not sure if this is the same company but i worked with a engineer about 2 years ago that sailed on the seismic vessel named black seal ?
also my father sailed on a ship called the Arctic seal (sealfleat) i believe.

Other boats in the fleet were, Indian Seal, Baffin Seal, Bering Seal and Ross Seal amongst others.
