Atlantic Coast Marine Group helps with towing and salvage situations through TowBoat US and environmental services through through Atlantic Coast Marine Response. Owner, Captain Lee Syes started as  a TowBoat US captain and later opened Atlantic Coast Marine Group becoming one of their licensed agents, and subsequently opened ACMR as well. 


ACMR teams and management personnel have a minimum of 40-Hour Hazwoper, First Aid and CPR. Most of our personnel also have confined space, Air PAC and EMSexperience and training. Our goal is to provide our clients with unparalleled services and safety while on the job.

TowBoatUS currently operates 20 ports in NC with 12 of the ports on the NC coast. More towing ports means more towing assistance at the ready, which equals less wait time when you need assistance on the water.

TowBoatUS in Beaufort, NC operates under the company of Atlantic Coast Marine Group, Inc. Capt Lee Sykes is President / Owner / Operator of the company and has been in the towing and marine salvage business for almost 10 years.

In May of 2011 TowBoatUS expanded their operations to include TowBoat Jordan Lake (and the surrounding areas) and is now operating on Falls Lake, Lake Gaston and Kerr Lake. In 2012 TowBoatUS Beaufort expanded operations to include Swansboro! We have two captains dedicated to the Swansboro area working out of Caspers Marina. New ports for the NC Lakes in 2015 are High Rock Lake and Smith Mt Lake (in VA).

Our NC Lakes Division covers the areas of Jordan Lake, Falls Lake, Kerr Lake, Lake Gaston, High Rock Lake and NOW Smith Mountain Lake! But remember now - no matter where you boat in the United States you are covered (up to your per incident level) if you have a TowBoatUS membership.For more details about your membership coverages on the NC Lakes call locally 919-303-1669.

TowBoatUS Beaufort covers the areas along the ICW from "The Wiggles" up Adams Creek down through Swansboro to the Onslow Swing Bridge. Off shore coverage is up to 75 miles (WE GO TO BIG ROCK!). Keep in mind though that you are covered no matter where you boat in the United States. One membership covers you on any recreational boat you own (and as many as you own), borrow or happen to rent for the day. Call for more details 252-728-5088!

More Ports + More Boats = Faster Response Time!
