SNS Nautical Services is an organization that is conceptualized with the aim of addressing the constantly growing needs of the maritime industry. Estd. in the year 1998, it is one of the very few premier facilities that is recognized both nationally and internationally. It started with a maritime training insitute (SNS Maritime Institute) that eventually expanded into the other nautical feilds over the time. It is a proud enterprise that excels in imparting training to merchant navy aspirants and facilitating manning/management/maintenance of ships and installations.

Director's Message

"Maritime Industry has seen a significant amount of change in the past few decades. This industry forms one of the backbones of a country's progress and so, there is a constant demand of better and experienced members. The need of the hour led to the creation of a one stop destination for most maritime requirements, both for the companies and the students. It began with SNS Maritime Institute and soon, branched out into many other aspects of the shipping industry. Over the years, it has been recognized for its consistent performance and good training of the candidates globally. The steady progress of SNS Nautical Services has encouraged me and my entire faculty and staff to perform better and take up newer initiatives for the betterment of this industry.                                                                 

 Hardwork and determination truly have no substitutes. "
