Who we are?

The Newport Sea Base is a place where sunlight, sailboats and sea lions are part of the day. With a commitment to developing character, our desire is to inspire a love for the marine environment in the hearts of youth.

Since 1937, the Newport Sea Base has provided fun and valuable educational maritime-based programs to all youth. Year-round, girls and boys learn oceanography, marine biology, environmental science, boating safety, dinghy and keelboat sailing, canoeing, kayaking, motor boating, and other aquatic-related subjects.

OC Sea Scouts vie for the 2014 William I. Koch International Sea Scout Cup!

Sea Scouts Ben Brough and Laura Roudebush, from defending international champion Ship 90 of Newport Beach, will compete against 39 other teams from Brazil, England, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Trinidad, and the US, from June 22-28, in Long Beach, CA.

Orange County will also be represented by four other teams that qualified in regional competitions.  The Koch International Sea Scout Cup has been won by OC scouts four times.   Best wishes, and sail fast!
