  • Bar Pilots navigate ships through the ever changing waterways of the Mississippi River Delta. Fog, rain, high winds, shifting shoals in a narrow channel coupled with high traffic density make our job uniquely challenging
  • The Bar Pilots keep a real time pulse on local conditions which is essential for the safe and efficient movement of vessels. We maintain an in house vessel traffic system that utilizes the latest technology to track local conditions such as weather, traffic density, shoaling, tides and other vital elements
  • Bar Pilots rigid training program, coupled with ongoing experience, keeps Pilots at the top of their skill level
In addition to navigating these waters we work closely with the United States Coast Guard in placement and maintenance of navigational aids, homeland security, and educational outreach for other mariners.
