US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle to arrive in Dominican Republic, host free public tours

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle (WIX 327) is scheduled to arrive in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Saturday, at 10 a.m., and will be open for free public tours through Monday.

The Eagle is scheduled to moor at Pier 10 in Playa Punta Torrecillas in Santo Domingo. 

Tours are scheduled to be available the following dates and times:

  • Saturday (1 p.m. to 4 p.m.)
  • Sunday (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.) 
  • Monday (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)

Known as “America’s Tall Ship,” Eagle is a 295-foot, three-masted barque used as a training vessel for future officers of the United States Coast Guard. It is the largest tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes and the only active square-rigger in U.S. government service.

While the primary mission is training the cadets, the ship also performs a public relations role for the Coast Guard and the United States, making calls at foreign ports as a goodwill ambassador. During this year’s cruise, Eagle will leverage its unique ability to foster international relations with critical partners throughout the Americas.

For continuous updates about Eagle to include port cities, tour schedules, current events, and photographs of cadets and active-duty crew members, you can follow the cutter’s Facebook page here and Instagram feed here.
