Tow Boat U.S. For Pine Island And Charlotte Harbor
Up here on Pine Island I've joined Tow Boat U.S. I switched to their service simply because they have a larger presence on the waters that I fish. Two of their boats are based in Bokeelia and you can always see one standing by in Charlotte Harbor on the weekend. I haven't needed them yet but if I do I'm sure they'll be the fastest to respond around here.
Both services have the same annual membership dues, around $150 a year, and this is a total bargain. If you're not a member and need towed then expect to pay a minimum of $250, no matter how close to the dock you are. The average towing cost is actually closer to $600. If you're an avid boater and don't have a towing policy you're really asking for it.
