U.S. Coast Guard Station

September 18 @ 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The U.S. Coast Guard is one of the five armed forces of the United States and the only military organization within the Department of Homeland Security. Since 1790, the Coast Guard has safeguarded our nation’s maritime interests and environment around the world. The Coast Guard is an adaptable, responsive military force of maritime professionals whose broad legal authorities, capable assets, geographic diversity, and expansive partnerships provide a persistent presence along our rivers, in the ports, shore regions and on the high seas. Coast Guard presence and impact is local, regional, national and international. These attributes make the Coast Guard a unique instrument of maritime safety, security and environmental stewardship.  Our tour will include: The Captain of the Port building, The Rice Mill Building, Station Charleston, Aids to Navigation Team (ANT) Charleston, USCGC Anvil, USCGC Yellowfin, Small Boats and Utility Boats, Sector Engineering, and the Sector Buoy Yard. This is not an easy tour to set up, but well worth the trouble.  Tour attendees should wear comfortable shoes; please, ladies—no heels.  Picture ID’s required!  There is moderate walking as well as ability to get on and off the boat.
