Situated near the shores of the Persian Gulf, the island country of Bahrain can at times have some busy waterways. In fact, the U.S. Navy harbor patrol unit in Bahrain is one of the largest and busiest in the entire Navy.
There are 17 boats to cover 14 nautical miles — and that is no easy task.
In the video, you’ll have the opportunity to spend some time with the unit as they patrol. But don’t let your guard down! At around the 2:00 mark, things become quite intense.
There are a lot of things to look out for on even a routine patrol, from swimmers and obstacles in the water to other ships and even criminals or pirates. There’s really never a dull moment, especially when things can turn dangerous at a moment’s notice.
That’s why these units have to be ready for anything every single second that they’re on patrol. Thankfully they have the skills and resources to handle the job.
