As entities of Boy Scouts of America we are administered by the Cape and Islands Scouting Council. The Nauset Rotary Club is our business sponsor.
The organization currently owns a fleet of 5 vessels; a 23' O'day sailboat, 18' Hereshoff Catboat, 17' Aquasport motorboat and two historic 19th century surf rescue pulling boats (plus two small dingies to access these vessels).
Through the use of these vessels, during the boating season, we provide practical on the water experiences where students learn sailing and other safe boating skills. We snorkel, picnic on remote islands, camp, cruise, and plan other outings.
During the winter months, we take field trips, tour maritime facilities, develop boating skills from expert teachers, engage in fun activities, and attend special events.
The National Sea Scouting program has For over 100 years promoted better citizenship and improved members’ boating skills through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, service experiences, and knowledge of our maritime heritage.
Sea Scout units – called Ships - are established all across the country on oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes. They provide limitless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t ﬁnd anywhere else. Sea Scouts is a place to grow and learn, ﬁnd adventure, and build long lasting friendships.
