In February of 1987, we (Billy and Joan Cenac) started Caillou Island Towing Company Inc., with one boat, the M/V Virgie Cenac, named for our grandmother. We are the third generation of the Cenac family in the Marine Towing industry.


Our grandfather Alfred "Tenner" Cenac Sr. was in the business for many years. Next, our father Alfred "Al" Cenac Jr. was in the business from 1965 to 1987.  Our company has expanded considerably and now includes 13 vessels and several deck , spud, shale, and keyway barges. We are always looking to add to our fleet and can build to suit your needs on a long term lease. Through our extensive connections within the industry, we can find the perfect boat to fill your needs.  Please, drop by any time and say hello! We strive to provide an open door and  relaxed atmosphere for our customers.


At Caillou Island Towing, we provide you with over 75+ years of combined experience in the oilfield related marine towing business. Our boats are ready 24 hours a day to serve you.  We can provide you with a custom built vessel specifically designed to meet your company's needs. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service at a reasonable cost.
