about joining the Coast Guard Auxiliary? You're at the right place.
Here are some programs in which you could participate.
Boat Crew and Patrols - If
you like being out on boats and helping other boaters, you can
become Boat Crew certified to go out and have fun!
Chart Updating - Do you like reading charts and trying
to see if something is out of place? The Delaware River has aids
to navigation that extend from the Atlantic Ocean upstream to
Trenton, New Jersey, the head of tide. If a feature or buoy is
out of place, you would be the one to fill out the paper work
to make sure it gets back to its proper place.
Instructor - Are you a good teacher and/or speaker? Put
your skills to work by being an instructor teaching various courses.
Search and Rescue - Work along side the Coast Guard to
help find and save boaters in trouble.
Vessel Examinations - A vessel examiner makes inspections
of vessels, making sure that everything is okay. The Coast Guard
Auxiliary promotes safe boating through education. Vessel safety
checks are reviews of a boaters equipment for compliance with
federal and states requirements.
Weather - Are you interested in the weather? The Auxiliary
offers courses to learn about different cloud types, temperatures,
and other parameters related to weather.
