The Sea Party Coalition represents coastal and inland cities and towns, businesses, fishermen, surfers, divers, boaters and other concerned citizens regardless of political affiliation who support a healthy and vibrant coastal economy and oppose proposed new oil surveying and drilling along the Atlantic Coast and in the U.S. Arctic Ocean. We see proposed acoustic air gun surveys and planned federal offshore oil leasing as a threat to marine wildlife, human health and safety, our economy, our environment, and our way of life.

As a better solution to our energy needs we support the development of clean renewable energy including offshore wind energy where responsibly situated.

In 2016 we will support the efforts of those who stand with us for a healthy ocean, coast and the communities that depend on them and work to oppose the efforts of those who promote the expansion of offshore fossil fuel development at the expense of our economy, security, and way of life.
