After seeing the movie The Guardian a few years ago, have you become intrigued by the men and women who put their lives at risk everyday to perform Search and Rescue?
On Tuesday, May 29th at 11am, you are invited to become a spectator at a dramatic, awe-inspiring U.S. Coast Guard Helicopter Search and Rescue Demonstration, right here on Hatteras Island. This impressive demonstration will be performed on the Chicamacomico beach in Rodanthe at milepost 39.5, by U.S. Coast Guard Motor Lifeboat Station Oregon Inlet and the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City. Come watch as these remarkable men and women carry out this exciting demonstration using a 47 ft. motor lifeboat, accompanied by a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter.
This is an opportunity you will not want to miss! The Search and Rescue Demonstration will leave you on the edge of your
beach chair seat!
Admission is FREE with the regular site admission of $6 for adults and $4 for Seniors 62+ and Youth 6-17. Please allow yourself time to park at the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station and Historic Museum, get tickets, and get to the Chicamacomico beach.
