Cook Inlet | Diversity Employer


The Saltchuk Marine family, with the tugboat as the center of our services, is steeped in a rich and storied history of innovation and service. With a keen use of technology, Saltchuk Marine companies: Foss Maritime, Young Brothers, Cook Inlet Tug & Barge, AmNav and Starlight continue to lead the industry in harbor services and marine transportation solutions, with safety and the environment leading our principles.

Cook Inlet Tug & Barge is a marine transportation company, specializing in harbor services and fuel distribution, with focus on the Port of Anchorage and Cook Inlet, Seward, Southeast Alaska, Aleutian Islands and Western Alaska.

Cook Inlet Tug & Barge was formed in 1924 by the Anderson Family. Originally named Anderson & Son’s Transportation Co., the family owned business helped build Alaska by providing marine services to contract mail, passenger and cargo services between Cook Inlet and Prince William Sound and all the way to Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, Anchorage and Seward and as far south as Puget Sound. Re-incorporated after World War II as Cook Inlet Tug & Barge, we have taken pride in being a market leader in the areas we have served. In 1964, after the big earthquake, Cook Inlet Tug & Barge refocused its efforts by providing premium marine services throughout South Central Alaska, especially Cook Inlet and the Port of Anchorage. We take pride in providing excellent services in a very unique and challenging environment.
