Sea Scouts

Co-Ed (14-20 Years Old)

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 and service experiences and knowledge of our maritime heritage.

Sea Scout units called ships are established all across the country on oceans, bays, rivers and lakes. They provide limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t find anywhere else. Sea Scouts is a place to grow, learn, find adventure and build long-lasting friendships.

Sea Scout ships use a variety of boats from small outboard motorboats to large sailing yachts and vessels. No matter what your ship does, you will discover thrills you just can’t get anywhere else.

Sea Scouts are recognized and rewarded for the things they learn and do. You 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 your growth as a sailor and as a leader.

Sea Scouts receive training in seamanship and leadership, which happens during ship meetings, long cruises, U.S. Coast Guard sponsored Safety at Sea training and Sea Scout Experience Advanced Leadership (SEAL) training. Wherever you are in your Sea Scout development, you will continue learning every step of the way!
