Sea Scouts provide a range of program opportunities for youth from 14-21 years old.  For nearly 100 years Sea Scouts of the Chief Seattle Council have been cruising the waters of the Salish Sea on sailboats, power boats, canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. 

The Sea Scout mission is the same as the Boy Scouts mission: To prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices and to internalize the Scout Oath and Law.  We just do that on boats.

Visit a Sea Scout Ship meeting and discover the adventure that awaits you on the water.  For more information, contact one of the Skippers listed below or the Commodore of the Chief Seattle Council Fleet, John Dellinger, at
