(D&A Marine Inc., PAC Marine LLC.)
Founded in 2001, Dupre Marine Transportation Incorporated is based in Houma, Louisiana.
Founded by Everard Dupre when he acquried his first vessel, a small 600 horsepower tug, and in 2002 Captain Dupre added a second vessel.
In 2011, Dupre’s daughter was a maid in the Houma Mardi Gras Krewe of Terreanians that year. At a Mardi Gras party, Dupre met the owner of another local towing company whose daughters were pages in Terreanians.
In time, that friend introduced Dupre to an operations team from the Kirby Corporation of Channelview, Texas. And by the next year, a repowered tug Kylie Dupre began working for the Kirby Corporation.
Currently, all of Dupre Marine Transportation Incorporated's vessels have been chartered to the Kirby Corporation.
