Emergency Towing

We're an immediate response boat towing and salvage company, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We provide emergency assistance, fuel deliveries, jump starts, ungrounding assistance, and tows to repair facilities. All vessels are ACAPT certified, fully insured, and operated by licensed captains.

Spill Cleanup

We have the equipment to contain spills of fuel and oil. Our team is environmental cleanup state certified first responders, and our response trailer has hard and soft boom, plus absorbent materials. We can respond by land or sea to assist in containing a spill and cleaning it up.

Salvage & Refloat

In addition to towing, we're a fully equipped search and recovery salvage operation. We can provide all of the services needed for locating and recovering underwater losses. We also have experienced divers available for recovery, prop disentanglement and hull inspection.

Fuel Delivery, Battery Jumps & Repairs

If you run out of gas or diesel, then we'll deliver fuel to your location. If you have a dead battery, then we'll get you started. We also contract with a third party to provide repair services. We'll take care of the logistics and get you cruising ASAP.

Deliveries & Consultation

We have licensed and experienced captains available to safely deliver your vessel to any destination. We can also arrange local transportation, a hotel for overnight accommodations, and more.


With locations in Onset and Plymouth, our towing service area stretches from Buzzard's Bay, through the Cape Cod Canal, and into Cape Cod Bay.


Our quick-to-respond local towing fleet is based in Plymouth and Onset, with 5 towboats serving our loyal members. Our boats are tailored specifically to meet your towing and salvage needs.

All of our vessels carry dive gear, dewatering pumps, emergency patching materials, spare fuel and oil, jump starters and salvage gear. Our fleet is ready to respond to any situation that arises on the water.

We are a member of the Accredited for Commercial Assistance and Professional Towing (ACAPT) program, which recognizes professionals who are willing to adhere to the highest standards of service, training, and equipment.
