USCG Cutter Alex Haley Ends Deployment

The crew of the US Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley returned to Kodiak Wednesday following a successful 68-day deployment patrolling more than 12,000 miles throughout the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands.

 

Alex Haley, known as the “Bulldog of the Bering,” departed Kodiak in July and spent the last two months conducting operations in the Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands. During the deployment, Alex Haley’s crew performed more than 40 at sea domestic fisheries enforcement boardings, four search and rescue cases, and one rescue and assistance operation.

The Alex Haley crew participated in several community outreach and volunteer events during their patrol that included hosting tours of the ship, meeting with local leadership and two beach cleanups.

Alex Haley is a 282-foot medium endurance cutter that has been homeported in Kodiak since 1999. Alex Haley routinely conducts operations in the Bering Sea, the Aleutian Islands and the Gulf of Alaska.
