Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay is responsible for Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Marine Safety, Marine Environmental Protection and other missions along 250 miles of the Northern California coastline.  When able, we also enjoy providing Coast Guard representation and services to our local community.  In order to accommodate these services, we require 30-day notice.
