Brian Mullaly

Captain Brian Mullaly moved to Alaska 30 years ago and has found himself working on boats ever since. He has spent 20 years working out of Seward, exploring Resurrection Bay and the surrounding waters recreationally and professionally in a variety of roles, including charter fishing, sport fishing, hunting, tourism, diving,  and marine operations.

After graduating with a degree in biology from Mount Union College in Ohio, Brian went north to follow his interest in fieldwork. He worked in waters across Alaska, from Baranof Island to Kachemak Bay, where he grew more and more passionate about being on the water, eventually obtaining his Merchant Mariners Credential. He made his way to Seward, first working as a research technician for the Alaska SeaLife Center with a focus on salmon research. Brian then transitioned to operating tour boats, showing people the beauty of the area and highlighting scientific work being done. Now, as captain of R/V Nanuq, he continues his exploration through the Seward Marine Center and the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.
