigation.

Inspiring Industry Innovation

As an industry leader with a global network of dealers and clients, SEAMOR Marine is a hub of information for our clients and dealers. The open exchange of information and experience inspires innovation within the entire industry and drives the creation of new tools and features. 

Designing for Eco-sustainability

Our observation-class ROVs perform work in the marine field to help protect and preserve our environment, and therefore we feel it is our natural responsibility that they are designed with sustainability in mind. Our modular systems are designed to be maintained and repaired, rather than using throw-away components. SEAMOR ROVs run on electricity efficiently enough to operate on renewable energy storage systems in the field rather than traditional gasoline generators.

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 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 to 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-function hydraulic arm is also being developed for complex manipulation/sample retrieval.

“We have completed many inspections so far.  The video is incredible, especially in the potable water conduits we were inspecting! The Chinook system works great, very impressed with the fit and finish of the system.  Our clients and the consulting engineers were very impressed, too. SEAMOR is first rate in communications, all the staff, including the owner, Director & President, Robin,  makes time for you to answer any questions you have no matter when you inquire.”

“We drive the SEAMOR ROVs pretty hard – hundreds of hours per year – and they have performed well for us over a long period of time. They can handle all types of marine and freshwater environments and have the added benefit of high resolution imagery, intuitive control and great portability.”

“The SEAMOR Steelhead ROV has performed beyond our expectations. The power and stability of the vehicle allows for a very precise and fluid inspection. The video camera is high quality with a very good field of view and the rear camera is invaluable when performing tunnel inspections. During our recent project the Steelhead pulled its 1,640’ tether easily with no operational effects to the vehicle”.

Evolution of SEAMOR ROVs

SEAMOR Marine has been designing and developing ROVs for a decade. Over this time, we have prototyped and successfully launched several different models and iterations of our ROVs.  We are proud to showcase our previous designs to demonstrate what we’ve done and how our ROVs have evolved over the years.
