Welcome to the Flotilla 4-5, District 8CR Web Site

Flotilla 45 - Atchafalaya Flotilla


We share a common mission with other flotillas; to promote recreational boating safety and education, maritime security, and operations for the recreational boating community and the United States Coast Guard.


Flotilla 081-04-05 is composed of a team of volunteers. We provide all of this and more to the United States Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

With our combined efforts, the Flotilla reaches out to the boating community to provide supportive and education services such as; emergency communication nets, program visitation, courtesy vessel examinations, demonstration booths, and public relation activities.

Even though we have a very diverse and experienced pool of members, we are currently seeking individuals with leadership skills, a passion for recreational boating, and time to devote to the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and its’ missions. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a members of our Flotilla.

Attention Boaters!  

Does your boat meet all of the US Coast Guard and Louisiana safety requirements? Find out!

The Vessel Safety Check gives you a risk-free way to check that you meet the legal minimum requirements and can help avoid a citation while on the water. The Flotilla 45 Vessel Examiners will make appointments with you to inspect your boat at your storage location or trailered prior to launch.

    Requirements for the Vessel Examination:

    • Have your boat equipped with all of its safety equipment
    • Be present for the exam. 
    • Have your boat registration available
