Is a Sea Company similar to what we call Marines?

No.  As far as I can tell from looking at Spanish Army web articles, the sea companies are sort of the flip side of Marines.  They’re sailors belonging to the army rather than soldiers belonging to the navy.  The units seem to have begun circa 1500 to do what nowadays would be called "logistics over the shore," hauling supplies to support army units from ships offshore in small boats and over the beach.  They’re still logistic support units and wear naval uniforms, apparently now merely for historical reasons, but are part of the army.

 

The Spanish equivalent of the USMC and Royal Marines is the Infanteria de Marina, and comes under command of the Spanish Navy.

The is also a Sea Company of Ceuta, but I haven’t found any Coat of Arms for this Company but it will certainly incorporate the Anchor and Sword in some way.

Anti Tank Defence Company of the Legion.

Intelligence Company of the Legion. The Legion Emblem is placed above the Lances of Intelligence Units.

 

The Legion was formed following the pattern of the French Foreign Legion, by Lieutenant Colonel José Millán-Astray in 1920. Following a recent peridod when the Legion was prohibited in recruiting abroad, It is currently also accepting recruits from Latin America and Equatorial Guinea.

Heralder has now added the Arms of the Ceuta Sea Company, the sister Unit of the Mellila Sea Company shown earlier. It includes the Sword and Anchor of the Sea Companies and a gyrony brodure from the Arms of the City of Ceuta. It is however in Gules and Argent instead of the city’s Sable and Argent.

The Bands hanging from the Shield is from dexter to sinister the Collective Military Medal and probably some award from the City of Ceuta.
