Company Name: Island Tug and Barge Co.
First Name: Human
Last Name: Resources
Phone: 206-948-0403

Founded in 1979, Island Tug and Barge Co provides timely and quality marine towing throughout Puget Sound. Recently, Dave Wells and Frank Ellefsen, two long-time employees, purchased Island Tug & Barge. Today, our fleet varies from 4000 horsepower ocean towing vessels, to A-frame pusher tugs ideally suited for the marine construction industry. Island Tug and Barge has been providing towing services for most of the major construction projects in Puget Sound, including all three floating bridges.


We have a long history of projects that supposedly could not be done and we performed beyond customer expectations in every case. With the addition of the larger vessels and barges, our area of operation has grown to include towing on the West Coast, Alaska, Hawaii, and now the Western Hemisphere. Our barge fleet is capable of hauling containers or recycled and bulk materials, and we have various special project boats or barges available to fit your needs.


We are an approved towing contractor for the Department of Defense, State of Washington, and maintain our Central Contractor Registration for the U.S. government. Even though Island Tug and Barge has grown, our small company philosophy holds true for each and every customer. What we have going for us is our can do attitude and our ability to offer excellent service at a competitive rate.




Working at ITB can be great step to a rewarding career in the Maritime Industry.

We are looking to fill most positions aboard our tugs, with qualified and enthusiastic people.

Minimum qualifications include a Merchant Mariner Document, issued by the US Coast Guard; a Passport; and admissibility to Canada.

Residence in the Puget Sound, WA. area is preferable, as repatriation to your home town is at the employees cost.

Masters & Mates looking to work in the wheelhouse need to have the endorsement of "Master (or Mate/Pilot) of Towing Vessels" endorsed on their US Coast Guard license.
