What is a Safe/Sea Membership
As a Safe/Sea Premier member, you are provided with free towing for your vessel if it becomes disabled, runs out of fuel, or has a dead battery while away from its home dock or mooring. Your vessel will be restarted or towed to its home dock, mooring, or port of your choice in Rhode Island waters when your vessel’s disablement occurs in Rhode Island waters.

Why Choose Safe/Sea
Our Captains have over one hundred years of combined experience in the marine assistance industry, and each has personally conducted thousands of tows. With one of our captains at the helm, you can be sure that your journey home and into the dock will be trouble and stress free.
Safe/Sea is able to provide the best coverage to Rhode Island area boaters. We are the only company to keep vessels on station in Narragansett Bay, Point Judith, and Block Island. As a Safe/Sea member, you can rest assured that our fleet of custom built and purpose built rescue towboats are ready and able should you ever need our help.
Professional towing rates can range from $300 to $550 per hour, including not only the time spent with you, but also the time traveled from and back to the rescue boat’s home dock. Without the free on-the-water towing provided by a Safe/Sea membership, this cost will have to come directly out of your pocket!
