Description

*While New York Adventure Club does not charge for events hosted by the United States Coast Guard, a deposit will be required to discourage no-shows, which will be fully refunded upon attendance.


Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the United States Coast Guard Station New York on Staten Island, the largest boat station in the country, which is charged with ensuring the safety and security of the Port of New York and New Jersey by conducting Ports and Waterways Coastal Security, Search and Rescue, Environmental Protection, and Commercial and Recreational Boating Safety missions.

Led by a U.S. Coast Guard commanding officer, our unique experience will include:


  • A walk around the historic grounds, which was once the US Quarantine Station launch point for health officials inspecting incoming immigrant ships during the mid-1800s
  • A discussion around how the U.S. Coast Guard base effectively commands such a large geographical area 24/7, which includes the Port of New York/New Jersey (3rd largest U.S. port) and largest civilian population in a U.S. port area
  • A closer look at the roles and responsibilities of the United States Coast Guard, including Maritime Safety, Homeland Security, National Defense, and Environmental Protection
  • A visit to the docks to see nine multi-mission response boats up close
  • First-hand accounts of what it's like to serve in the Coast Guard


See you there!
