    #WorldOceansDay! Through our work in marine safety, fisheries enforcement, and maritime policy, and with the help of our national, international and non-governmental partners we are committed to an active voice for the oceans and promote economic and environmental stability throughout the Pacific and Oceania. World Oceans Day has been celebrated unofficially since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada's International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the Earth Summit – UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Brundtland Commission, i.e., the World Commission on Environment and Development, provided the inspiration for a global oceans day. The 1987 Brundtland Report noted that the ocean sector lacked a strong voice compared to other sectors. At the first World Oceans Day in 1992, the objectives were to move the oceans from the sidelines to the center of the intergovernmental and NGO discussions and policy and to strengthen the voice of ocean and coastal constituencies worldwide. World Oceans Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in late 2008. World Oceans Day events are celebrated on 8 June, the closest weekend, the week, and the month of June.

    Coast Guard crews are assisting Big Island residents... Members of the Coast Guard are working with outreach groups to support recovery efforts on the Big Island of Hawaii. Members of MSST Honolulu@ and the #CoastGuardSectorHonolulu Vessel Boarding and Security Team have been on the Big Island for over a week providing support. While conducting boating safety outreach and lava safety zone enforcement they have also donated time to volunteer efforts. Members dropped off donations in late May to the Hilo Salvation Army’s county designated donation center. The contributions from businesses on Oahu were transported intra-island by Air Station Barber’s Point and delivered by the MSST. Further outreach will be done by the crew of the #USCGCJosephGerczak (WPC 1126) this week at the designated thrift stores in Hilo and Kailua-Kona as well as the Pahoa Community Center.

    Summer is here, and we want to be on the water... The Coast Guard reminds all mariners and watersports enthusiasts to know before you go! A U.S. Coast Guard Station Maui 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew responded to a report of two kayakers beset by weather about a mile south of Olowalu, Maui, Thursday at 1:32 p.m. They worked with our partners at Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services to get both kayakers back to shore safely. Weather at the time was reported as east-northeast winds at 11 mph with seas less than a foot. We recommend checking the weather and objectively assessing your skill level before setting off into the open ocean. The water can look inviting but recognize the wind will use you and any exposed portion of your vessel or kayak as sail making it very difficult to navigate and return to shore.

    On the eve of #MemorialDay we salute those who came before and shed a little light on some of those who gave their lives in service of their country. Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.

    The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help identifying the owner of an adrift dive float and flag found off Kanaha Beach Park, Maui, today. Anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the dive float is asked to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600. It is recommended owners of watersports equipment write their name and phone number on their gear. The Coast Guard offers free “If Found” decals to be placed in a visible location on small, human-powered watercraft through the Operation Paddle Smart program. The information on the sticker can allow response entities to quickly identify the vessel’s owner and aid search and rescue planners in determining the best course of action. The stickers can be obtained for free at local harbormasters, through the Coast Guard Auxiliary, from Honolulu Sail and Power Squadron offices and at select marine retail and supply stores. An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point, Oahu, launched to search the area. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast notice to mariners to keep a sharp lookout for signs of distress. There are currently no reports of missing persons in the area.

    Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, falls on the 28th. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. Our forces in Guam do this each year at Asan Beach Park. The Asan Invasion Beach is a historic site in the village of Asan, Guam. The beaches of Asan were one of the landing sites of American forces in the 1944 Battle of Guam, in which the island was retaken from occupying Japanese forces. The designated historic site includes the beaches extending between Asan Point and Adelup Point and extends inland roughly to Guam Highway 1 and about 100 meters into the water. Abandoned Allied landing vehicles and other remnants can still be seen throughout the island, a reminder of the action that once took place there. #knowyourmil #Guam U.S. Pacific Command

    It’s World Turtle Day! One of the Coast Guard’s missions is to protect living marine resources. This includes turtles, or honu, here in the Hawaiian Islands. A reminder for the safety of the honu and National Safe Boating week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) wants to help us prevent collisions with these beautiful creatures by providing boaters a few easy steps of precautions: -Post a look out when transiting past coral reef habitats and drive slowly (5-10 knots) -“Ease off” the throttle in deeper water, especially in waterways near harbors -Hot spots for turtle strikes include Kaneohe Bay and North Shore of Oahu Sea turtles surface to breathe and linger on the surface while breathing. Larger or older turtles may have delayed reflexes and have a hard time responding to quick-moving boats or Jet Skis. The more honu we prevent from prop-strikes, the more we can enjoy and swim with!

    Representative Lauren Kealohilani Matsumoto, Hawaii State House of Representatives, came to visit the crew members of USCGC Ahi (WPB 87364) today. Rep. Matusmoto discussed National Safe Boating Week and Coast Guard operations with the crew before presenting a proclamation on behalf of the House. Here are some tips to boat safely: 1. Wear a life jacket; they save lives. In Hawaii and Guam, boaters are required to have one Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each person aboard their vessel, and they must be in serviceable condition. Persons 13 years of age and younger are required by law to wear a life jacket at all times when in an open boat, on the deck of a vessel or when waterskiing. 2. File a float plan before you get underway detailing your trip to aid rescuers in the event you are overdue. Sample float plans are found at the Coast Guard Auxiliary website. 3. As a reminder, when boating or recreating near sealife such as whales, dolphins, and sea turtles, please slow your vessel and or board and give them a wide berth. NOAA officials in Hawaii have noted an uptick in the number of broken sea turtle shells recently. Mariners noting stranded or injured marine mammals should contact the NOAA hotline at 1-877-767-9425.

    It's #NationalSafeBoatingWeek! Life jackets available for every boating activity. While boaters are required to have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved wearable life jacket on board for every person on their boat, boating safety advocates recommend that everyone on board wears a life jacket at all times while boating. Accidents on the water happen much too fast to reach and put on a stowed life jacket. Drowning is the reported cause of death in 80 percent of all boating fatalities – and 83 percent of drowning victims in recreational boating accidents were not wearing a life jacket in 2016. We wear ours every day! Do you? Show us your life jacket photos in the comments!

    The annual National Safe Boating Week safety campaign kicks off nationwide, Saturday. Coast Guard Auxiliary flotillas will host events to highlight the importance of boating safety throughout the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend. “The campaign is now in its 60th year of promoting the importance of safe boating,” said Lt. Cmdr. Jon Paul DelGaudio, director of auxiliary and recreational boating safety for the Coast Guard 14th District. “Wearing a life jacket significantly increases your chances of survival during an emergency situation. Coast Guard Auxiliary crewmembers throughout the district will be holding various events throughout the week including vessel safety checks, life jacket fittings, and public information booths.” See more: <a href="https://goo.gl/o2hpmb" target="_blank">https://goo.gl/o2hpmb</a> #NSBW2018

    Two mariners are safe Thursday following their rescue by U.S. Coast Guard Station Maui Wednesday night near Molokini Crater. “We’re working closely with our partner agencies to respond to this grounding in a sensitive area off Maui. There is a small amount of fuel aboard and no sheen has been seen,” said Lt. Brock Blaisdell, command duty officer, Coast Guard Sector Honolulu. “These mariners acted quickly to call for help and don lifejackets when it was necessary to abandon ship. We remind anyone operating in the area to keep a sharp lookout and be cautious as the vessel is now underwater.” The white 44-foot sailing vessel Orion is reportedly sunk in about 70-feet of water off the northeast end of the crater, and the owner is working with the Coast Guard, commercial salvors, federal and state agencies to determine options for removal of the vessel. Despite the depth of water, the Coast Guard has issued a notice to mariners alerting operators to the possible hazard to navigation. Weather at the time of the incident was reported as 8 to 9 mph winds, widespread haze and seas up to 3 feet. The cause of the grounding is unknown at this time. The mariners were reportedly on the second leg of a voyage from California to Oahu when the incident occurred. Their first stop was Hilo.

     History of the Fourteenth District

    Revenue Cutter LogoThe Revenue Cutter Lawrence sailed into Honolulu Harbor Sept. 4, 1849, escorted by Native Hawaiians in outrigger canoes. This marked the beginning of the U. S. Coast Guard presence in the Pacific. For the next 90 years, cutters from the West Coast routinely plied Hawaii’s waters on patrols. In 1939, the Fourteenth Coast Guard District was established ashore in Honolulu with 230 personnel.

    Today, more than 1,150 active duty, 150 reserve, 80 civilian, and 400 Auxiliary men and women make up the Fourteenth District, which boasts the Coast Guard’s largest area of responsibility. The district covers more than 12.2 million square miles of land and sea, with units on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, and in American Samoa, Saipan, Guam, Singapore and Japan.

    The Fourteenth District’s boundaries of responsibility stretch from the Hawaiian Islands and across most of the Central and Western Pacific. The District Commander oversees 25 operational units ashore and afloat throughout the Pacific, which regularly perform missions in maritime safety, protection of natural resources, maritime security, homeland security, and national defense. In 1939, the Fourteenth District was comprised of one 327-foot cutter, two 125-foot patrol boats, two buoy tenders, five small boats and 64 aids to navigation. Today, the district boasts three 225-foot buoy tenders, four 110-foot patrol boats, two 87-foot coastal patrol boats, four small boat stations, two sector commands, an air station, a Far East command, five detachments and over 400 aids to navigation.
