About this Marine Transportation Company

Owned by third-generation descendants of Captain Joseph Bisso, E.N. Bisso & Son, Inc. can trace its roots back to 1880. The company was founded when Captain Bisso initiated a ferry service that would row passengers across the Mississippi River in downtown New Orleans, an enterprise that rapidly expanded to include steam-powered tugs and ferries.

It didn’t take long for the business to grow into a large venture that was soon sold to the state of Louisiana. In 1946, the company was divided, and Captain Edwin Napoleon Bisso formed his own division of the company with two heavy-lift derricks and six tugboats. He eventually named his off-shoot company “E.N. Bisso & Son, Inc.” That company has continued to grow and innovate, and is now a leading U.S. Gulf Coast tug and towing services provider.

E.N. Bisso’s primary functions include ship-assist services for docking and undocking ocean-going ships and barge/tug combination units. The company also provides harbor tug services made up of hourly towing, hold-in, stand-by, and escort services on an as-needed basis. E.N. Bisso’s service area includes the Lower Mississippi River, which spans five port jurisdictions, as well as Gulfport, MS, where the company provides its services as “Gulfport Towing.”

Additionally, E.N. Bisso provides offshore floating derrick crane services and towing services. The company maintains seven tugs in ABS class that are certified for deep-sea towing.
