Cruise with the Us Coast Guard!
Each year the US Coast Guard and Sea Scouts, BSA team up to offer the cruise opportunity of a lifetime - a week long cruise as a crew member aboard the tall ship USCG Barque Eagle.

Jul 31 - Aug 6, 2011 (New Bedford, MA - New York, NY), and
Aug 7 -13, 2011 (New York, NY - New London, CT)

The ideal candidate will be an active Sea Scout who is at least Able rank, a leader in his or her Ship, a SEAL graduate, 16 or 17 years old, in the 10th or 11th grade at the time of application, and with an interest in the Coast Guard or other military or maritime career.
