Ice Breaking underway soon


The Coast Guard Cutter MORRO BAY will conduct icebreaking operations to open the Pipe Island Passage, north and east of Pipe Island and will circumnavigate Drummond Island along the International Boundary Line into the North Channel and exiting via False Detour Passage.

The Coast Guard would like to remind all recreational ice users to plan their activities carefully, use caution on the ice, and stay away from shipping channels, which are being groomed for the opening of the shipping season.
