Video Maritime Pilots' Institute
The Maritime Pilots Institute is the premier training facility for River Pilots employing a mix of virtual and real world facilities. Located in Covington Louisiana, we are 45 minutes from downtown New Orleans while offering the safety and amenities of small town life.
The training presents a balance between simulated locations with a variety of environmental conditions and manned scale models of cargo ships in a series of lakes with docking and currents and live factors such as wind and weather.

Specialized training for maritime pilots
Quebec City, Quebec, Canada – June 23, 2020 – The Maritime Simulation and Resource Centre (MSRC), a world-class pilot simulation training and port feasibility studies facility, is pleased to announce the release of an informational video on the new S-102 standards on surface bathymetry products.
In the video, Captain Pascal Rhéaume, pilot and member of the technical committee for the Corporation of Lower St-Lawrence Pilots, an active stakeholder involved in the project, introduces the progress made on the development of the S-102 standards. He presents a brief history of navigational charts and explains how technology has allowed these charts to evolve concurrently with the maritime industry as a whole. Captain Rhéaume highlights the groundbreaking benefits of these new standards and how they can greatly improve navigational safety for all seafarers across the globe.
As mentioned in a previous joint press release on November 5, 2019, the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) wishes to promote the implementation of the new S-100 standards to provide mariners with access to additional information (bathymetry, surface currents and water levels) and greater versatility in the display of these data. CHS took advantage of World Hydrography Day to present the work conducted in relation to the S-102 standards and to broadcast Captain Rhéaume’s video.

Video Thunder Child II fly past in appreciation of our Front-line workers
At Safehaven Marine it was great to be able to launch a new pilot boat for the Port of San Ciprian in Spain after nearly 2 months of Lockdown. She was nearly finished at the start of the lockdown. It sure was nice to be on the water again, even with social distancing.
We wanted to do something nice to lift everyone's spirits during these challenging times around the World, so we did a fly past our home Port of Cobh in Thunder Child II (Safehaven’s Transatlantic record attempt vessel) in support of all our front-line workers, doctors and nurses, the coastguard, fire, ambulance and rescue services, police officers, port operatives, seamen, pilot boat crews and marine pilots, as well as all those involved in keeping the global supply chain working. Here’s a little video we made, the sound track of David Bowies ‘Heroes’ says it all!
