The Coast Guard (also known as the Coastguard) is a boat that is available for the player to use in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
Presumably designed to serve emergency services, the Coast Guard is a small patrol boat affiliated with the city's law enforcement, given the police radio also present in other emergency vehicles. The boat has some wooden construction, particularly in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and often has first aid kits and life jackets inside as well. Although it may sound like it, there are no missions associated with this boat.
The vehicle will spawn in white with a blue stripe, with "Coastguard" markings on the sides. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories rendition, however, will spawn in a light blue paintjob.

The Coast Guard is reasonably fast, and has the ability to make sharp turns easily. However, its armor is rather low, being vulnerable to pursuing Predators.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Viceport, next to the docks just north of the freighter
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

- Found in each dock surrounding Easter Bay International Airport in San Fierro
- One can be found in the water behind the big green mountain northwest of Bayside, Tierra Robada
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
- Although the Coastguard in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is considered an emergency vehicle and has a police radio, it cannot perform the Vigilante sub-mission, possibly because the game does not know how to spawn criminals on water.
- Coast Guard Launch and Coast Guard Dinghy - Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars equivalents.
