    Hey,

    I'd suggest emailing Mike from Seamariner for some advice, he's the man that got me a job with P&O Ferries a few years ago.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the advice! I'll send an e-mail to Mike with more or less what I put in my forum post and tell him you put me in his direction.
    I have to agree with you on approaching the companies directly. Whenever I went to the careers section of their page I just got re-directed to an agency website.

    The Cook Strait ferries down here operated in a funny way for a bit. One of the two companies servicing the strait is government owned and operated. They operated 2 leased ships from Stena RORO, which were UK flagged. I guess by crewing these ships with UK issued deck officer tickets they could save some money along the way. They have since brought one of those ships from them however.

    I gained the majority of my sea time on the other company Strait Shipping, which is in direct competition with the government run line Interislander.
