Welcome to the Flotilla 1-9, District 8CR Web Site

 Welcome to the online home of Flotilla 1-9 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Flotilla 1-9 is actively involved with the very busy boating community of Panama City Beach.  Please let us bring safety to your boating fun in the Panama City Beach area, by performing a free Vessel Safety Check.  We also attend boating events to give out free information, show you how to properly wear your life vest, and give you information on how you can become an active participant in the Coast Guard Auxiliary!

Flotilla 1-9 is located at the U S Coast Guard Station in Panama City.  Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  A social hour begins at 1800 hours (6:00 PM), with a meal prepared by one of the flotilla members. The meeting begins promptly at 1900 (7:00 P.M.) and concludes at 2030 (8:30 PM) .

We invite anyone interested in learning more about the Flotilla and our missions to attend our meetings.  We also invite you to become a part of our exciting and effective all volunteer lifesaving team!  If interested in coming to a meeting, please contact the Flotilla Commander Bob Wells at  850-814-5807 or e-mail
