Proudly Canadian.

C-Tow Marine Assistance Ltd. is proudly Canadian owned and operated. So why is this important? Because we know the complexity of the waterways we service. These are the same waterways our Captains travel each and every day.

Largest fleet in Canada.

For over 35 years, C-Tow has been a boater’s best friend. We have grown from our humble beginnings on the West Coast of British Columbia to operating the largest on-water towing fleet in Canada. This growth has been achieved without compromising safety or customer service – which we know are important to you.

Commited to service.

At C-Tow, we aren’t content to just be Canada’s leading marine assistance company. We are also committed to providing unmatched personal service to our customers who depend upon us from coast-to-coast.

How To Become A C-Tow Captain


Serving Canadian boaters since 1984

C-Tow Marine Assistance Ltd. was founded in 1984 by Captain John MacDonald on Bowen Island, just outside of Vancouver, BC. Captain MacDonald saw an opportunity to fill a gap left by a change in the Canadian Coast Guard’s policy to assisting only vessels in immediate distress. His solution was to create a marine assistance company for Canadian boaters – like a tow truck on the water – the first of its kind in Canada.

Since then we’ve grown from 1 vessel to over 30 vessels working to keep boaters safe in Canada. Our captains are familiar with Canadian waters, with updated training and maps. What continues to separate us from our competitors is our exceptional Captains who are highly familiar with Canadian water.

Today, C-Tow continues to work closely with the Canadian Coast Guard providing boaters in non-distress situations with marine assistance. And we’re once again at the forefront of innovation with our free smartphone app that automatically transmits a customer’s longitude and latitude coordinates to C-Tow dispatch.
