Sea Scout Base Galveston

Sea Scout Base Galveston Scouting

Get on board with Scouting

Explore the diverse natural wonders of the Texas Gulf Coast marine environment. Master the maritime skills needed to navigate the open ocean. Discover the value of teamwork when working with your crew and meet old friends and new ones.

The sea is an extraordinary classroom where we provide challenging opportunities to Get On Board and experience fun on the water like you never experienced before.  

Kayak the warm Gulf waters, captain your own boat, race against other crews, win the seabase scavenger hunt, claim the golden coconut, dance the night away at our festive luau, take in a friendly game of beach volleyball, dive into our 12’ pool on the bay, stay onboard our 110’ floating marine classroom or pick your dorm room in our state-of-the-art green building. All this and a whole lot more is waiting for you. Don’t forget to pack your Hawaiian shirt…you’re going to need it.

About us

SSBG was created in 2010 by Charles and Rosemary Doolin who transformed their vision of teaching young people about the sea into a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art seaside facility. They got involved in Scouting in 2002 after their son manned the decks of a Sea Scout Ship on Lake Ray Hubbard outside of Dallas.
