The majestic sailing ship, the Coast Guard Cutter EAGLE, provides USCG Academy cadets and officer candidates with their first taste of sea and salt air. Built in Germany in 1936 and re-commissioned by the United States at the close of World War II, the EAGLE is the largest active tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes.


EAGLE's homeport is Baltimore, MD. In Summer 2019 her homeport will shift to New London, CT. For more information about the EAGLE's design, schedule, and Captain, please visit .
