STUNNING: US Coast Guard boards drug submarine while in pursuit and seizes it!

This is an amazing video of the US Coast Guard boarding a semi-submersible drug submarine while in hot pursuit. Just watch:



Here’s their description of the video:

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro (WMSL 755) crew members board a self-propelled semi-submersible suspected drug smuggling vessel (SPSS) June 18, 2019, while operating in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Purpose-build smuggling vessels like SPSSs are designed to hold large quantities of contraband while evading detection by law enforcement authorities.

If that isn’t ‘like a boss’, I don’t know what is because that was just an incredible display over bravery and duty.

We’re gonna make this an open thread for ya, so here’s another Dodo video that you’ll love:

  1. The ducks with the dog is so cute! I really love when you guys post such videos. It’s my “feel good” hit of the day. 🙂

  2. Well, I finished cutting the grass, now I’m off to the gunsmith. Ironically, I have more time to blog when I’m at work.

  3. I was in the Marines for 8 years and always wondered about our 4th branch. Apparently, they don’t fu_k around either!

  4. The best part of the sub capture was the fearlessness and bravery of the men involved.

    There are questions I have as to why was the sub was on the surface in the first place? Was the sub designed to run on the surface? If that is the case then I wouldn’t want to be in that thing, especially knowing that it can’t outrun the law or dive to escape capture. If it was a submersible then why didn’t they dive when they realized they were spotted? It doesn’t make sense for the drug smugglers to not be able to escape by diving. The downside of this scenario is there is certain to be more of these drug subs.

      1. I don’t remember, that’s why I was researching it. I didn’t find anything, but it seems that it was from the commies.

    1. It’s wild how they all have fallen. I get it, if PM gave both sides of the argument they’d get harrassed and mocked mercilessly. Where’d all the bravery go?

  5. The men who jumped on top of the sub gave me chills, their fearless bravery at not knowing what they would face but willing to take that risk anyway should make every American proud. All our great Military should be honored every day and our Veterans treated with the respect they deserve, they should have the best medical care before anyone, especially the slugs in DC.

    1. In full combat gear and no personal flotation devices obvious!! Yep, that’s fearless bravery.

  6. Love the Dodo! My two little dogs have been living together for nearly five years and barely tolerate each other!

    1. I saw that. If they wanted really fair pay, they should be paying people to watch them. Who watches kickball, anyway? It’s a game for Eurotrash and third-worlders.

  7. Finally got to watch the video. USCG has some real badass warriors!
    Watched it again, this time on a bigger screen. Impressive!

  8. That was a thrilling board & capture video! Thanks for posting this, Scoop! Loved it when they jumped on and forced the hatch open.

  9. Why doesn’t the sub dive? The smugglers must know the Coast Guard has no way to detect them underwater. If the sub can’t submerge and has to run on the surface what’s the point in using it? A small radar target?

    1. I’m guessing that is the way that particular sub is designed. They are really going to have up their smuggling game.

      1. Yeah, it’s not an actual submersible. Probably designed to have a low visual and radar signature.

  10. That was just awesome, I love all our Military but the USGG doesn’t get the credit they deserve, that was mighty fine work right there !

    1. I suspect they also don’t get the pay they deserve, either, Nana. But that seems to be the way of the world, doesn’t it.

  11. My Grandson just recently graduated from the Coast Guard Academy,so a big Semper Peratus to the US Coast Guard.

  12. This is all the online veteran community can talk about…and we all uniformly raze on the Coast Guard all the time (out of good fun of course). But this is next-level badassery.

    Promote above peers & send those two savages to BUD/S

  13. These are just immigrants trying to cross a border, no? Why criminalize this? I would like to see more of the tape since this is a great moment for those who keep us safe.

    1. Maybe if it could fully submerge it would have been more difficult to detect. They certainly wouldn’t have been able to board it.

  14. God Bless you Coast Guard, you never get enough credit for all the lives you save at sea.. all the drug interdiction’s.. Cuban refugees you save from drowning..

    Greatest of respect Coast Guard, from an old one time Cold War Airman.. Semper Fi.

    1. Yes, and not to mention all of the drunken boaters saved from Davey Jones’ Locker.

  15. The US Coast Guard doesn’t get enough credit because that’s some Clint Eastwood, John Wayne stuff right there.
    Scoop, I’ll hit up next month with another donation. I don’t want you going anywhere !

    1. I did the monthly thing on my credit card. I’m fairly certain that we can trust Scoop.

      1. IMO everyone who is a regular here at TRS should pitch in. Hopefully newcomers will stick around and donate too. I have several sites in my bookmarks, but I rarely visit them. The Right Scoop is definitely my favorite place for news and 98% of the people here are actually tolerable. “wink emoji here”

      2. Much appreciated Doc. Like I said above, it’s not something I like to mention.

        And you can. Although I don’t keep that kind of data. Stripe handles it in their system.

  16. Sorry to hear about your financial straights, Scoop. Hopefully, with the increased Disqus traffic, more people will sign up. One of my favorite YT channels was demonitized and is using Patreon for support
    He’s got over a million subscribers, but pitifully few chip in to keep his channel afloat.

    Oh yeah, the sub. I read a while back that the cartels were buying old, diesel-electric boats retired from the combloc countries for smuggling.
