Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay to offer free, public tours in Grand Haven

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay is scheduled to provide free public tours during a visit to Grand Haven, Mich., Saturday.

The cutter will be moored near Coast Guard Sector Field Office Grand Haven, and open to the public from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m.

Cutter Mobile Bay, a 140-foot ice-breaking tug combined with a 120-foot aids-to-navigation barge, homeported in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., is one of only two 140-foot tug-and-barge combinations in the Coast Guard. The crew of the Mobile Bay maintains more than 110 ATON during the spring and fall, and supports the Coast Guard’s domestic ice breaking mission during the winter months.

“The crew of the Mobile Bay is grateful for constant and overwhelming support from the public in the Great Lakes region,” said Lt. Cmdr. John Stone, commanding officer of Cutter Mobile Bay. “Everyone aboard is looking forward to opening Mobile Bay’s doors to the public and visiting with the people of Grand Haven.”
