USCGC Maple (WLB-207) is a 225-foot United States Coast Guard seagoing buoy tender. Maple is the seventh of 16 in the Juniper class and took the place of the decommissioned USCGC Woodrush.[5]

Based in Sitka, Alaska and moored in Sitka Channel, the crew housing and port facilities of the Maple are located on Japonski Island.[5]

On its maiden voyage, the Maple left a life ring from the Woodrush at the site of the sunken wreck of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald.
