The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is an all volunteer arm of the United States Coast Guard serving the boating public on the Jersey Shore, In the Tradition of Our Heritage. Operations are directed by CG Station Manasquan Inlet and Auxiliary Division 16.

Flotilla 16-05, originally chartered in Island Heights, New Jersey in 1966, has been located in Brick, New Jersey since 1980 and performs services such as conducting Safe Boating Classes, Vessel Safety Examinations, Maritime Observation Missions (formerly known as Safety Patrols) and Marine Dealer Visits around the Jersey Shore. The Flotilla also enjoys the fellowship of its members as well as the advanced training that is received via the Auxiliary Member Training Department.

Flotilla 16-05 is comprised of 24 very dedicated members, four patrol boats, ten boat crew members, four vessel examiners and five public education instructors. Specially trained members serve proudly at Coast Guard Station Manasquan Inlet and the Atlantic Strike Team (AST) that supports the US Coast Guard’s National Strike Force (NSF) located at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ.

We are always looking for interested individuals to join us. You could find yourself saving lives, protecting the environment from polluters, guarding our shores from terrorists, training the boating public to boat safer and much more. That’s our job – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That's life in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We don't just train. We train and perform
