The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed, all-volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary was created by an Act of Congress in 1939, and has grown to over 23,000 members who daily support the Coast Guard in all its non-military, and non-law-enforcement missions.
Flotilla 11-1 serves the Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo and surrounding areas in Pinellas County, Florida in providing boating safety education classes to the public. We are conveniently located in downtown Clearwater 510 North Ft. Harrison Ave. just north of Drew St.
Our flotilla supports U.S.C.G. Station Sand Key, U.S.C.G. Air Station Clearwater and U.S.C.G. Sector St. Petersburg. We provide direct assistance, resources and assets to the Coast Guard missions of Search and Rescue, Recreational Boating Safety and Environmental Protection. Operating under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, we perform all the tasks and functions of the Active Duty Coast Guard except direct law enforcement and armed military operations.
