The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters.

The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.

We work partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. Our core purpose is to celebrate Britain's maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people as Sea Cadets.

Plymouth Drake Sea Cadets has played a key part in developing Plymouth's Youth for over 50 years. It is proud of it's part in providing opportunities and social guidance to young people.

Previously located in by the main gate of HM Naval Base Devonport, TS Golden Hind moved to a new building which is shared with the RNR (Royal Naval Reserves), HMS VIVID.
