Sea Scout Pic

For nearly 100 years Sea Scouts from the Chief Seattle Council have been cruising the waters of the Salish Sea on sailboats, power boats, canoes, kayaks and more recently stand up paddle boards.

The Sea Scout Mission is the same as the Boy Scout Mission; to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices and to internalize the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  We just do that on the water.

Some Sea Scouts are looking for a career on the water, some want to go to the Navy or Coast Guard Academies, and some just want to be life-long boaters.  All are welcome to join a ship (our term for troop or crew) and look to the far horizon. 

If this sounds like the kind of adventure you are looking for, contact the Commodore of the Chief Seattle Council Fleet, Karin Leach Leach Picat  She can answer questions about Sea Scouting and help you locate a Sea Scout Ship in your area.

The Council Sea Scout coordinator is contact Doug Mitschke at 206-902-2308.
