Whether rowing, paddling, sailing or motoring, being part of the team that moves the boat over the waves creates positive, life defining experiences for young people.
Youth can watch the birds, seals, otters, whales, and fish; learn how to fix a crack in the deck, repair a small engine, rebuild a diesel engine, navigate, safely operate a boat and do many other things that are not taught on TV.
At the Tacoma Youth Marine Center, young people learn through experience to be good boaters, good mechanics, and good citizens.
