Vessel Safety Check

One of the Auxiliary’s primary missions is recreational boating safety. This mission is accomplished by qualified members delivering Public Safety Boating Education and Training classes, providing voluntary Vessel Safety Checks to boaters, visiting with and educating local marine related industries, and by general outreach to the boating public through boat shows and other public venues and events.


Here we have a Vessel being towed by an Auxiliary patrol boat.

Operations and Marine Safety

For those interested in boating, the Auxiliary offers a rigorous level of hands on training and qualification as boat-crew and coxswain. Qualified Auxiliarists perform regular safety patrol missions in their local area. They support local boating activities on the water such as regattas, fireworks & fleet visits. In addition, the Auxiliary works side by side with their active duty USCG counterparts in many other mission areas, including Environmental Protection, Commercial Vessel Safety Inspections, Port Security, and Planning, Auxiliarists receive training virtually identical to that of their active duty and reserve counterparts (with the exception of law enforcement and military specific tasks).
