    Our Maritime Security Services

    Onboard Security Guards

    We provide male and female security guards, in or out of uniform, to maintain a constant security presence on cargo ships, private yachts, and passenger ferries. For ships travelling in high-risk zones where potential piracy is an issue, we can provide fully licenced armed specialists for protection and reassurance

    Ferry Passenger Management

    Working in some of the major ferry ports in Europe, we provide security guards for document and ticket checking, passenger management, advice and guidance, and a range of onboard security patrol duties. Protecting ferry staff from rowdy behaviour and guarding against stowaways are important aspects of the service.

    We provide maritime security guards for access control by manning gates and barriers. We also offer port patrols, perimeter and container security, remote monitoring of CCTV feeds and emergency response services to ensure complete safety and security for port and docking facilities
