Sea Scouts - Santa Cruz, CA


Our vessels are a living testimonial to the success of the Sea Scout program, and demonstrate what can be done with the cooperation and hard work of the Volunteers, Scouts, and Sponsors like the Santa Cruz Host Lions Club


As we rebuild our program after the retirement of our Skipper Jim Bosso, who skippered us for fifty (50) years, we are in need of volunteers and funding.  As you may know, a ship is in continuous need of upkeep and repair.  We are looking for men and women who can help us in the Scouting Program, Ships Maintenance/Repair and Fundraising/Marketing committees.


Our budget of 65,000.00 a year supports all ships operations, day cruises, weekend overnights, and our long Summer Cruise.  In addition, we sponsor scouts in need so they can be a part of our program. All training and scheduled activities, and most important repairs, haul outs and maintenance.  Help Keep Us Afloat! DONATE NOW TO S.E.Y.A. INC.
