Set forth below is the text of a communication sent to SEACOR employees by
SEACOR Holdings Inc. This is being filed pursuant to Rule 425 under the
Securities Act of 1933.

To all SEACOR Employees:

Today we announced a merger agreement with Seabulk International, Inc, a company
based in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Most of you know of Seabulk's offshore support
vessel operations which involves approximately 110 vessels in the Gulf of
Mexico, Middle East, Asia, Mexico, Brazil and West Africa. In addition, Seabulk
operates 10 U.S. Jones Act Product/Chemical tankers, two modern international
product tankers and a fleet of 26 harbor tugs.

The merger is expected to take several months to complete (closing is estimated
at the end of the second quarter 2005) and is subject to a number of approvals
including the approvals of Seabulk's and SEACOR's shareholders, and Hart Scott
Rodino (antitrust) clearance. The main terms of the merger agreement are
contained in the press release and a copy can be found on our corporate website

We are exited about the proposed merger in that it will create an energy
services and marine transportation company which will be focused on five main
business segments (1) offshore support vessels, (2) U.S. Jones Act tankers, (3)
inland rivers services (barges), (4) environmental services, and (5) helicopter
services. Additionally, the combined company will have investments in the
international product tanker and dry-cargo vessel markets.

The combined company will also enjoy an expanded geographic footprint and more
financial flexibility which should create a solid operating platform for the
future and give us an opportunity to serve our world-wide customers better than
ever before.

Once the combination has been approved we will have to integrate our offshore
support vessel operations and we are looking forward to welcoming the Seabulk
employees to our combined company. They have shown that they can run a high
quality operation and we believe they can add value to our combined future.

I realize there will be many questions that come up in a process such as this
and I would like to let you know that within a few weeks we will file a
so-called merger proxy statement with the SEC which will detail some of the
issues involved in this process and I would encourage all of you to read it when
it becomes available.
