Sea Eye

Visit Sea Eye

In autumn 2015, Michael Buschheuer and a group of family and friends founded the non-profit organisation Sea-Eye e.V. Its goal is to save the lives of refugees in distress during their perilous escape to Europe. The organisation bought two ships, the Sea-Eye and the Seefuchs – two 26 metre-long former fishing cutters – and re-equipped them for the purpose of sea rescue missions. Regarding our vessels, in February 2016, the Sea-Eye started its voyage to the Mediterranean, to the area most refugees pass through during their perilous “journey. Later, in 2017 the  Seefuchs started its voyage to the Mediterranean in April 2017.
