“I have been a regular reader of gCaptain since its inception. As a blog created by and for maritime professionals, I find it insightful, relevant, reliable and informative. It is a “must read” every day. As a ‘recovering journalist' myself, I appreciate the professionalism of the reporting.”
Will Watson Governor, Maritime Security Council
"A phenomenal feat of journalism.”
“There is no better source for “behind the scenes”, up to date, and thought-provoking journalism in the Maritime Industry than gCaptain. The editors and team at gCaptain have tremendous and remarkable experience and bring unique perspective to every article. They seek news from the guys who are at sea, on the ships; they have the connections and the network.
I wouldn't be surprised if Sebastian Junger is a subscriber.”
Todd Kutkiewicz Military Sealift Command Officer
"I have utilized gCaptain for the last 4 years. They have done a great job bringing together the maritime/ offshore world. By nature, this industry operates far and wide across all oceans and continents and now there is a place for marine professionals to come together, network, learn, and discover new career opportunities. I recommend gCaptain for companies looking to increase their exposure online and around the world."
Matt Fuhrman Recruitment Director, Swift Worldwide Resources
"gCaptain is my primary source of daily news about the global maritime and offshore industry. It's an extremely user-friendly website filled with relevant and interesting news, one that shoreside and seagoing professionals in our industry clearly pay close attention to. I'm not at all surprised that they were identified by Forbes as the top online news outlet in our industry. If I need to get the word out to the industry, this is where I go first."
Craig Johnson Partner, Flagship Management
“gCaptain's ability to identify and distribute information on Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) issues, and more importantly, facilitate the exchange of opinion and thoughts of the maritime professionals involved, has captured the attention of the federal MDA community. Further, gCaptain's approach to leveraging web 2.0 tools and capabilities to collect, disseminate, and deliver information to a targeted audience, and their ability to identify trends in the movement of that information, has established itself as the model being emulated by many web-based MDA efforts. Undoubtedly, gCaptain stands at the forefront of maritime information and knowledge exchange, and an important tool for the MDA community at large.”
Cesar Morales US Maritime Domain Awareness Analyst
“I'm a regular reader of gCaptain. I love the mix of serious maritime news, technology updates, and especially the links to other blogs and web sites that I wouldn't ordinarily find. I feel like it keeps me up to date on what's happening in the industry but has features like Maritime Monday that are a pleasure to browse through. If you're in the maritime industry and aren't reading gCaptain you're seriously missing out.”
Lou Vest Houston Pilot
“gCaptain is the best maritime news website available, bar none. Their news is interesting, relevant, and their site is elegant and easy to use. I plan to advertise with them as soon as my site redesign is complete.”
Tim Klaybor General Manager, Fassmer
I discovered gCaptain two years ago when one of our recently graduated naval architects suggested we advertise with them for job openings. Ever since, I have started my day with gCaptain. It provides me with relevant news, interesting history, and a useful forum for connecting with other industry professionals. I would recommend gCaptain to anyone wishing to be at the forefront of the industry.
Mike Webster Technical & Business Development Manager, Austal
