Organization Information

Mission Statement

We volunteer our time and resources, according to our interests and availability, to 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, including environmental protection missions, fishing vessel inspections, Homeland Security, and more. We participate in disaster planning and relief, communications, patrols, examining recreational boats, conducting boating classes, teaching youngsters or saving lives, and helping at boat shows, regattas, and other boating events. We are trained, tested and certified to provide this help.

Description

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.

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 CG 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.
