Who are the Sea Cadets?

Royal Canadian Sea Cadets appeal to young people (12-18) craving exciting nautical activities where their personal limits as individuals and team-members will be tested. learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water.

Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships.

Additionally, Sea Cadets can compete for a chance to participate in annual sailing regattas!

Sea Cadets also participate in ceremonial events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage.

The hands-on activities, exciting challenges and leadership opportunities for Sea Cadets are many.

Canada’s motto, A Mari usque ad Mare (“From Sea to Sea“) can be applied to Sea Cadets. With Sea Cadet Corps found all across the country and given Canada’s abundance of water and shoreline, the opportunities are many whether inland or on either coast.
