USCG Station San Juan

Excellence in Operations and Support Through Teamwork

Station San Juan

Overlooking Bahia de San Juan, Station San Juan is located just outside the walls of the old city of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Station San Juan was established in 1993 and is currently the only CG Search and Rescue station in the Caribbean. We also have Station St. Thomas and Station St. Croix as detachments here in the Caribbean. These stations are responsible for Search and Rescue, Homeland Security and Law Enforcement operations which includes Drug/Migrant Interdiction, Fisheries enforcement and recreational boating safety. Station San Juan also conducts escorts of cruise ships and some Navy assets entering and departing San Juan Bay.

Station personnel monitor the area of responsibility with six search and rescue platforms which include a 45ft Response Boat Medium (RBM), three 33ft Special Purpose Craft–Law Enforcement (SPC-LE), and two 25ft Homeland Security Boats.

These surface assets and the "Always Ready" attitude of the members, allow Station San Juan to be "Semper Paratus" and answer the needs of the people throughout Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
