Sea Surveyor, Inc
SINCE 1985



Precision marine surveys for the engineering community



Lake Surveys

Sea Surveyor has surveyed over 60 lakes and reservoirs in 5 Western States, ranging in elevation from sea level to over 7,000’. Our tow vehicles have trailered our survey boats over 9,000’ mountain passes, and launched the boats in lakes without boat ramps. Our vessel’s have enclosed, heated cabins that allow surveys to continue in winter during rain/snow conditions.

Our 26’ survey vessel has a radiator-cooled engine, which guarantees no release of oil or gasoline into the lake.  Modern sanitation systems contain all waste. Electric-powered motors propel our smaller survey boats in pristine lakes.

Hydrographic surveys are typically used to map underwater topography and compute lake capacity tables.  Subbottom profiling surveys measure the thickness of sediment layers.
