Fife Maritime Inc. is a Seattle-based ground transportation company founded in 1990. We are proud to be the only business in the area that provides transport services tailored to the needs of mariners, and we work hard to offer our maritime industry professionals the quality service they deserve.

Our Partners

We work closely with maritime agents to provide safe and efficient transportation for mariners. Our Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC)-certified drivers and agents can also assist you with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) clearances, paroles, and safeguards (CBP-approved vendor).

Our company has partnered with several clinics and hospitals in attending to the medical needs of our mariners. We take care of the transportation that they require to get to these medical facilities. While their vessel is in the port, the mariners can use this time to visit their dentist or other medical specialists so they can still monitor and take care of their health despite their workload and busy schedule.

Who We Are

We aim to give our customers the highest quality of service. Our team truly enjoys the work we do and the different places we get to visit. We are also grateful that through our business, we get to serve our hardworking mariners whom we really care about.

For our clients’ peace of mind, we only use insured and bonded vehicles. We also make sure that all of the cars, vans, and SUVs we operate are new, clean, and well-maintained to ensure a safe and comfortable travel. Lastly, our staff is knowledgeable in port security, maritime protocol, and medical assistance.

Our Company History

Jon Fife, our CEO, began his career in the ground transportation business in 1982 with the establishment of Elite Limousine Service. By 1989, his company had grown to be the second largest limousine and town car service in the Seattle metropolitan area.

In that same year, local maritime agents contacted Jon, looking for a company to handle their ground transportation needs. The company quickly learned the demands of the maritime industry, and we opted to concentrate our fleet to meet their requirements. We then decided to sell the limousine service. In 1990, Fife Maritime Inc. in Federal Way, WA was born.
