What is Sea Scouts? Sea Scouts Ships are a specialized segment of the Boy Scouts of America's Venturing program, organized to address members’ boating skills, water sports and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage.
Most ships hold formal meetings conducted in either full dress or work uniforms. Swimming, lifesaving, first aid, Coast Guard Auxiliary Sailing and Seamanship, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation courses are taught with the ship by our own officers. The state safe boating course is also offered by many ships.
Sea Scout units, focus on sailing and cruising either sailboats or power vessels. During the boating seasons, Sea Scouts learn to maintain and operate a vessel, with a focus on learning the 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.
It’s about sailing. Snorkeling. Swimming. And row, row, rowing a boat into one adventure after another. It’s the call of the sea—where Sea Scouting replaces ancient mariners with savvy crews of young sailors seeking thrills around every turn. Sea Scouts learn a myriad of maritime skills while forging lifelong friendships. Every adventure is powered by tactical and technical know-how learned while experiencing the real thing. All hands on deck involves rolling up sleeves and running a tight ship. Charting a course for success in any waters. Sea Scouting is an opportunity to sail into the future and beyond for youth ages 14-21.
