Fort Myers About Boating Safely Course Pine Ridge Community Center (next to the fire station) 15608 Pine Ridge Road, Ft Myers, FL 33908
This last year has been no exception to boating accidents. Boating mishaps occur every day of which most could have been avoided by common sense, education and awareness of boating safety.
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary conducts Boating Safety programs that are extremely valuable. If you recently purchased a personal water craft (Jet Ski) or you’re an experienced sailor looking to keep current on boating regulations, you will find the Coast Guard Auxiliary courses to be both informative and useful. Your program leaders are specially qualified in boating education and safety and you’ll enjoy their first hand accounts of their experiences. It’s a winning combination of superb content and excellent leaders delivering information that you can use every day, in or out of the water.
Programs are ongoing throughout the year.
Known as "America’s Volunteer Lifesavers", the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary was established by Congress in 1939 to assist the Coast Guard in promoting boating safety. It boasts more than 35,000 members from all walks of life who receive special training so that they may be a functional part of Coast Guard Forces. Auxiliarists assist the Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as public education, vessel safety checks, safety patrols, search and rescue, maritime security and environmental protection and Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth. Auxiliarists volunteer more than 2 million hours annually to benefit other boaters and their families.
