Limitless Opportunities

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 may compete in weekly keelboat races, small dingy regattas, or the Koch regatta, where you sail with Sea Scouts from all over the world. You can learn to waterski, do Eskimo rolls in a kayak or find out how to catch the Walleye, Bass and Salmon the area is famous for. In Sea Scouts, you build your own adventure!
