Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On September 22, 2004, the Company issued the following press release:

Seabulk International, Inc. (Nasdaq: SBLK) today announced that it had incurred no material adverse impact from Hurricane Ivan or the two storms (Hurricanes Frances and Charley) that preceded it in the Gulf of Mexico and along the east and west coasts of Florida in recent weeks. Seabulk has operations in all three areas. Seabulk’s offshore business reported no damage to its vessels and expects activity in the Gulf of Mexico to increase in the aftermath of Ivan. Seabulk’s towing business sustained minor damage to two tugs in the port of Mobile and to its office facilities in Tampa. Seabulk’s Jones Act tanker business had no lost revenue days as a result of the three storms. Indeed, throughout this hurricane season, Seabulk Tankers was able to maintain its customers’ supply lines without interruption.

As a consequence and confirming its previous guidance, the Company also announced that results of operations to date in the third quarter of 2004 (ending September 30) are running ahead of the immediately preceding quarter, when it had net income of $2.7 million or $0.12 per fully diluted share. The Company expects this trend to continue for the remainder of the third quarter and into the fourth quarter.

With a fleet of 150 vessels, Seabulk International is a leading provider of marine support and transportation services, primarily to the energy and chemical industries. We provide benchmark quality service to our customers based on innovative technology, the highest safety standards, modern efficient equipment and dedicated, professional employees.
