The CCGS Cove Isle is an navigation aids tender in the Canadian Coast Guard.[1] Cove Isle is assigned to the Canadian Coast Guard's Central and Arctic Region and is based out of CGS Base Parry Sound, Ontario, on Lake Huron. The ship is classified as specialist vessel and used in a variety of roles:[2]

  • Resupplies and maintaining lighthouse stations along Georgian Bay
  • carries out search and rescue support
  • pollution cleanup duties (as required)
  • science research support

The ship is not strengthened for navigation in ice-infested waters, so she operates from April to December, or when waterways are ice free.[2]

She has a crew of five.[3]
