Ocean Cargo Tows

Open ocean towing and logistics involves deep water tows and transfer of personnel and cargo from point A to point B. We have traveled as far as Africa, across the Gulf of Mexico and through the Panama Canal, up and down the West Coast and West Coast mainland to Hawaii and Wake Island.

We do an annual run from Honolulu to Wake Island and the outer Pacific islands to tow barges with supplies and goods for the Islands. The goods come from the mainland and arrive in Honolulu, get re-arranged, and we tow a barge with the specific goods out to Wake Island and surrounding islands (Guam, America Samoa, Midway, etc.).
