About

The Coast Guard 13th District is the gateway to the North Pacific and Alaska. D13’s Area of Responsibility encompasses four states and the entire Pacific Northwest coast.

The Coast Guard first established its presence in the Pacific Northwest with the construction and operation of 16 lighthouses along the coast built between 1852 and 1858. The presence was reaffirmed in 1854 with the entry of the Revenue Cutter Jefferson Davis to Puget Sound. Today, D13’s headquarters is located in Seattle with three Sector offices managing operations in their respective areas – Puget Sound, Columbia River and North Bend.

The men and women of D13 conduct a vast array of daily operations in support of the Coast Guard’s statutory missions. Our crews can be found conducting search and rescue, patrolling coast, sound and North Pacific to enforce safety and fisheries regulations, conducting safety and compliance inspections and exams on commercial vessels and waterfront facilities and protecting our nation’s strategic defense and critical infrastructure.

D13 is home to the largest domestic ferry system moving 24 million passengers, 11 million vehicles annual across 10 routes, the 3rd largest domestic port and the 3rd largest cruise ship industry in U.S.

D13 is made up of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. More than 3,000 active duty and reserve members, Coast Guard Auxiliarists, and civilian employees are stationed in the Northwest.
