What is Sea Scouts?

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'll be active in camping, social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests. You'll also have a chance to develop maritime skills that can lead to careers or a lifetime hobby.

Sea Scout Ship 280 has access to multiple boats so you can learn how to sail. During the boating seasons, every member has a chance to try their hand at the tiller, to trim the sails, and all members are taught safe and proper methods of handling boats. Sea Scouts also learn the meaning of buoys and lights, how to take advantage of wind and tide, and how to drop anchor or approach a dock. Day, weekend, and long cruises are held for all ship members.

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 is 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.
