Q:  Why did you get rid of  Tides and Weather in your app?

A:  Sea Tow’s mission is to be helpful to boaters. In a recent, survey Sea Tow members indicated they wanted us to replace the old Sea Tow app with a new one that is super-simple to use and the three most important things they wanted the app to feature were:

  1. Call for on-water assistance
  2. Display GPS coordinates
  3. Display location on a map

Our team decided to focus on what we do best and what our members asked for, on-water assistance, and to let the experts on weather and tides be the experts in their fields.  Over the past few years, there have been several tides and weather apps that have launched which are extremely comprehensive in the information they provide.  Our Sea Tow Captains have provided recommendations on their favorites which you can find at www.seatow.com/app. Sea Tow will continue to focus on being the experts in on-water assistance, meeting our members’ needs and providing other free services to be helpful to boaters such as our Automated Radio Check System and the Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Stands.
