The Great Lakes Division Sea Cadet program provides real life experience in maritime tradition, underwater exploration and shipboard training.
With highly qualified staff aboard the Research & Training Vessel, PRIDE OF MICHIGAN and support craft, professionally led missions are conducted throughout the Great Lakes system in tandem with the US Coast Guard, NOAA, and the Noble Odyssey Foundation.
Each season, we produce a documentary science film which combines science, history or natural history and features those who train and staff this remarkable program. Our award winning films have achieved recognition in the industry winning both Telly and Communicator Awards.
The Great Lakes Division was created to help young people find their passion for the Great Lakes. We do this through extensive research projects, scuba diving exploration, and various trainings. Our goal is the preservation and understanding of The Great Lakes and its communities.
