Leaders To Sea Program

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to the "Leaders to Sea" Program hosted by the Commander, Naval Surface Force, U. S. Pacific Fleet.

This program helps the Navy tell its story to our community leaders.

Ship embarkations provide unique opportunities to foster citizen awareness and understanding for the role, mission and need for the Navy in general, and the surface combatant in particular. They also highlight the training required to keep our forces ready for any contingency. These one-day at-sea adventures generally consist of an early morning helicopter flight or small boat transfer to a U.S. Navy ship off the coast of Southern California. On board, guests receive a thorough shipboard tour including various demonstrations, and an enjoyable lunch. Guests are returned to San Diego at approximately 4 p.m.

This program is designed for people who are active and influential in business, government or the community, as well as people who are active communicators and opinion leaders. Participants include presidents or chief executive officers of corporations and businesses; presidents/deans of colleges; influential civic and community leaders, government officials, news media owners/publishers; and leaders of significant, broad-based organizations who have not had prior exposure to Naval surface operations. Contact our Leaders to Sea Coordinator at (619) 437-2735 for more information, or fill out a nomination form.
