HAVE A JUNIOR MEMBER DESCRIBE THE AREA, JOB AND ANYTHING ELSE OF INTEREST TO A NEWLY
ARRIVING MEMBER

Congratulations to one of the best jobs in the Coast Guard CGC AHI! Honolulu, HI has many outdoor activities such as
surfing, hiking, biking, snorkeling and diving amongst other things. Lots of tourists visit the island year round and we are
near the world famous Waikiki Beach. You will have the opportunity to see the entire Hawaiian Islands and enjoy a great
experience with the crew at port calls. Great place to have a good time, stay active, and enjoy the Hawaiian weather while
working hard on the job and towards qualification and advancement. There are lot of opportunities to get qualified on
various jobs such as small boat crewman or coxswain and boarding team member. Take advantage of this, an 87 patrol
boat is a great multi mission platform that many wish to be a part of!!!! Again congratulations and we look forward to
having you on the CGC AHI!!!
