Sea Scouting has the same purpose and goals as any other Scout Troop, however the main difference lays in the method of delivery.


This is because in Sea Scouting, water and nautical activities are used as the basis of delivering the Balanced Programme. Although most Scouts have the opportunity for boating activities, such as sailing and canoeing, the Sea Scout programme puts considerable emphasis on water activities and also incorporates many aspects of naval and nautical traditions.


The aims of sea scouting are aimed at making a young person as much at home on the water as they are on land. It teaches them nautical skills and seamanship in a range of craft. To aid of this, we have put together a few pages on nautical skills.
