San Francisco Sea Scouts

About us

Sea Scouting is a youth boating organization with a focus on leadership training.

In San Francisco, we have three unique programs that meet weekly, and our programs cost less than $20 per month. We sail, row, paddle, and learn how to maintain a fleet of traditional wooden boats. See our program list below for more info.

SSS Corsair

Sea Scout Ship Corsair is a male sailing club for ages 14-21. We meet Tuesday nights for instruction and program planning, and Saturdays for projects and sailing. We also have weekend overnight trips, competitions with other scout groups, and have a 2-week long Summer Cruise.

SSS Viking
