Meet the Coast Guard service members who help keep our country safe, break ice to keep shipping lanes open, do search and rescue missions, and take care of navigational aids and buoys throughout the Great Lakes.  

Learn about the Coast Guard, and the service members who transfer in and out of Cheboygan every 2-3 years. Hear stories about their previous stations, and the varied coastal waters they have patrolled. See line-throwing demonstrations and more.       

Learn about the Coast Guard Auxiliary, and how they support the Coast Guard mission. Civilians are encouraged to join.  No boat is required.       

See the Cheboygan police and fire support teams, with information and demonstrations for visitors.       

The ship is stationed at 632 Coast Guard Drive, Cheboygan, MI 49721
