Answer In a Breeze

I often see Coast Guard boats going into the Ventura Harbor. What are they doing in the Harbor?

We asked Tim Burrows from the Ventura Harbor Patrol to answer this.
The US coast guard serves many functions, one of which is boarding vessels for safety inspections and or suspicious activity. They will enter the Harbor and look for suspicious activity or for violations.

They also are part of Homeland Security, so they patrol all water ways (inland / international).

Also, it is easier to board vessels in calm waters, so they will sometimes bring vessels to our dock for inspections and investigations.
