U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Division 5 is an integral part of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, 5th District, Southern Region serving the States of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. Our Division serves the Hampton Roads region with flotillas in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Smithfield, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. Our backgrounds, interests and skills bring a wide variety of talent and services to the boating public and the United States Coast Guard.

Did you know that Auxiliarists donate more than 2 million hours annually to benefit other boaters and their families? That's why the US Coast Guard Auxiliary is called America's Volunteer Lifesavers. Division 5 dedicated members teach recreational boating safety courses to the public, perform free vessel safety checks, work side-by-side with the active Coast Guard by standing administrative and communication watches, and perform safety patrols. 

We are always looking for new members to wear the Auxiliary uniform and share in the proud traditions and missions of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the U.S. Coast Guard. The website includes a lot of information about our programs and services in support of the Coast Guard and other useful items for our members and the boating public.

I invite you to take a look around. Please feel free to contact me or one of the flotillas in Division 5 for additional information.
