Keeping British Columbia's natural beauty while supporting Canada's economy

Tug Capacity

British Columbia is fortunate in having two world class tug operators covering the major traffic areas of the coastline in the form of Seaspan Marine and Saam Smit Marine.

Both companies have invested heavily to provide our major ports with an enviable level of tug assistance to both incoming and outbound vessels.

Tug escorts are used in the Lower Mainland to ensure the safe transit of tankers.
