Sea Scouts

Sea Scouts is an organization within the Boy Scouts (now officially Scouts BSA) that has a rich maritime heritage and has been serving youth for over 100 years.  It is focused on providing young men and women 11-21 with fun and camaraderie on the water while they learn safety, maritime skills, teamwork, community service and leadership.  Our local Sea Scout Ship (Called “Grand Explorer” or Ship 618) has been chartered/sponsored by King Harbor Yacht Club for over 30 years.

Sea Scouts has traditionally been focused on high school age youth, but we are beginning a new program tailored specifically for junior high (ages 11-14) youth.

Our ship focuses on sailing and motorboating.  We learn to sail on our fleet of Cal 20’s, and as we progress in skill level, the youth learn to sail our Martin 242 and Dennis Choate 33 racing sloop.  We help out KHYC where we can at various events throughout the year.  We also teach merit badge classes to Scout troops and provide a “Day at Sea” to introduce younger Scouts to Sea Scouting.

Currently we are sailing after school on Monday and Wednesday evening (weather permitting of course).

We appreciate that the Holiday Parade committee and KHYC has chosen for many years to name us as one of the beneficiaries.
