Harbor Ship Assist and Tanker Escort
San Francisco Bay Area
Since 1906, we’ve been providing tug services in the San Francisco Bay. Today, we serve the entire Bay Area, utilizing technologically advanced and powerful tugs manned by experienced crews. Tugboats are available to assist in the docking, undocking and towing of container ships, car carriers, tankers and other types of vessels entering and leaving this Pacific West Coast harbor gateway. We also provide tanker escort service to ensure safe passage in and out of the San Francisco Bay refinery ports. And for cargo traveling beyond the Bay Area, we also offer short- and long-haul ocean towing throughout the West Coast of the U.S. and around the world.
Our harbor tug services are backed by solid environmental, safety, and quality assurance programs, with all crews and shore-side support personnel dedicated to providing customers with the best service and the assurance that the job will be done right the first time, every time.
