The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary offers several classes for both new and experienced boaters. CLICK HERE for a schedule of courses and to signup for one of our classes. You'll be glad you did!

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary was founded in 1939 by an Act of Congress. The 30,000 members of the Auxiliary volunteer tens of thousands of hours in support of Coast Guard missions such as Search and Rescue, Boat Safety Checks, Safety and Security Patrols, Public Boating Safety Education, Marine Environmental Protection, and Maritime Domain Awareness.

Here in Savannah the 80 members of our Flotilla operate in an area that stretches from Little River Inlet, NC South to St. Augustine, East to Gray's Reef, and inland West to Augusta, GA.  We patrol these waters with 15 boats and 4 aircraft.
