Tour a Coast Guard Cutter

A Coast Guard cutter will dock at the port and offer public tours over the July 4 weekend. The ship (name not released) will arrive Friday afternoon for the Navy Days LA celebration, a project of the United States Navy League.

The ship will pass by the Angels Gate Lighthouse at approximately 3 p.m. on July 3 and will dock at Berth 46 in the outer harbor at approximately 3:30 p.m., when a ship-side welcoming ceremony will be held.

The ship arrival and welcoming ceremony are open to the public at Berth 46, located at the end of Miner Street.

Free public tours will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 4, when the ship will be joined by the locally-stationed cutter George Cobb. To board the ship, you must be a U.S. citizen and show a valid photo I.D. Photography is permitted, but sandals, high heels and bags are not allowed.
