Getting started in Sea Scouting

What makes Sea Scouting unique? It's getting out on the water! Sea Scout units can use a variety of boats; from outboard motorboats to racing sailboats.

You can learn to sail, to row, to paddle, to water ski 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 Scuba dive and take care of boats. 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 later on.

To Find a Sea Scout Unit or Start One

Contact our council's Sea Scout Commodore, Jim Graves, at He can help you match your interests with a local ship, or can help you start your own ship if you like!

What about adults?

Adults can sail too! We need adult leaders who have boating and sailing skills or who are willing to learn. Training is available.
