Our Team

William Kern - Owner/Captain
Capt. Billy was born in Atlanta, GA but raised in Texas. He joined the Navy after graduating high school. Capt Billy served 4 years in the Navy where he earned several commendations and medals including the Navy Marien Corp Achievement Medal for assisting with the recovery of the USS Cole. He could not resist the urge to get back to working on the water. He started to work for G&H Towing Co assisting ships to and from their moorings. He attained a 1600 Ton Master's License and reached Senior Capt in less than 7 years. He then found the opportunity to purchase Sea Tow Galveston from the previous owner in late 2009. Since then he and his wife Christina have been working hard to provide exceptional on water assistance to the boaters in and around Galveston Bay.

David Dillman - Captain
Captain David is from Houston and resides in Jamaica Beach, TX. He keeps one of our vessels behind his home and covers West Bay, San Luis Pass, Chocolate Bayou, and will also run to the Jetties. Captain Dave is a very seasoned Guide Fisherman and holds a wealth of fishing knowledge about Galveston Bay. We invite our members to call and ask for Captain David's fishing advise.
