Chris Jensen is a Port Captain for Seaspan and has been with the company since 1978. He was introduced to the waterfront at an early age because his father was also a tugboat captain for Seaspan. Jensen started off as a deckhand when he finished high school and received his tugboat captain’s ticket in the early 1990s. Initially he worked as a riverboat captain based out of New Westminster and since then he has worked around the Port Kells, Langley, Surrey, and Vancouver areas. Today, as Port Captain for Seaspan he is responsible for tugboat logistics for the company.
