Primary mission is law enforcement and search and rescue

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter FARALLON, like the other four patrol boats based in San Juan, performs a variety of Coast Guard missions. A primary focus has been the interdiction of illegal migrants seeking to enter the United States in small, un-seaworthy wooden boats called yolas.  In addition to Alien Migration Interdiction Operations (AMIO), we conduct anti-drug smuggling patrols, fisheries law enforcement patrols, and we are always on standby for Search and Rescue (SAR).

Billet Structure:

USCGC FARALLON is commanded by a Lieutenant (LT). The Executive Officer is a Lieutenant, Junior Grade (LTJG). The remainder of the billet structure is similar to other 110-foot patrol boats with Deck and Operations Departments being headed by BM1s, and Engineering by a MKC.  There are a total of 15 enlisted billets and two officer billets.
