CCGH Siyay is a Canadian Coast Guard hovercraft based in Richmond, British Columbia.

The Siyay is a Type 400 AP1-88 ACV. Her sister ship, the CCGH Sipu Muin, is based at Trois-Rivières, Quebec. The Siyay is one of two hovercraft currently operating out of the Sea Island Coast Guard Station. The other hovercraft is the CCGH Moytel.
