Welcome to the District 13 Web Site

Willamette River

Welcome! We are the Thirteenth District of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary. This is one of the largest districts, in geographical area, covering four states in the Pacific Northwest: Washington, Oregon, Montana and Idaho. There are over 4,400 miles of shoreline from the mighty Pacific to lakes and navigable rivers. Our district is comprised of three sectors: Sector Puget Sound, Sector North Bend and Sector Columbia River. 

Our responsibility to the U.S. Coast Guard, our Marine partners, and the boating public is that we carry out our number one job: Recreational Boating Safety (RBS)! We must always remember that when we are in uniform, we are acting as a member of Team Coast Guard and we must conduct ourselves in a professional manner. Wear the uniform properly and with pride, whether in the presence of the Coast Guard, visiting a Marine partner, or interacting with the public. We must train and show our membership not only how to do their jobs, but the professional image we project out! Semper Paratus!

If found paddlecraft sticker 

ALL paddlecraft and small vessels should be marked with an 'IF FOUND' Sticker. This information can aid search and rescue crews in knowing who to look for if a kayak, canoe, board or row boat is found without a person. 

If you are not in distress and your paddlecraft or small vessel has accidentally gone adrift, the contact information on the stickers can free up crews for other cases and save valuable resources and time. 

Place the ID sticker in a conspicuous location on your vessel and fill out the information with a permanent waterproof marker. Make sure to include a second contact number of a person who would likely know your whereabouts.

You can obtain an 'IF FOUND' sticker free of charge, from your local United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, by emailing your NAME and ADDRESS to
