Seattle and the Puget Sound area has a long maritime and naval history, and it’s no surprise that it’s one of our top-visited cities to gCaptain.

With some of the world’s top naval architect firms located within the “Emerald City”, nearby bustling shipyards such as Vigor Industrial and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and the Port of Seattle, opportunities exist for those interested in a maritime career.
