This large tug was built in 1972 by Collingwood Shipyards as the Pointe aux Basques for Eastern Canada Towing. Eastern Canada Towing was eventually sold to Svitzer Towing Canada, but the tug retained her name. In 2013, she was sold to Ocean Group of Quebec, QC and renamed Ocean Basques.

Ocean Basques is currently based in Trois-Rivieres, QC, where she provides ship docking and towing services.
