WHAT IS "SHIP 300"?   Ship 300 is a co-ed BSA Sea Scout unit (aka "Ship") operating in Alviso, California.  Boys and girls between 14 and 20 years old are welcome to consider joining the fun.

We are chartered by the South Bay Yacht Club, Alviso (San Jose), California, in October 2016.

Sea Scout Ship 300 (SSS Spartan) was founded in 2016 to provide Silicon Valley youth the opportunity to develop character and leadership through aquatic activities along the San Francisco Bay. The ship's name signifies the unbreakable spirit of the Sea Scouts through their adventures on land and water, while paying homage to the influence of San Jose State University on rising industries throughout Silicon Valley. As the Chartered Organization, the South Bay Yacht Club recognizes the importance of training young adults to become future leaders and has graciously offered their facilities and resources to support this cause.

Among our various activities, the SSS Spartan crew has learned kayaking, sailing, cruising, seamanship, and more. Our Sea Scouts have even put their aquatic skills to the test by participating in regattas and competing against other Sea Scout ships in the San Francisco Bay Area. Additionally, we serve our local community through conservation projects, veterans affairs, and public events. We even offer opportunities for local Scouting units and the general public to kayak along the Alviso Slough, giving our Sea Scouts the chance to teach others what they have learned. Each of these activities help the SSS Spartan crew grow in the ideals of Scouting, but it's also important that they have fun on the water!
