Sea Scouting builds character through high adventure. As a Sea Scout, young people can learn to sail, to row, and to keep a boat in shape. They can cruise local waters or go sailing on long cruises far from home. They can learn to dive, and can be active in camping, social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests.

For over 100 years Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship and improved members’ boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage.

Sea Scouts is youth led and adult mentored. Elected youth leaders plan and conduct the program and adult leaders guide and support their efforts as they learn important leadership and life skills like navigation, seamanship and engine maintenance. As they gain experience they will have the opportunity to contribute as a leader in the ship. Sea Scouts are recognized and rewarded for the things they learn and do. They can earn valuable certifications in SCUBA, boating safety, lifesaving, and CPR, as well as advance in rank from Apprentice to Quartermaster. Each certification and level of advancement marks their growth as a sailor and a leader.
