My Local Sea Tow Captain

Capts. Bruce White & Matt Wilder
Email Us
From my initial conversation with you (Captain Bruce) to review the situation and scope a salvage plan, I knew I was dealing with the best in southern Maine… During the entire process leading up to the actual salvage, which was several days waiting for the tide, your communication with all parties including local officials, US Coast Guard and me was first rate. I just wanted to recognize the great job that you (Captain Bruce) and Captain Paul did. -

Mike Michaud - Captain
Capt Mike Michaud has lived in the Portland area for over 30 years. He currently resides with his wife of 10 years and 6 year old daughter. While possessing a large amount of local knowledge, Mike is thrilled to be able to provide a very important service to fellow boaters. "There's nothing more rewarding for me than seeing the relief on the member's faces when we arrive on scene to assist them. I've been in their position before and know how quickly situations can change. Seeing the yellow boat arrive can certainly provide an instant sense of security."

Paul Campbell - Captain and Sales
Paul joined Sea Tow Portland-Midcoast in 2009 after working for Sea Tow in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Our Boats

Sea Tow Alert - 26' Robalo

The latest addition to the fleet, Alert came from Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor in Florida in 2007. Alert is a big, powerful boat capable of speeds in excess of 40kts. With a deep vee hull, Alert is a smooth ride in the worst of conditions. Since coming to Maine, Alert has had new engines and electronics installed, and the pilothouse was rebuilt in aluminum by Sea Tow. Alert is the "swing-boat" and has no assigned patrol area; rather, it is assigned where needed, depending on boating activity. Alert can be redeployed quickly if necessary, and has made the transit between Portland and Boothbay Harbor in under an hour.

Sea Tow Parker - 25' Parker

This is the workhorse of Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast. Parker has been a reliable do-all asset for over 10 years. The large beam and expansive aft deck make this a stable platform for salvage and diving operations. Drawing only 15", Parker can navigate shallow waters easily. The full cabin makes Parker comfortable in all weather, with cabin heat installed for winter months. Parker regularly patrols Casco and Saco Bays.

Sea Tow Scooter - 24' SafeBoats

Originally built for the U.S. Coast Guard, Scooter has been a Sea Tow boat since 2000. The pilot-console was designed and installed by Sea Tow Portland in 2006, and with full canvas enclosure, this is an all-weather boat. This is not an inflatable in the traditional sense, as the sponsons are foam-filled. This design gives the fendering effect of an inflatable, with the durability of a hard-sided boat. Scooter regularly patrols in the Boothbay Harbor region.

The Water Taxi - 28' T. Jason 28

"The Water Taxi" is just that. Based in Portland Harbor, this boat provides transportation to and from the many islands in Casco Bay. In addition, "The Water Taxi" is a fully equipped Sea Tow Boat and salvage platform.
