The United States Coast Guard Cutter Walnut (WLB-205) is a 225 foot Sea Going Buoy Tender home-ported in Honolulu, Hawaii. She is the 5th “A” Class buoy tender of the Coast Guard’s Juniper Class buoy tender fleet. Walnut’s primary mission is to maintain Aids to Navigation (ATON) utilizing the Dynamic Positioning System of the ship or Walnut’s Dive Team. Other missions that Walnut performs are: Maritime Law Enforcement, Port/Waterways and Coastal Security, Search and Rescue and Environmental Protection.
Walnut is equipped with many technologically advanced navigation, safety and ship-handling systems that allow us to operate more efficiently and with greater safety. With fewer crew then normally associated with a cutter of our size, Walnut successfully accomplishes her mission.
