You and your shipmates lead your Sea Scout program, so you make it what you want. In Sea Scouts you may cruise the San Juan Islands or Scuba dive in the Florida Keys. You might paddle down a local river or day sail on the lake. You may compete in the Koch International Sea Scout Cup alongside Scouts from around the world, or cruise aboard “America’s Tall Ship” the USCG Barque Eagle. In Sea Scouts, you build your own adventure! Sea Scouting provides limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t find anywhere else. It is a place to grow and learn, find adventure, and build long lasting friendships.

Advancement and Awards

Sea Scouts are recognized and rewarded for the things they learn and do. You can earn valuable certifications in Scuba, boating safety, lifesaving, and CPR, as well as advance in rank from Apprentice to Quartermaster. Each certification and level of advancement marks your growth as a sailor and a leader.

Focused on the Future

No matter what draws a Sea Scout to the water, a future career in the military, the maritime industry, or a lifelong hobby of recreational boating, Sea Scouting will provide hands-on seamanship and leadership training that will put a Sea Scout one step ahead of the rest, no matter the path they choose.
