Icebreaker docks in Seward

The United States Coast Guard celebrated its 224th birthday on Monday, August 4, 2014, and invited area residents and visitors to tours of the Coast Guard Cutter Mustang and the Coast Guard Cutter Healy.

The CGC Healy is a medium icebreaker designed for scientific research in both the Arctic and Antarctic poles. Measuring approximately 420 feet in length, it  can accommodate up to 50 scientists with adequate lab space to conduct research on site.
