Recreational Boating Safety
One of the Auxiliary’s primary missions
is recreational boating safety.
This mission is accomplished by qualified
members delivering Public Safety Boating Education training and
classes, by providing voluntary vessel safety checks to boaters, by
visiting with and educating local marine related industries, and
by general outreach to the boating public through boat shows and
other public venues and events.
Operations and Marine Safety
For those interested in boating, the Auxiliary offers
a rigorous level of hands-on training and qualification as boat-crew and
coxswain. Qualified Auxiliarists perform regular safety patrol missions
in their local area and support local boating activities on-the-water
such as regattas, fireworks & fleet visits.
In addition, the Auxiliary works side-by-side with
their active-duty USCG counterparts in many other mission areas,
including environmental protection, Commercial Vessel Safety
Inspections, Port Security and Planning, Licensing and Documentation,
and other vital operational roles. Auxiliarists receive training

The Auxiliary needs people with leadership,

Auxiliarists involved in the recreational boating safety and operations
& marine safety missions.
