Welcome to Coast Guard Air Station / Sector Field Office Port Angeles! We are looking forward to your arrival. You should have already received, or will be receiving shortly, a Welcome Aboard Package containing several brochures and other information about the City of Port Angeles and the Olympic Peninsula. This material may be useful in planning your transfer and should aid you in getting established in the community.
Port Angeles is the largest city on the Olympic Peninsula with a population of 19,000. The wild and majestic Olympic National Park is right in our backyard, with world-famous Hurricane Ridge only 18 miles to the south. Across the beautiful Strait of Juan de Fuca, 18 miles to the north, is the city of Victoria, British Columbia. It’s hard to beat the combination of sea and mountains in the same community.
Air Station / Sector Field Office Port Angeles has a small exchange, and there are several department, variety, and specialty stores, as well as some fine restaurants, in the community. The nearest commissary and shopping mall are about a 1-1/2 hour drive from Port Angeles at Naval Submarine Base Bangor and Naval Shipyard Bremerton. Tacoma and Seattle are within a 2-1/2 hour drive.
Homes and apartments for rent or sale are usually available in the Port Angeles and nearby Sequim area. Our housing office works closely with real estate companies, property managers, and real estate investors to provide members assistance in obtaining an apartment or house on the economy using Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). Due to recent changes in the leased housing program, there is currently no Coast Guard leased housing in the area. Contact the Housing Office at (360) 417-5813 to obtain any further information. Temporary lodging is limited to hotels, so you are encouraged to make housing arrangements before arriving.
More reporting aboard information can be found at Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles' Portal Page (CAC Required).
