Coast Guard Cutter FARALLON (WPB-1301)

Primary mission is law enforcement and search and rescue

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter FARALLON, like the other six 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).
