A History in Harbor Towing on the Gulf Coast

Committed to outstanding safety and environmental performance, G & H Towing operates under the International Safety Management Code and American Waterway Operators Responsible Carrier Program.

We retain our position as a leader in the ever-changing maritime industry through our commitment to our people and the equipment they operate. Our crews work on the most technologically advanced towing vessels in the industry, like our new Z-Tech tugs.


It is the mission of G & H Towing Company to be the marine towing provider of choice for our customers by providing safe, reliable and efficient services to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers and our employees. It is our objective to recognize and embrace responsibility for the safe management, security, operation of the vessels in our fleet, and for the protection of the environment. The implementation of these objectives will be achieved through the Towing Safety Management System and Oil Transfer Procedures & Discharge Prevention and Response Plan, which provide specific guidelines and procedures to the concerned personnel.
