Being a relatively new boat owner/ operator I purchased the services of Sea Tow. The first time out my batteries died and of course had to use the app. No problems at all help was there in 15 minutes.
Recently last month during a boat move I had engine trouble.
Called SeaTow again and like the first time they were there in no time. The Captain of SeaTow this time was Danny. He found me with no problem and affectively towed me back to my home port.
I cannot say enough good about the services and app

Needs a lot of work by PeterMichaels
Navigating the app is impossible- tiny symbols are not intuitive.
Can’t enter the location you want easily if at all.
Forgets you (username and password) every time you open it.
Lots of info, but hard to get what you want.
Really terrible app.
App clearly not tested by sea tow by Paragone
The app constantly crashes, goes into a loop, times out. Don't waste your time...this is very disappointing for a good company. SeaTow, hire some competent software engineers...you should be embarrassed!
It’s Terrible by Pathfinder2400
The app never remembers my membership number or password and it doesn’t recognize my location as being valid. Therefore the weather is not available. It makes me wonder if I could be located in an emergency. Don’t bother wasting your phone memory on this app.
Great Company Horrible Ap by Bawls21
Don’t waste your time here. Ap doesn’t function serves zero purpose. They should have a discussion with their web manager /designer. Reset password over and over only to be told exp date is a bad request . Just annoying.
Sea Tow needs to do a better job by drhjb
As a new member very disappointed in the App. It crashes and doesn't function at all. I would hate to have to depend on it if o had an emergency
When are you going to fix this app? by terriblyupset
Please do something or I will switch to “you know who”.
Not impressed by Seatow can do better
It doesn’t do anything that isn’t done as well or better by other apps. Also, inexplicably, it requires background access to location services for full functionality. So much for privacy. You don’t need this app. No one does.
Terrible App by N3526W
Nothing worked. Tried to renew membership. Shows a year ago, not current. Could not update phone number. One of the worst apps I have ever tried to use.
Out of date app by Fair at best
App does not update weather in the printed report
Has been stuck on se winds 15-20kt
Gusts to 25 kt
Get your act together
App doesn’t work. Period. None of it. by IronMike LB
The app let me login, and promptly told me my membership was expired. (Tide charts didn’t work either, nor did any menu items.)
For a minute, I thought it may be true, but then I remembered , early this season I put brand new Seatow stickers with my Member ID on my boat, as well as a new Membership Card.
Point is, I’m about to make a trip home from Fire Island, where I’d strongly prefer to have Sea Tow membership in effect —and I was about to renew anyway.
Errors where the app developer benefits financially from their mistakes are a real concern. While I don’t want to think there is any kind of fraud involved, and have no proof there is —nonetheless, I do read the only review that says someone else was double charged, and this is a problem.
I’d go right to the NYS Attorney General if they double billed, and potentially on a systemic basis, and didn’t do the right thing and resolve it with an apology. Tow Boat.us is everywhere I see SeaTow —and while my limited experience with SeTow on the water has been quite good —the need to either fix or remove the app from the app store.
The bad experience and bad faith in leaving it as is is tarnishing the brand without a doubt.
You guys are in a business where your customers have to trust that you’ll be there when you need them... one bad experience is all it takes to undermine that trust and take a “goldmine” customer who blindly renews every year, and really doesn’t use you (eg, no problems) and sends the directly to the highly visible competition.
Please fix your app, customer services fe related to it, and keep your reputation where it needs to be... or better yet, just remove it from the app store. Too many other apps do what yours is supposed to.
App is not full functioning and crashes repeatedly by J R Roman
The app has all kinds of problems: unable to login, can’t get membership information to load, etc. and it crashes constantly. Thank god the actual service is great because this app would run them out of business otherwise!
Buggier than a corpse by Tbirdsher
Please, please FIX THIS APP! I have been trying to pay y’all for a couple months. Now my membership is expired because your app is buggy!
Doesn’t work by Mfcarbophat
Nothing on this app works besides being able to sign in. Not worth the time invested.
Really? by Tbuxripoff
Can’t even get past the login screen. I enter my username and hit go and nothing happens. Why would you send out a pamphlet advertising your app when it’s obviously not functional?
John Pierce by tom 1945
The app is very confusing. Keeps asking for the same info over and over. Only worthwhile part is the tide tables.
App never works by DebFromCT
So frustrating! App is non-functional except to show where Sea Tow boats are.
App does not work by Chromegunz
Unable to even log on to app. So yes the rest of the reviews are correct. Serious technical issues. Not user friendly. Pretty much pointless.
Nothing works by jaxrons
Worst app ever
Worst by billbuoy23
Never bothered to rate an app before, but have been a member for several years and don’t appreciate that this is still such a terrible app, considering switching to Tow Boat US because of it
Junk by R Swift
This app is terrible
Sea Tow should be embarrassed
Terrible App. by 109783546
Terrible App lot of functional issues. Needs a lot of improvements.
Waste of time by cjeast24
I downloaded the app after the boat dealer told me I get a free 6 month trial membership. Well after not being able to access app features their tech support advised me
“The app can be used by members as well as boaters who are not Sea Tow members. We do have your short term membership in our files and after that is renewed for a one year paid membership you can contact us and request that your member file be linked to your app profile so that you can log in and view your membership information on the app.”
I guess that means it’s not really a trial membership.
Useless app by Johnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnie
I signed up for SeaTow just in case and was excited to see it included an app. Unfortunately the app is pretty useless. For starters, it’s very confusing and difficult to decipher. I don’t see weather updates that include current wave heights, projected wave heights, or other crucial info like near by lightning warnings or wind gusts readings. I went to a boat show last winter and the SeaTow rep said these are common complaints that will be addressed. Well, summer is at hand and no fixes. Still a useless app.
We can do better by Endeavour45C
SeaTow should be mildly embarrassed to have this published and in use. Honestly this app runs like a beta version that was never fully completed. Numerous bugs take away from what could be a great app. Does not always synchronize membership information, billing and expiration, or tidal charts. Spotty at best but great potential.
Not supported not functional by pyrofyter70
The app has not been updated nor is it functional not sure why they have not supported a viable app.
Terrible app by jwm05
One of the worst apps ever.
Totally nonfunctional wasted effort by burning daylight again
This app does not have any function that works. I notified customer service to no avail Worthless
OMG!! by hhhggggghhffds
Frustrating to say the least. Can not create an account for an existing membership. I hope their captains are better than their software developers, else we will all be in serious trouble.
Boat US is Better by GWLESQ
This App isn’t even worth downloading. Does not work. SeaTow Really!!!
Unreliable, Unresponsive, Useless by Pinballwizard2012
For two years in a few I reported numerous issues with the app. No response and no fix!
Too many bugs by Skier Guy 23
Unfortunately this App has too many bugs and issues. Hope they can get it up to speed sooner than later.
Terrible APP by Reyemm
This APP is useless
Horrible app! by MCFussell
The only thing this app is good for is having your Seatow card on hand without needing the physical card. It does not allow you account or payment updates - you still have to call in for that. 😡
Lame App by mvwashashore
Just call, don’t waste time w/ app
Useless App by tow me
Most of the time app won’t open on my iPhone
Seatow app by larrymass1952
It was terrible two years ago when I switched to BoatUs. Their AP is fantastic. Unfortunately I moved to an area where BoatUs is not available so I have an app that I wouldn’t use. Terrible terrible terrible
Joined 6 weeks and still haven’t received my card😖
Crap by capt jackal
Does not work on iPhone X
Needs work. by Tuna buster
Doesn’t update if you make changes on line. For example, renewing membership never updates on the app.
Terrible. by willr612
SeaTow needs to get their money back and fire whoever is responsible for this garbage. Tried to get info and am pressured to download the app and create account. Done, now I cannot login, request reset and still cannot access. Never worked so hard to give somebody money....
Poor by Southern Snowball
Very poor app for a company like Sea Tow. Information often incorrect or inaccurate. Much improvement needed
Pathetic! by TylerChristopher
I have complained over and over again about this app. I have tried this on five different telephones, of which none of them function. Absolutely pathetic
Not ready for prime time by Ultsses
Installed and then found app not fully functional. Entered info on my account and it couldn’t process. Expiration date screen shows as gray area (usually indicating a non active area). It did enter the expiration date but would not take the data. Hourly weather indicated as “unavailable”. As I said above, not ready for prime time.
Worked great for me by Sjay29
Lost an entire hub assembly coming home, one call from the app and police and tow truck were dispatched to get me home safe and sound for no charge, best Ins I ever bought
Terrible by Captn CBR
I can login from two devices and it gives me different expiration dates. With the technology that is available today, it is a some that this app can’t keep your membership info correct.
Facmo by Facmo
Glitchy and unstable. Had to re-enter information multiple times.
Terrible App by CN Captain
The boating season kicks off again this weekend. And like last year I turned to my SeaTow app for tide and weather information. While I thought the app was worthless last year, my experience this year has been even worse. It states my membership expired 4/28/2018, which is inaccurate as it was renewed on 3/24/2018 (the website has it correctly). Location services are enabled on my phone for the app, but the message on screen states just the opposite. And I have been kicked off the app 10 times this morning. I deleted and reinstalled. Same results. The app is worthless and not worth the time to even bother with. This is at least two years running.
Worthless by Dalpilot
Somebody from SeaTow should try BoatUS app, it actually works, unlike this piece of junk.
Worst app ever tried to use by u wont accept bad reviews
Absolutely does not function in any capacity fractious every time I try to get any information sorry I paid the money to subscribe to Sea Tow this is absolutely uselessness
