Start off its one of the Japanese K Line(Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd ) vessels looks like 3 names on bow so would guess its one of the Bridge Boats possibly James River Bridge

Certainly 'K' Line and three names on the bow - she's one of the early vessels in 'K' Line's trade to the west coast North America and I believe the third word in the name is "Bridge". Maybe "Seven Seas Bridge" of 1975?

Agree with that as after blowing up the photo the second name is 4 letters as I originally thought 5

Well done Rick - and if you can also name the small dolphin swimming off the port bow, it would help wrap up the text.. (Jester)
