Serving The Treasure Coast from Sebastian to Fort Pierce

First organized during World War II, in Vero Beach, Florida, as the civilian defense "eyes and ears" of the US Coast Guard station in Fort Pierce, Florida, USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 56 still proudly stands ready to serve the communities of the 7th District, 5th Division of the United States Coast Guard.

It is our mission to promote boating Safety and education to the communities of Sebastian, Vero Beach and Indian River County. 

We achieve success in this mission through public programs about Boating Safety, Navigation and Seamanship, free Vessel Safety Checks and regular safety patrols on the waters of Indian River and the beaches of the Treasure Coast.

We welcome your visit to our site and invite you to come and join us in our service and our fellowship.
