About Us

Our Mission

Mike Hooks, LLC is focused on preserving America’s natural resources, maintaining navigable waterways, and investing in our family of employees.

Our History


Our family owned and operated business was founded in 1945. Since the very beginning, Mike Hooks has provided dredging services on a variety of private and public marine construction contracts along the Gulf Coast.

In 1955, the company moved to the current location and was officially incorporated in 1957. The 10-acre yard is conveniently positioned off the Calcasieu Ship Channel in Westlake, LA. With access to the Calcasieu River and Intracoastal Waterway, Hooks’ fleet of dredges can quickly mobilize to any point along the Gulf Coast.

From our humble beginnings through today, the company’s fleet of hydraulic cutterhead dredges continues to provide services throughout the Gulf Coast including navigable waterway maintenance, wetland restoration, beach nourishment, harbor excavation, and new construction.
