Two people and their dog were rescued by the Coast Guard on Sunday in Auke Bay.
The group were in an 18-foot skiff that ran aground on Coghlan Island and then called a friend by phone.
The Coast Guard then dispatched a 25-foot response boat which arrived on scene, picked up the unidentified dog and two people, and transported them back to Auke Bay harbor area.
No injuries were reported.
