The law enforcement crews completed four joint boardings. During the boardings Coast Guard members discussed the importance of vessel safety with the mariners, and the Border Patrol agents discussed the rules and regulations that effect the U.S. and Canadian border crossings, specifically within the Taku Inlet.

Vessels are required to submit the proper Notice of Arrival information in accordance with federal regulations when arriving from a foreign port.

Border Patrol agents have the authority to inspect travel documents and conduct customs searches.​
