The National Weather Service is forecasting heavy weather along the California coast beginning Tuesday afternoon.

Some areas are forecasted to see breaking surf up to 35 feet along beaches and wind gusts up to 50 mph.

"The last thing we want to happen over the holiday is for someone to be lost at sea while boating or visiting one of our beautiful beaches," said Capt. Art Snyder, the 11th Coast Guard District chief of response. "Please watch out for friends and family who may not know how dangerous the ocean can be and help them stay safe. It would be best for boaters to avoid getting underway during these storms, and beachgoers should find a safe position away from the shoreline if they want to see the ocean or watch the waves."

The Coast Guard recommends that mariners and beachgoers take the following precautions:

- Monitor the weather and heed all marine/weather warnings
- Double check mooring lines on boats and take precautions for items stored loosely aboard
- Secure all paddle-craft, so they do not end up in the water and create a false distress
- Stay off rocks and jetties, as waves can be unpredictable
- Beachgoers should stay away from the shoreline, where large waves can wash people out to sea

Station Golden Gate’s close working relationship with local partners paid off with taking a firearm out of the hands of a prohibited person.

Troubled waters for Felon in possession of Shotgun

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol Unit, Coordination of Probation Enforcement (COPE) Team and USCG Station Golden Gate conducted a security wants and warrants check in the Richardson Bay marina area yesterday.

A nervous male subject was trying to leave a vessel that appeared to have multiple safety hazards visible from the outside of the boat. The law enforcement team boarded the boat to conduct a safety boat check and the male subject revealed he had a firearm on board.

The Shotgun and ammunition were located and secured. A records check of the male subject revealed he is a convicted felon. Law states convicted felons are prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and ammunition.

He was provided a courtesy transport to land where he was subsequently taken to the Marin county jail. #NotOnOurWatch

Today is the last day of #NationalSafeBoatingWeek. And while the Coast Guard trains everyday to help mariners, beach goers, and water sport enthusiasts who may find themselves in trouble, you can also help mitigate your risk by practicing all these tips.

Remember, dress for the water temperature, bring a VHF radio, wear a life jacket, and develop a float plan. These four things can help save a life.

Have a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!

Despite popular belief, your cellphone is not the most important item to bring where ever you go. While taking in some rays out on the water, a marine-band VHF radio is the best means of communication on the ocean where cellular tower signals are known to be weak.

Today members from Station Golden Gate were recognized by our Sector Commander for their response to an unresponsive person in the water near the Golden Gate Bridge. The crew responded and pulled the person from the water. The person was unresponsive at the time with life threatening injuries. The crew performed life saving CPR bringing them back to life. This person has made a full recovery and it would have not been possible if it were not for the crews vigilance and quick actions that saved their life. Bravo Zulu

Southern Marin Fire District

Strengthening our local partnership with boat training.

Northern #California #firedistrict has major nautical responsibility. @southernmarinfire covers vast parts of the #sanfrancisco #bay and #coastline along the #goldengatenationalpark Crews recently practiced towing a boat in distress, something that is easier said then done. Captain Matt Bouchard said a drifting vessel is a danger to others in the water. Two methods were practiced today along side the #USCG Station Golden Gate. More often than not these operations are done in rough waters and overall weather conditions. The training also helps with multi agency collaboration as SMFD crews often have to provide EMS out in the water. Remember to always carry life jackets and have a fully charged cell phone. Captain Bouchard made a point of saying to understand your #vessel and it’s capabilities prior to heading out into the bay or #openwater #boats #publicsafety California Professional Firefighters

Check out the great work by U.S. Coast Guard Station Golden Gate in this video shot by a windsurfer they rescued off San Francisco last week.

The rescued man was able to vector in the Coast Guard crew using a handheld VHF marine radio, which we urge all boaters, windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers and anyone else heading out on the water to have with them at all times.

Semper Paratus!

This accident off the shores of Baker Beach could have easily turned deadly according to U.S. Coast Guard Station Golden Gate. The Coast Guard explains why everyone involved in the accident survived and what made the difference between life and death. San Francisco Fire Department received the 911 call for help and responded with help. Coast Guard rescued the men and towed the sailboat. Southern Marin Fire District transported the victim who fell into the water to a hospital. #KTVU .

Hello, Not to raise an alarm unnecessarily, but the two mega yachts off of hurricane gulch, Sausalito are both flashing emergency strobe lights. Being almost 10:00am, I thought that was a bit odd.
Any families in the sunset needing some help with food and such please pm me
stationed there in 92'-94' on 44' MLB I would like to get in touch with my crewmembers - those were extreme conditions and an entire different Coast Guard regime to deal with hope your not too pampered ! no stress cards where I come from or political bs !!
Here's a film I made about the station that got on PBS nationwide.
For those interested in some Sta Golden Gate (Fort Point) history.....a message from the Board of Commissioners - Port of Brookings, OR regarding MLB 44385 ....."The old 44' has been sitting in our boat repair yard here in Brookings for quite a few years, and we are just now deciding its fate. The story of how it came to be here is rather long and involved... The short answer to your question is that the Port of Brookings Harbor owns the vessel, and the Board of Commissioners is currently exploring their options. At the last Special Meeting on Friday, 8/25/17 the Commission discussed the situation and opted to look into finding a place on port property to display the vessel, and also solicit a non-profit that would be interested in restoring/maintaining it. If we are unable to find a group willing to restore/maintain it, then we are looking at transferring the vessel to another port or organization with the financial means to take care of it.
