Uh-oh, those navigational aids aren’t watching properly! After the last storm and deep freeze, many aids in the area were damaged by ice, moved off station or are altogether missing. Our partners at Aids to Navigation Team (ANT) Wanchese have been working diligently to get everything back in order as soon as possible and even came by to pick up some aids we had retrieved. If you are transiting the area, please use extreme caution and remember that safe navigation is ultimately the responsibility of the vessel’s operator. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the station at 252-441-6260.

Oregon Inlet Surf Drills this afternoon provided by #HurricaneMaria did not disappoint. Here are just a few images of this mornings training. The surf training was an excellent training opportunity for our break-in Surfman and boat crewman alike.
Another day in the life at a Coast Guard Surf Station. Today the unit took advantage of the available training conditions to operate in the surf conditions provided by the last few days of the storm. Successful day in the surf as recertification's were completed for surf tasks as well as driving time for our up incoming break-in Surfman and Heavy Weather Coxswains.
Been a little slack on the photos since I've been back home in NC, trout fishing has been good! Lots of undersized fish from 10" to just under 14" and some nice fish up to 20" mixed in. Been great tuna fishing on the Carly A as well. Nice to be able to fish inshore and offshore as well
After a brief haul out for a little maintenance, we are back in the water and ready to start fishing again. Thanks to Spencer's, Wild Cat Propellers and Gregory Poole for getting us up and running again👍👍 ... See moreSee less
Fishermen have been saying this for a few years now; you're constantly being told there are no sharks, yet fishermen, both commercial and sport are bringing a lot of fish heads and destroyed fish back to the boat!!! The sharks are thick!!!
a wind shift seemed to shut the bite down, where we were anyway, BUT the good news is no sharks today. speaking of wind, kite fishing was great last july, and it looks like it will be this year too. give us a call and lets go! ... See moreSee less
