About Us

The Kildall Agency, the oldest and largest independent agency specializing in Mariners professional insurance (popularly known as “license insurance”), was established in 1938 by one of the Pacific Northwest’s best known and most respected maritime families.


Tom-PhotoFor over 60 years the Kildall Navigation School, founded by this seafaring Seattle clan in 1926, sent forth trained professionals to man every type of commercial vessel flying the U.S. flag.

Tom Kildall, who has headed the agency since 1980, represents the fourth generation to insure livelihoods and professional reputations of American mariners.

Today the Kildall Agency insures individual licensed mariners and certified tankerman employed aboard every kind of vessel found in the U.S. and Canadian maritime industries. Kildall also insures a variety of groups including ferry systems, pilot groups, civil, international maritime corporations, charter boats, fishing vessels, tall ships, tug and barge, casino boats, tankers, supply vessels, vessel assist, cruise vessels and mariner organizations.

What makes Kildall Agency unique is what we call the “Agent Advantage”. It’s our family tradition, established over generations, of doing whatever it takes to serve our clients and protect their interests. We help you choose the best policy and coverages at the lowest price possible. The Kildall Agency has access to all companies now underwriting Mariners professional insurance in the United States. Our clients will be happy to tell you that we go the extra mile to make sure they are all treated well by everybody in the process including the insuring companies, legal firms and, if all goes well the government agencies involved.

As a Kildall insured, you’ll be able to reach us, 365 days a year, to ask a question, discuss a problem or report a claim. It costs no more to insure through Kildall than to insure anywhere else-you just get more.

Kildall insures more USCG and State licenses than any other broker or agent in the US.
