  • Sea time

    Hi wondering if anyone could help. I've received a timetable type thing for cadetship. 1st sea time is from April to nov. my question is are you away that full time on 1 ship? Or is it spilt into trips? With leave in between?
    Many thanks in advance

    It depends, on company and ship type, but proably not

    Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

        from what i know it totally depends on your company so your best off to ask them!

          My experience was 3 sets of 5-6 months on one ship, which covered the full sea phases. Other guys/girls had 2/3 trips of a couple of months each. As stated, varies massively dependant on company. Who are you with?

            It's completely dependant on the company you are with. In my first sea phase with Maersk I did two 3 month trips, whereas there are guys with zodiac who did 4-5 month trips, then offshore guys did 4-6 weeks. And the same applied in my final sea phase
