Ryan Helmig – Owner / Captain
Captain Helmig has been in the boating industry since 1994 where he started his towing career at Sea Tow Pensacola. After earning the title of Captain in 1999, Helmig has been at the helm of a tow boat ever since. Helmig’s vast experience, love for the water and adventuresome attitude makes him an incredible resource for his members. Ryan knows the importance of family time on the water and so when a member breaks down or needs help, he does his best to get them back to enjoying their day as fast as possible!
When Captain Helmig is not servicing members, he takes every chance to get his family of 4 on the water with he and his wife. They love sailing, spear-fishing and surfing – and it truly is a family affair!
And when Helmig needs to dry out from the saltwater– you can find him on the soccer field!
Dan Friedman – Captain
Captain Friedman has been boating since he could remember, as a kid he was always running around with the local posse on his jon boat fishing around the Stuart area. He has grown up sailing and proceeded in that sport to high school nationals and raced all around the country. Danny moved to Key West where he attended FL Keys Community College for a Marine Engineering degree and got his 100 ton Master Captains License. After 3 years in the Keys, Danny moved back to Stuart and started working as full time mate on a 78' Motor Yacht for a private family. After 5 years on the motor yacht, Danny started with Sea Tow Sebastian for 2 years and then went back to the Keys to run a boat for Sea Tow Lower Keys for a couple months. Danny wanted to be back in his home town where Ryan offered him a full time position at Sea Tow Treasure Coast and Danny has been back here since 2018.
When Danny is not on a Sea Tow boat, the first place you can find him on his 17’ twin Vee with his fiancé fishing, diving, or running their dogs around at the sandbar.
