  • Special training -- the Auxiliary and the Coast Guard provide training on all aspects of boating.
  • Fellowship -- the auxiliary provides opportunities to meet and have fun with fellow boaters.
  • If you enjoy boating, boat with the best.

Eligibility - Who can join?

Membership is open to all citizens of the United States and its territories who are at least 17 years old.

Facility ownership (radio station, aircraft or boat ) is desirable, but not mandatory. Individuals with special skills or interests that may be useful to the Auxiliary (teaching, public affairs, administration and many others) are also welcome.

New members will need to complete the Auxiliary's Boating Safety and Seamanship Course, Sailing and Seamanship Course, or an equivalent test, in order to participate in some programs. Fellow Auxiliarists will help new members as mentors to help understand information about the Coast Guard and the Auxiliary, from chain of command, to special training, to proper uniforms.
