The proximity of Terrebonne Parish to the Gulf of Mexico, and the
abundance of waterways and wetlands that comprise the largest Parish in Louisiana combine to produce a tremendous commercial and recreational boating population.
Most weekends find residents and visitors alike traveling the expanse of waterways in the parish, partaking in some of the best fishing found anywhere. Where there are boats, there are breakdowns, and sometimes accidents.
The TPSO Water Patrol has responded to thousands of calls since its formation.
The highly-trained officers and well-equipped vessels, are a welcome sight to boaters the victim of breakdown or mishap.
