Brandon Wilkins

Executive Director of Coast Wise, Inc ~ Sea Scout BSA Program

Coastwise Incorporated’s mission is to conduct youth leadership training and support the sea scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America in the state of Maine. This is done through the ownership of sea scout vessels on behalf of individual units; through fundraising to support the ship's mission and operations; and by securing donations, grants, and providing other services and training that the unit's chartering organization and the Boy Scout Council might otherwise be unable to provide. With generous financial donations, volunteer commitment, strong partnerships and community relations, our program is one of the most unique opportunities to connect youth to the waterways of the Maine Coast and beyond.

The Sea Scouts are members of the International Scouting movement with focus on boating and water-based activities. A specialized program for older scouts, member units are called "Ships". Sea Scouting provides a chance for its membership to sail, cruise on boats, learn navigation, learn how to work on engines, compete in regattas and more. For over 100 years, Sea Scouting has promoted better citizenship through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, service experiences, and knowledge of maritime culture and heritage.
