We’ve been providing peace-of-mind to pleasure boaters since 1984. We are the largest on-water towing fleet in Canada. From the Atlantic Maritimes, to Ontario’s lakes and rivers, to BC’s Pacific Coast, we know this country’s diverse water ways.

Your membership fee includes towing, fuel delivery, jump starts, fog shepherding, minor on-scene repairs, soft groundings and additional services. The annual fee is less than insurance deductibles, and members save money from the unpredictable costs of emergency response situations. Members also receive concierge trip planning services with local tips, as well as discounts on airport parking and accommodation.
