See what real members are saying:

He got us safely back to the boat ramp with no problems. He was even able to give us the phone number of the taxi cab company for us to call for a ride back to our timeshare. Capt. Steve was great! For this reason, we will always remain faithful member Richard & Judy Maugeri, Clearwater, FL Members Since 1999
He came to the rescue once again and was able to get the boat out and tow them to the local marina, even tried to help them in the engine room. We just can’t say enough about him and we are so thankful to have a Sea Tow membership. Karen Rivera, Bradenton, FL Member Since 2007

Membership FAQs

How does membership differ from boat insurance?

Although commonly referred to as such, a Sea Tow membership is not insurance. It's assurance. We'll come to your aid when things go wrong -- towing you home, delivering fuel, or pulling you off a sandbar so you can get back on your way. It's our job to help ensure your safety and we take that seriously.

Boat insurance is intended to protect very significant investments -your boat, electronics and gear, etc. - because disasters strike unexpectedly. Many boaters choose to skip the insurance, but it is a huge risk to be left without the means to repair or replace the boat you've worked so hard to acquire, let alone handle legal costs should you be faced with lawsuits after an accident.
