Coast Guard Cutter 

A fixture on the Detroit River since 1874 and a unique representation of Detroit’s distinction as being an international border, the United States Coast Guard will have a presence this year at GM River Days.  The USCGC BRISTOL BAY (WTGB-102) will be onsite and free to tour during the festival. The cutter will be docked at GM Plaza. Tours take place on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 from 11am-5 pm. 

 

The primary mission of USCGC BRISTOL BAY (WTGB-102) is icebreaking. The 140-foot cutter, which is homeported in Detroit, conducts its icebreaking mission in the Great Lakes.
