With nearly 25,000 members, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary actively provides safety patrols on area waterways and regularly meets with the boating public at marinas and in classrooms. We also directly assist the U.S. Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as search and rescue, and marine environmental protection.
Flotilla 22 is based at the tip of Sandy Hook, NJ at the USCG Station. We operate over 12 surface facilities and have more than 50 active members supporting USCG Station Sandy Hook in all aspects of Search & Rescue, Marine Safety, Environmental Protection, and Recreational Boating Safety.
As a member of our Flotilla, we will provide you with hands-on training in the programs and activities that interest you. You can perform safety examinations of recreational boats, or crew on Search & Rescue patrols, and much more!

It is the purpose of this Flotilla that we support the US Coast Guard in its missions of Boating Safety, Search and Rescue, and Homeland Security. We will accomplish this through our active participation in the First District - Southern Region and the Second Division of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. We augment the regular and reserve forces to extend and expand upon the capabilities of Coast Guard Forces. We will conduct ourselves at all times with Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty as we uphold the traditions and standards of the US Coast Guard. We will focus our efforts on the missions of Coast Guard Auxiliary service to Boating Safety, Public Education, Operations, and all other missions as assigned to us. As members of such a crucial volunteer organization we will maintain standards of professional conduct that meet or exceed those of the Auxiliary and the Coast Guard.
