In the modern era, a ship is equipped with all the modern communication equipment, like VHF telephony, MF radio telephony, HF telephony. Besides that, seafarers need a specific communication for transferring information when berthing and cast off situation. Sea communication is chosen, and needed to be explored in this research: what channel, medium and code as the concept of communication are used in berthing and cast off situation. In conducting of the study, this research used qualitative approach for unfolding the channel, medium and code as the concept of communication. The subject of the study was Semarang pilot and the ocean going ship. In this research used two ships with different length, the first she has length less than 200 metre and the other more 200 metre. The research recorded the communication when the ship entered to the harbour and cast off from the harbour. The result revealed that in berthing MV. Jessica used “command” 22 times, in cast off only 5 times, MV. Jo Brevick used 20 times command in berthing and in cass off only 5 times too. It points out that the command in berthing gave more than cast off situation.
