SEA STAR BASE GALVESTON

Sea Star Base Galveston (SSBG) is a 501 c-3 non-profit organization sponsoring one of a kind marine and aquatic programs where young people learn teamwork, leadership skills, confidence, maritime career pathways and an independence of mind, body, and spirit. Programs are open to all and the lessons learned at SSBG last a lifetime.

 

The organization was founded by Captain Charles and Rosemary Doolin whose original idea to build a modest sailing center expanded to become an inspired vision: a high-tech, state-of-the-art complex sitting on 10 beautiful acres of land. SSBG is outfitted with a fleet of 39-boats; a seagoing classroom equipped with the latest technology; a fully handicapped accessible LEED Platinum certified state of the art building; swimming pool; and modern-day marina.    

 

SSBG teaches specialized classes in small- and large-boat sailing, kayaking, marine conservation, navigation, seamanship, and swimming-lessons while instilling a respect for and love of the sea. Summer Camp 2019 is an intense, engaging week packed full of fun and educational activities. Year-round programs are provided, and there is always something more to learn. SSBG also collaborates with The Children’s Center and GISD to offer programs to at-risk youth and students. The entire campus and boats are fully wheelchair accessible and, everyone is accommodated and welcome.
