High Adventure on the water.


Whether it’s a weekend outing or a weeklong cruise, 

Sea Scouting provides the opportunity to make lifelong memories out on the water.


When asked, most Sea Scouts say the best part of Sea Scouting was the friends they made, 

from crewmates they saw regularly, 

to competitors from rendezvous,  to foreign Scouts they met at regattas.


Scouts will learn to lead others and give back while serving the community, 

nation, and fellow Scouts because service is a core principal of Sea Scouting.


No matter a Sea Scouts draw to the water, a future career in the military, 

the marine industry, or a lifelong hobby, 

Sea Scouting will provide them the opportunity to choose their path and forge their future.

What Makes Sea Scouting Different?

Sea Scouting builds character through high adventure. As a Sea Scout, you can learn to sail, to row, and to keep a boat in shape. 

You can cruise local waters or go sailing on long cruises far from home. 

You can learn to dive, and you will be active in camping, social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests.
