Our main business activity is ship-assist services for the docking and undocking of ocean-going vessels and tug/barge units. Harbor tug services comprise hourly towing, escort, hold-in and stand-by services as may be required. The scope of these operations encompasses the Lower Mississippi River (LMR) spanning five port jurisdictions as well as Gulfport, Mississippi – where we do business as Gulfport Towing – and Port Canaveral, Florida – doing business as E.N. Bisso Canaveral Inc.
Our fleet of 19 tugs features a blend of seven tractor-class/equivalent tugs and conventional twin-screw tugs. Whatever challenge the mighty Mississippi may present, E.N. BISSO has the optimal equipment to serve the varied needs of the many types of cargo vessels calling the country’s largest port complex.
E.N. BISSO also provides offshore towing services which can be handled by seven tugs we maintain ABS-classed and certified for ocean towing. While offshore tug projects are typically performed in coastal waters, our tugs have gone further afield in recent years, including Canada, Mexico, Caribbean, Central and South America.
