It costs Juniors and Cadets about £2.00 per session, there is 1 session for Juniors per week and 2 sessions for Seniors per week.
To become a Junior you need to be between 10 and 12 years old.
To become a Cadet you will need to be over 12. We have a Royal Marines Cadet Detachment and you need to be over 13 years old for this.
Adults are also welcome to get involved with helping out, either as a member of the unit's teaching staff or as a member of the unit committee.
Come along on one of our Friday parade nights to meet with the team.
One thing you can be sure of, is that at our unit there are lots of friendly faces waiting to welcome participants aboard. The officers and instructors are all highly trained to make sure every aspect of Sea Cadet life is enjoyed. Rest assured that while you will find activities that are thrilling, they will also be safe.
We also have a lot of experience with young people and special needs.
