HOUSTON — The Coast Guard Cutter Dauntless is scheduled to arrive in Galveston, Texas, on Monday and will be open to the public throughout the week.

The free tours will be offered Monday thru Thursday, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Dauntless will be tied up at Pier 21, 2100 Harborside Dr. Galveston

Coast Guard Cutter Dauntless (WMEC-624) has a distinguished history of over 50 years of operational service to the nation and has been a stalwart supporter of the city of Galveston, having operated out of the seaport city from 1995 until her recent reassignment to Pensacola, Florida, in 2018.

Dauntless became the first cutter in history to seize one million pounds of marijuana and has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s premier law enforcement assets with 97 illegal narcotics busts to her credit, more than any other Coast Guard cutter. The cutter also plays a leading role in search and rescue, illegal migrant interdiction, international fisheries enforcement activities, serving the public and embodying the Spanish phrase that serves as her motto, “Sin Miedo” or “without fear.”
