WELCOME to the Coast Guard Channel Social Network

The COAST GUARD CHANNEL is celebrating its 7th

year of service, while the COAST GUARD CHANNEL

COMMUNITY, it's social network is celebrating its 6th.

As the founders of the Channel and the Community we are proud to announce that we have reached over 9,000 Community members and that number continues to grow on a daily basis. The Community is an active and vibrant place that has become what it is because of you, the members. We provided an on-line gathering place and you all have turned it into something amazing.

Of course, there are costs involved to keep the Community running spam free, ad free and to support all the content that is being shared. That’s why, from time to time, we ask our members to help offset those costs of keeping the Community operating. And this is one of those times. We appreciate any donations or sponsorships (large or small) to keep the Coast Guard Channel and the Community alive.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Community and the Coast Guard Channel, you can do so by clicking the Contribute button below. After we receive your contribution, you will be featured HERE on the Coast Guard Channel.

If you’d like to do your transaction over the phone, please call us at 831-439-1514 .......... or by mail at:

Coast Guard Channel
5610 Scotts Valley Drive, Suite B552
Scotts Valley, CA 95066

And keep an eye out for our exciting announcement, as we are launching a new and improved Coast Guard Channel coming to your computer monitor very soon.

We thank you for your continued support!
