About Us

Sea Tow Smith Mountain Lake is a marine assistance company owned and operated by Capts. Rick and Nancy Ellett. Sea Tow operates like AAA except on the water. Members receive free unlimited assistance 24/7/365 which includes unlimited tows, jump starts, fuel drops, dock-to-dock tows, and soft ungroundings. Sea Tow is a nationwide franchise which came to Smith Mountain Lake in 2009. Sea Tow also assists non-members on a fee for service basis but members always come first. We have four vessels on Smith Mountain Lake each built at the factory as commercial tow vessels. We have thirteen U S Coast Guard licensed professional captains and we are adequately insured. Lake membership costs 46 cents per day and covers all the boats you own, borrow, or rent, and covers someone else operating your boat; and is unlimited. Sea Tow members also receive discounts at various businesses and are invited to free member events. Sea Tow is a family operated business. We live here and love the lake community and try to support charitable events and water safety. Sea Tow is unique in that our lake members do not have to be stranded on the lake, we also offer free dock-to-dock tows to members that need their boat moved and offer free jump starts at member's docks or at boat ramps. We also have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to raise sunken boats and we work with insurance companies to negotiate the fee for salvages. Call Capt. Rick at Sea Tow today at 540-719-5555 x 2 or visit us at for details.
