Nature Coast Vessel Safety Checks Contacts and Information

Both the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the United States Power Squadrons have certified vessel examiners who will perform a free Vessel Safety Check ("VSC") at your boat, at a time of mutual convenience. There is no charge, and no consequences if you don't pass. Our goal is simply to help make boating as safe as possible for you, your family and your friends, through education. Personal pleasure craft, only.

To schedule your Vessel Safety Check contact a Coast Guard Auxiliary Vessel Safety Check Examiner in your area.        Download a Vessel Safety Check form.
