Membership has its privileges

Our C-Tow membership plans are designed so you can enjoy stress-free boating and leave the worrying to us. With the largest on-water towing fleet in Canada, we are ready to respond when you need us — day or night. Your C-Tow membership provides 24/7 coverage and peace of mind.

For less than the cost of insurance deductibles, your membership fee includes critical services like fuel delivery, jump starts, minor repairs, fog shepherding and towing. Plus our customers love bonus features such as our free app, concierge trip planning and discounts on airport parking and accommodations.

For Commercial memberships, such as boat rentals, charters, co-ops, fishing, whale watching, etc., register all boats in your fleet and take advantage of having peace of mind for your business. Commercial boats are charged $100/hour for service calls and tows once registered.
