You are cordially invited to attend US Coast Guard Station Gloucester’s Boating Safety Day.

Our boating safety partners involved in this event include Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Coast Guard Auxiliary, US Power Squadron, State of Massachusetts Marine Environmental Protection, commercial fishing safety representatives and many others.
