A Personal Welcome from Flotilla 15-1

  I would like to offer you a warm welcome to U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 15-1 in beautiful Crystal River, Florida. The four cornerstones of the Auxiliary are Recreational Boating Safety, Operations and Marine Safety, Member Services, and Fellowship. On this website you will find information in each of these areas. We invite you to explore online and see all that we offer to the boating public and to our Flotilla members.

 Don Jones, FSO-OP Welcome to this website and to our Flotilla 15-1! An important function of the Auxiliary is to provide operational support to the U.S. Coast Guard. When performing our duties, we wear similar uniforms and are often under military orders of the U.S. Coast Guard. Auxiliary members may qualify for duties via many formal training programs approved by the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (free to members). Each member is encouraged to pursue qualifications for any and all activities that suit the individual's tastes and capabilities. We invite you to visit us to learn which of our activities you would be interested in pursuing.
