Sea Breezes is a monthly magazine devoted to the worldwide shipping industry.  Our focus is on the latest maritime news, including specialist coverage of naval, ferry, coastal, asia-pacific, north american, sail, cruise and superyacht sectors.

We also explore ships, ports, maritime events and places in depth in our regular features and we have a keen eye to the rich history and traditions of the maritime industry.

Since it was first published in the early years of the last century, Sea Breezes has strived to bring you the news and features you want to read.  We will continue to do this, and are committed to embracing the latest technology to get content to you.
