About Boating Scout

Boating Scout’s mission is to make boating accessible to everyone. We want to educate everyone on how fun and safe boating is and break down all the barriers to entry.

Boating Scout is the online community for boating. Our community helps and supports newcomers and seasoned professionals. Boating Scout will offer the ability to find boating resources like boat launches, lakes, service centers, and storage, all near your location. You’ll see what each area has for boating and if it fits the style of boating or experience you are looking to enjoy.


We believe boating is best as a shared experience. The more people get on the water, the better for the activity. We want to increase awareness of undiscovered areas, boating safety, and boating etiquette.

Our directory resources rely on boaters like you to help maintain the information. Directory resources can be contributed to by anyone, and we encourage as many people as possible to take part.

The Team

Boating Scout is created and maintained by real boaters. Each team member has a different experience in boating and allows us to write about a wide range of topics, ranging from Jon Boats to Pontoons.

Keeping our educational content accurate and up to date is important to us. If you find inaccurate information on one of our resources, please contact us.
