Through nautical adventure and fun we inspire young people to learn and develop new skills that give them a head start in life.

The Marine Society offers educational opportunities and financial support for career development to professional seafarers. Our seafarers’ libraries provide hardback and paperback library services to ships and maritime installations around the world, and we also run a highly regarded specialist on-line maritime bookshop
