BoatUS Newport beach  Membership Benefits

  1. Call for a tow using TowBoatUSCONNECT. Simply open the app, touch the red “request a tow” button, answer a few easy questions, and your information and location will be sent to the closest TowBoatUS captain. You’ll receive a confirmation text within minutes. (NOTE: While anyone can use our app to call for a tow, remember that tows can cost into the thousands of dollars without a towing membership. Learn more about TowBoatUS towing plans here.)
  2. Share your location. Find a hot fishing spot, or want to give your location for a raft-up? Or maybe you just want a family member to know where you are for safety. The app shows your latitude and longitude and allows you to share it via Facebook, text, or email.
