Sea Scouts Aboard Tall Ship Coast Guard Barque Eagle -
Applications Accepted Now

Do you want the adventure of a lifetime?  Apply now to sail aboard the tall ship Coast Guard Barque Eagle!  The Eagle is a three-masted barque-rigged ship used to train cadets and officer candidates in the U.S. Coast Guard.  The Eagle was  built in Germany in 1936 and was taken as a war reparation by the U.S. after World War II. Since then the Eagle has been homeported in New London, Connecticut, the location of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

The National Sea Scout Support Committee has again made special arrangements with the US Coast Guard Academy for select Sea Scouts to join as crew aboard the Eagle during its 2014 summer cadet cruise.  This opportunity is available to all Sea Scouts who desire fun, adventure, and a summer cruise to remember - you don't want to miss this chance.  This year's cruises are

  • July 12 – 18
  • July 19 – 25
  • July 26 – August 1
  • August 2 - 8
  • Other dates/ports-of-call may become available.

The ideal candidate is an active Sea Scout who is at least Able rank, a leader in his/her Ship, a SEAL graduate, 16 or 17 years old, in the 10th or 11th grade at the time of application, with an interest in the Coast Guard or other military or maritime career.  Remember though, many prior successful applicants have not had all of these attributes. So who should apply?  Any Sea Scout who is interested!

The National Sea Scout Support Committee is pleased to announce that a new online resource is now available to Sea Scouts and Sea Scout leaders. The resource is called “Sea Scout Wiki” and is built on the same software that supports the popular online encyclopedia, Wikipedia

Sea Scout Wiki is an online forum for sharing success stories and best practices for promoting BSA’s Sea Scout program. Sea Scout Wiki is built by Sea Scouts and leaders who have experience with making Sea Scouting work well … and having fun doing it. If you would like to get involved in building Sea Scout Wiki, email National Committeeman Bruce Johnson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

A link to Sea Scout Wiki is being added to the Sea Scouts BSA website. Over time the Wiki will be fully integrated into the Sea Scouts BSA website. Let us know how we can improve the wiki to make more useful to you.


Voice of the Sea Scout Survey

The National Sea Scout Boatswain is looking for your input, along with the input from all your shipmates! We need your voice in order to set a course for the future of Sea Scouting. In order for your voice to be heard, your need to fill out the "Voice of the Sea Scout" Survey and encourage your entire ship to do the same. From programs, to technology, advancement and more, we want to know what you think! The survey should take you less than 30 minutes to complete but could bring a lasting impact to our program.

Take the Survey Here!
