In 2007, Sea Tow Services International, Inc. founder, Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer, was concerned about the number of preventable boating-related accidents, injuries and deaths and decided to create a non-profit organization that could directly address these issues through education and awareness. The resulting national public service organization received 501(c)(3) nonprofit status and was named the Sea Tow Foundation.



The Sea Tow Foundation mission is to promote safe boating practices that directly reduce accidents, fatalities and property damage related to recreational boating.
