04/19/2017: "CG Rescues 2 In Lopez Sound"


A Coast Guard crew rescued two 12-year-old male kayakers who became stranded on Crab Island in Lopez Sound, Wash., Wednesday.

The kayakers paddled out to meet Coast Guard Station Bellingham crewmembers aboard a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium and were safely transported to the boat ramp at Hunter’s Point on Lopez Island.


Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound watchstanders received a report at approximately 2:05 p.m., that the boys were paddling together in a single kayak and had been battling the water’s current for over an hour with no progress.

The boys made it safely to Crab Island but had no way of returning to Lopez Island on their own.

Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles crewmembers aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, who also responded to the rescue, remained on scene ready to assist if needed.

Weather at the time of the rescue was reported as a 52-degree air temperature, 48-degree water temperature, 12-knot winds and 1-foot sea swells.
