Blue Tide Marine makes splash with new services

ADVERTISEMENT

Blue Tide Marine, started by a group of retired U.S. Navy veterans in 2015, has expanded its delivery services for vessels at sea. The company focuses on aerial cargo delivery, medical support, undersea services, security, and a variety of vessel transport and management service solutions.

A recent delivery in international waters to a yacht that was far from a dock included an air drop by Tropic Ocean Airways’ airplane. A medical responder parachuted to near the yacht and several Pelican cases were dropped.

“The chandleries do fantastic work, but if a captain needs help right away, we can deliver supplies – high-end or emergency – so they don’t have to head to port, clear in and wait for Fed-Ex,” Bob Pudney, the company president, said.

Other owners are Dawayne Lepper and Mike Oberhelman. Pudney is a soon-to-be-retired U.S. Navy surface warfare officer, while Lepper and Oberhelman are retired Navy SEALs.
“We have been putting this together for a couple years, and now we have key relationships with Tropic Ocean Airways. This was our first attempt on what is possible,” Pudney said. “We have specialized skill sets and different ways to look at things. We’re trying to educate the client base on what is possible.”

The boxes included a small engine part, shoes, a nautical chart, the owner’s favorite spirits and a rugby ball. There was also a request for the latest issue of The Triton.
Corporate headquarters for Blue Tide Marine’s global operations is in Virginia, with a satellite office in South Florida.
