A Sea Scout Troop has the same purpose and values as any other Scout Troop, and delivers the same programme, but with a nautical twist. All young people in Scouting have the opportunity to enjoy water activities, but in Sea Scouting, considerable emphasis is on these activities, and many aspects of naval and nautical traditions are incorporated.
