'There is nothing, absolutely
nothing, half so much worth doing,
as simply messing about in boats'

Kia Ora, Welcome

The New Lynn Sea Scout Group is one of the oldest and most successful Sea Scout Groups in New Zealand and we are current holders of the Jellicoe Trident; the trophy awarded to NZ’s top all round Sea Scout Group.

Our Group is blessed with being located on the portage between the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours, and sits in the lee of the Waitakere Ranges. This provides us with a truly awesome outdoor adventure playground through which we deliver our programme.

We aim to provide a fun mix of indoor and outdoor activities on the land and on the water for young people aged from 6 years to 20 something… and we can also throw in a bit of aeronautical adventure as well to round off the mix.

Why not give us a ring and come and join us for a few weeks to give it a go; the first 3 weeks are free!

The following links are to some articles we wrote for the Professional Skipper and Kids Magazine and provide an overview of some of what we get up to and what Sea Scouts is all about…

Sea Scouting at New Lynn (Kids Magazine)


8 Dec 2014 - New Lynn junior Scouts Lucas, Eleiyah, Josefine and Katie - possibly the youngest Scout group at the Waitemata challenge last Sunday (maybe even the only junior Scouts there of the 12 groups) came 3th in the Ironman challenge! They gave the Venturers a run, swim and kayak for their money!! Good on them. New Lynn Venturers were 1st in Iron man.

2 Dec 2014 - our own Andrew Stevens was recently presented with a very well deserved Local Hero Of The Year Award - see http://www.nzawards.org.nz/kiwi-local-hero/2015/auckland/
