Cool To tow or not to tow

Why is the BoatUS Towing Service unlimited saltwater coverage so much more expensive than the freshwater unlimited coverage? Unlimited freshwater coverage = $34 vs. saltwater unlimited coverage = $116. Are recovery expenses that much more expensive in saltwater vs. freshwater? I could see it if you were 100 miles offshore but then the Tow Service would not probably answer anyway.
I believe I would be required to buy the saltwater package anyhow, since I have one foot near the Pacific.
