Money well Spent! Sam and Matt made this very fun and informative. The old tug Cornell is awesome. Handles great. I had a good time and a very solid intro to the basics of tug operations. I’m excited about crossing over into the towing industry. Thanks guys for this unique opportunity to acquire the credentials to advance my career.


Great organization and great people.

I cannot say enough positive things about Diamond Marine. Sam, Matt, and the crew went out of their way and worked long hours to help me get my TOAR signed off. They worked with my schedule to help me get what I needed before I went offshore again. Excellent customer service. I was very impressed with every aspect of their organization. If you want to get a TOAR, I would highly recommend them. Thank you Sam, Matt, and crew!


I wouldn't be where I am today without their help.

I graduated from a maritime academy and wanted to pursue a career on harbor tugs. However, with only 20 days of time on a towing vessel and no TOAR I was having a difficult time finding a job. Once I completed my TOAR with Sam I was immediately hired by a harbor tug company in the gulf. A few years later as a mate on a brand new z-drive boat I can’t thank Sam, Matt and Paul enough. They are great guys who run a professional and very convenient operation that allows Mariners to advance their careers. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help.

I enjoyed my class, on the Cornell. Matt, and Brody, were professional, quick, and got the job done. If you like old boats, this is it. That old 16 cylinder Cleveland engine,
is totally cool. Wish I had more time to sight see around Kingston. There is some great history there.


The class was great!

I was a little hesitant in the beginning but the Cornell handled so well that all that was gone in the first two minutes at the wheel!
