About Flotilla 74




Flotilla 74 is in District 7, which covers Florida, north to South Carolina and most of Georgia, and south to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Our Flotilla has members from throughout the Brandon, Florida, area. We are a growing group of boating enthusiasts of all ages and walks of life. Some of us own boats, others do not. Some of us have many years of experience, others are just beginning the adventure.

We also greatly value fellowship and have a variety of social events throughout the year, from Christmas parties to boating BBQs on an island near the mouth of the Alafia River.

We volunteer our time and resources according to our interests and availability. We promote the Coast Guard and its missions primarily the Coast Guard's Recreational Boating Safety Mission in the Tampa Bay area and in all its local missions except law enforcement and military operations. This includes environmental protection missions, fishing vessel inspections, Homeland Security and more. We participate in disaster planning and relief, communications, patrols and examine recreational boats. We also conduct boating classes, teach youngsters and help at boat shows, regattas and other boating events. We are trained, tested and certified to provide this help. 

If you're an American citizen 17 years of age or older you can become a member! Applicants complete a short Orientation and Entry Training Program. Once this is completed, you'll have the opportunity to gain additional boating knowledge, skills and qualifications by participating in free training programs. The opportunity to increase knowledge and skills through training and experience with the Coast Guard and Auxiliary is a primary reason many people join the Auxiliary. Training programs range from simple in-flotilla lessons through advanced specialty courses and programs. Qualified members enthusiastically share their knowledge, experience, expertise, and time in helping fellow members learn and advance.
