Governor Cuomo Signs Brianna's Law to Strengthen Boater Safety

Due to the Covid -19 crisis we are putting our boating class schedule on hold. We willl reschedule our classes as soon as we are able.

Don't be fooled by some organizations advertising a free course.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the only organization commissioned by the US Government to support the US Coast Guard. Our experienced instructors make the difference between just taking the course and actually learning how to enjoy your boat, and remain safe on our waterways.


The cost will be $50 for single w/ book, $75 for double w/ one book, $100 for four w/ one book.  Additional books cost $15 each.   Sign up with a friend and or family member and get the discounted prices. 

Modern Marine Navigation online self-study course costs $40.00 and is available at

Islip Flotillia 1-3

Flotilla 01-03 is located in Islip, NY. We help patrol the Great South Bay and support US Coast Guard Station Fire Island. Our meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at the Recreation Center in Brookwood Hall, Islip Town park in East Islip on Irish Lane (between Montauk Highway and Union Blvd.) Doors open at 7:30pm and the meeting starts at 8:00pm.

If you don't want to attend a meeting, you can still take advantage of the services we provide to boaters. Our most popular are the boating safety classes and vessel safety checks.

Membership in the Coast Guard Auxiliary is open to U.S. citizens, at least 17 years old, and pass a basic background check. There are no upper age limits or height/weight standards, although for operational activities, you must be physically able to perform certain tasks. There are no minimum service hours – you can serve as little or as much as you want.

You do not have to own a boat or participate in water-based operations to join the Auxiliary.

With nationwide membership, 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.

The Auxiliary needs people with leadership, administrative and technical skills (such as web site design, computer server administration, graphic design, photography, videography, communications, public relations/public affairs, instruction and instructional design, and personnel services) to support those Auxiliaries involved in the recreational boating safety and operations & marine safety missions.

Come join us and see what we are all about! If you plan on attending a meeting please use the contact us page
