Public Education through Flotilla 15-1

USCG Boating Classes

Crystal River Flotilla 070-15-1 is proud to present a wide range of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary classes for both novice and experienced boaters. You can find complete course descriptions and course schedules by clicking on the Boating Courses tab to the left.

Since all USCG Auxiliary classes are taught by qualified instructors and follow the official program for each subject, you are welcome to take a class offered by any Flotilla to continually improve your boating skills and increase your safety on the water.

We cordially invite you to register for upcoming classes offered by our Flotilla 070-15-1 by contacting our Public Education Officer, Linda Jones, 352-503-6199, 

While you are attending one of our classes, be sure to take the opportunity to chat with our instructors about boating in our local waters and about the many activities and opportunities offered by our flotilla for the general public and for Coast Guard Auxiliary members. You just may find a group of kindred spirits!

After taking one of our classes, you and your family will be much safer on the water. In recognition of this, many insurance companies offer discounts on boat owner insurance after successful completion of our popular Boating Skills and Seamanship or About Boating Safety courses. Successfully completing either of these courses also qualifies you for a FWC Florida Safe Boating Card.

We hope to see you at one of our classes sometime soon!
