Bisso Towboat Co. Inc. | Since 1890

The Mighty Mississippi Has Met Its Match.

As the Mississippi River snakes its way to the Gulf, it has quite a few surprises in store. From shifting sandbars, treacherous curves and challenging currents to changing weather conditions and water levels. Bisso Towboat Company has the right combination of brain power and horsepower to take on the Mighty Mississippi and win. We operate the most powerful and maneuverable fleet of ship-assist tugs at work on the river today. And we’ve been doing it since 1890. Bisso's modern Z-drive, triple-screw and twin-screw tugs provide the horsepower and precision guidance it takes to get the job done.

Our experienced captains and crews know the river like the backs of their hands. All have been given comprehensive safety training, and our entire fleet of vessels has been certified to ISM compliance by ABS.
