Sea Scouting is the oldest of the Senior Scout programs, dating from 1912.  It is designed for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age, and features Scouting activities in a nautical setting.

Sea Scouts is a specialized segment of the Venturing program, which was organized to address members' boating skills and promote knowledge of our maritime heritage. Sea Scout units, called "ships," focus on sailing and cruising either sailboats or power vessels. During the boating seasons, Sea Scouts learn to maintain and operate then 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.
