Service Details

Our fleet of three customized, fully-equipped Sea Tow boats are strategically positioned throughout the Upper Keys enabling us to achieve an average response time of under an hour. Our crew of Coast Guard-Licensed captains have over 80 combined years of on-water experience and are ready to respond when the unexpected happens. When not assisting Sea Tow members and other boaters, you will find our team patrolling popular boating areas including Ocean Reef, Nest Key, Molasses Reef and Tavernier Creek so we can respond quickly no matter the time of day. From Ocean Reef to Tavernier, oceanside, and Card Sound Bridge to Tavernier Creek, bayside, we are here to help. 

Unmatched Level of Service with Membership

Your boat towing membership is just the beginning. Sea Tow offers the most comprehensive member benefits available at one annual rate and no fine print.

  • Priority Service

    On-water service is what we do, in fact, it’s all we do. Having so many boats on the water means a local Sea Tow Captain is usually right nearby and able to get you fast. On average, in less than an hour.

  • Premier Boat Towing Fleet

    Boat towing, fuel delivery, jump-starts, ungroundings; our fleet of Sea Tow boats and equipment are to-of-the-line and built to respond.

  • Locally Owned and Operated

    Membership dollars stay local, in your community. Local Sea Tow franchises don’t get paid by the tow or by the hour, like our competition. Sea Tow franchises are paid when you become a member (and stay a member). It’s our job to keep you happy, which means taking care of you as quickly and efficiently as possible to keep you boating.

  • Ask Sea Tow

    Local navigation assistance, tides and weather, anchorages, mishap prevention tips, and on-water know-how; Sea Tow Captains are your resource on and off your boat.

  • Nationwide Coverage

    500+ ports nationwide, Sea Tow has you covered. No mileage caps on towing, and $5,000 out-of-all-areas reimbursement. When we say we are the “leader” in on-water assistance, we mean it.

  • No Distance, No Dollar Limits, No Out-of-Pocket

    Sea Tow Members are always served first. No waiting in line, no out-of-pocket expenses, no claims to submit to your insurance company and no distance or dollar limits in your home port area. *

  • Do you Fish Offshore?

    Inshore, offshore, destination sport fishing. You are covered. Ask your local captain how far offshore they go. We don’t cap offshore mileage – if we can go the extra mile for our members – we will.
